Family Activity Day

Dear Parents

I am writing this on behalf of the St Mary’s Parents Association. The next event is Family Activity Day and the date will be Saturday 25th April, please see details on attached flyer, Charlton children are also very welcome to come along with their parents.

This day is free of charge and hot food will be available to purchase – jacket potatoes, burgers etc. The Family Quiz night in the evening will be hosted by Dr. Kowalewski and Mr Rolph is a night not to be missed.  Ticket prices are only £1 per person and again, there will be a break for hot food when you can purchase: chicken curry, potato wedges, burgers and hot dogs. Pancakes and other desserts will be available throughout both events. Please see the attached flyer to purchase tickets for Quiz night.

As always the Parents Association need volunteers to help throughout the day for various duties please see below and if you can give any amount of time please reply to me (Lisa) with the hours you can be available?

Kitchen help Some of us old ‘ex’ parents have realised that there has been a bit of a hole in handing over Kitchen duties to other parents still with children at School. Our children left to go to college last year but we are coming back for the Activity day to show others how the equipment works and the food cooked which have worked for us over the years, this will hopefully instill confidence in new parents being able to help with food at further events. If you would like to help in the kitchen please reply, as we will set a schedule, realising that some may not be able to do all day and evening.

Bar help Day and Evening please.  Everything will be explained and there will be experienced people on hand to help? ( To refresh parents!)

Kids Bar Day and Evening please. Again everything will be explained and there will be experienced people on hand to help?

Cake Stall To supply cakes or desserts or would be able to help on this stall?

Plant Stall To supply plants or would be able to help on this stall?

Activities The SMCPA are fortunate to have teaching staff who give their time outside of School hours to help with events. Mr Rolph, Dr. Kowalewski amongst others are arranging outdoor team matches such as cricket, 5 a- side football, volleyball and netball shoot outs, (will be changed to indoors if bad weather). Parents may also participate but if you are unable to do this, then perhaps you could be a referee or Marshall? (This would help out greatly.)

Giant connect four, Giant Jenga, Twister A couple of parents who are happy to rotate throughout the day please?

Just one other request, we will be holding a raffle if you are able to donate any prizes please either bring them with you on the day or take into School for attention of SMCPA.

If you are able to help please reply to

Thank you for taking the time to read this information and we look forward to seeing you on the day
