Dear Parents

The PTA/Fundraising Committee will host a Valentine's Cake Sale next Friday the 12th of February.  This will take place in the Atrium from 8.30 am.
As usual we are asking you, the lovely bakers of the school, to get your wooden spoons and bowls out to help make this a success, by donating any cakes, buns, breads or pastries.  Anything at all will be greatly received.  All cakes can be dropped into the Atrium from 8am that morning.

We will also have a raffle on the day.  Ciara Burns has very kindly offered to bake a fabulous Valentines Chocolate Biscuit Cake for this.   Kim Brady and Ciara Burns will be selling tickets for the raffle at the school gate from Wednesday the 10th.  They will also be available to buy at the Cake Sale.

We look forward to seeing you next Friday

Chairperson of the PTA/Fundraising Committee
