Dear Parents and Carers,

 Very nearly there!

 A Massive Thank You!

Thank you so much to the

Friends of St Winifred’s for an absolutely fantastic Family Fun Day  and thank you all for your amazing support on the day. It really was a wonderfully inclusive community event.


We will be saying ‘goodbye’ tomorrow to all our wonderful Year 6 pupils as they move off to their secondary schools. It has been a huge privilege to watch them grow and develop during their time at St Winifred’s. Although we will really miss all our Year 6 pupils, we are very proud of them and also excited for them as they begin the next part of their journey. We hope they will come back and tell us all about their wonderful achievements.

We are also saying ‘good bye’ today to some our families who have been a huge part of our school community for many, many years. We would like to thank them for all that they have done to support our school and wish them great happiness in the future. Please do keep in touch and you are always welcome to visit or come along to community events.

We would like to thank you all for your very generous gifts and cards to staff and lovely feedback.

Message from the Friends

🎉📢🌟🍾   FAMILY FUN DAY 2019 🍾🌟📢🎉

First of all, we must say THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make this Family Fun Day such a success again this year! A special thanks to all our volunteers who went over and above to support us. So many of you came early, left late, helped out at other stalls and just generally pitched in where you were needed and we can’t thank you enough! We also need to thank our local business partners who donated, supported and sponsored this event. In particular, our long standing and generous sponsors, Peter James Estate Agents who ran the “perfect day” competition.
We should also mention our silent partners – the staff in the office that took in donations and slips for us, the grounds staff who helped with planning, set up and set down , Miss Hanrahan for making herself and all the facilities (and her car!) available to us and to all the staff who supported us and volunteered. We had a record number of staff manning stalls this year!
This year we had 26 stalls and 81 volunteers covering more than 150 shifts! We had 5-a-side, hook a duck, bouncy castle, flushed away, the buzzer game, tombola, raffle, glitter tattoos and face painting to name a few. You ate 150 hot dogs, over 200 burgers and 120 of Van’s kebabs. You also drank more than 5 litres of Pimms and 117 bottles of beer! We had over 80 metres of bunting, 15 recycling bins and 97 signs. Margaret had 143 balloons in her car (and a few stragglers left in her office). We gave out 450 prizes and 250 lollies and we waved about 300 people though the gates!
But the most important number of all……….. we raised an amazing……………………….. £6,301!!!

So, all that remains is for us to say THANK YOU for supporting your school and  we hope you have a wonderful summer break. We’ll see you again in September!
