Latest from the PTA: Newsletter w/c 8th November 2016

Christmas Fair – Friday 9th December - 6-8pm At School!

Non-uniform letter coming out this week, please reply if you can help out!

 ‘Christmas Gifts’ Project

Your child has produced a piece of Christmas artwork, which can be applied to Xmas cards, and mugs etc. Order forms will be in book bags by Friday, and need to be back in asap to get the products before the Xmas Fair. All proceeds to FOH.

Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ - URGENT

Hillside have placed a bid to the Tesco Bags of Help initiative for funds to improve our school field. The supermarket has teamed up with Groundwork which see grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 being awarded to environmental projects. NOW shoppers are being invited to visit Tesco Helsby to vote for who you think should take away the top grant. Voting is open until 13th November so we’d be grateful if you and any friends/family could support our bid for improvements to our school field. You can cast your vote using a token given to you at the check-out in store each time you shop.


2nd-Hand Uniform Sale – 18th November – 2.30pm School Hall

If you have any good quality uniform that your child has outgrown, would you kindly donate them to the FOH uniform sale please? We ask that all uniform including P.E kits/coats etc is to be washed and all name labels to be removed. If you can hand them to the office by 17th November, it would be much appreciated! These items will then be sold at the uniform sale on 18th November with all money going to FOH funds. Many thanks!


ClothesAid Collection – 22nd November – 9am  School Hall

After a successful 1st clothes collection with ClothesAid in the Summer, we have arranged for another collection on 22nd November. We raised a whopping £90 on our first collection! So, start now by putting to one side those outgrown clothes, shoes and un-used handbags and let’s see if we can beat £90 on this next collection.
Look out for the plastic bags in book bags w/c 14th November.

Next FOH Meeting

Monday 21st November, 7pm , at the White Lion, Alvanley. All Welcome!
