On Thursday 21st March, School Council and FoSJS will be holding a Pop-Up Shop event in school. The shop will stock high quality gifts such as toiletry gift sets, candles and other gift items at a very reasonable price. These products would make an ideal gift for showing appreciation, for a birthday present or for Mother's Day which is just around the corner.

Valentines Fundraising

We have some exciting events planned to celebrate Valentine’s Day in school. On Valentine’s Day, children will be able to enter our photo booth to have photographs taken with friends for 50p at break and lunchtime. The photographs will be ready for collection on Friday 15th February. On Friday 15th February, we will also be holding a Valentine’s-themed coffee morning from 8:30am. It would be LOVE-ly to see you all for a cuppa and a sweet-treat before school. Children will also be able to buy buns at break time on this day. As always, donations of cakes and buns, baked or shop-bought, would be greatly appreciated.
