It’s snowing outside – but in here, we’ve got fruit kebabs = joy
The Sweet & Savoury snack stall was an absolute triumph for the three infants’ classes today, raking in a £179.00 profit and boasting a truly beautiful array of foodstuffs.
Thanks so much to everyone who contributed. It’s really great to see how people have managed to expand the old “cake sale” brief and still make good money with plenty of sweet treats included.
Such an anxious moment, making that crucial cake decision.
Don’t worry, girls – plenty left to buy.
Although there’s also plenty of people to buy them! Thanks to all the brave stall-holders for your help.
The Orion cake sale last summer – happy days are here again.
It seems a while since this blog featured a photo of a giant table groaning under the weight of many cakes, so here is one. The infants’ classes (Years 1 and 2) have opted for a Sweet & Savoury Snack Stall as their fundraiser this Friday. The proceeds go to all three classes – Delphinus, Andromeda and Ursa – so we hope you’re very hungry… Please donate if you can, and definitely come and buy.
“Stick ’em up, pardner!” Put this lot in stetsons and we’ve got a posse.
Conveniently timed at 2:00pm on the same afternoon is the extremely important Summer Fair Planning Meeting (meet in the school lobby). The theme this year is Cowboys & Cowgirls, which we’ll be happy to interpret as loosely as necessary, in keeping with successful tradition. The point is to put on a fantastic fun summer fair with tons of things to do… as well as raising a load of money for HSA activities next year. Saddle up and get on down to school, bringing your Wildest and Westest ideas with you.
Snap ’em up while they last…
Bring on your iced fancies this Friday at the Columbia & Delphinus cake sale after school: in the playground if it’s dry and in the lobby if it’s not.
Will anyone be baking “Ted’s quadruple chocolate cake” from our gorgeous school cookbook (UK section)? We can only hope so… Copies of the book are still available from Andrea at £5 a pop, and worth every penny.
And while we’re on the subject of the cook book, we owe a big THANK YOU to Steve at Ace Graphics, who not only cut us a fantastic deal on the printing, but donated £20.00 to the HSA out of the goodness of his heart.
Delphinus and Heracles moved a cake mountain today, raising £175.00 to split between the two classes. Thank you, cake bringers and cake buyers! The impressive total is just £1.92 short of Andromeda and Draco’s champion effort in January. Can the Nursery and Aquila topple that record on 28th March..?
…meet fairy cake!
Good result, customers?
There’s superb ceramic work going on in the mobile as, class by class, the whole school gets involved with Artist-in-Residence Claire Bevacqua’s totem pole project.
On Thursday 13th March we need volunteers with spades to pitch up at school at 9:00am and help prepare the ground for the nine totems being created.
Before that, though, there’s World Book Day to think about! Next Thursday, 6th March (or 7th March for Cygnus children), every child is invited to dress as a favourite character and donate £1.00 to the school.
While you’re searching for inspiration, don’t forget the Delphinus & Heracles cake sale tomorrow! “The Incredible Book-Eating Boy”, anyone?
Support Delphinus & Heracles with cakes and biscuits!
This Friday’s cake sale – 28th February – is for Delphinus and Heracles classes. Heracles has the fewest pupils of any class in the school this year, so do donate sweet treats, bought or homemade, to help them along!
With Delphinus, they’ve got to raise more than £176.92 if they’re to beat Andromeda and Draco’s giant effort in January…
Joy and cake sales – hand in hand.
Now that all classes have completed their Fun Runs in magnificent form, it seems only right to give those kids some cake! It really has been an impressive show of sporting determination – and it’s good to see the funds coming in, too.
The Delphinus & Nursery cake sale on Friday is the last of the year: bring cakes, buy cakes. Thank you!
She’s run a mile – give the girl a cake!
Delphinus & the Nursery are joining forces for their cake sale after school on Friday 21 June. Go, buy and feast – it’s your last chance this year!
