MacMillan Coffee Morning Raises £700
Our MacMillan Coffee Morning which was held on Saturday, 24 September raised nearly £700 simply from parents and staff eating cake, drinking tea and chatting to chums. In addition the school very kindly donated the collection from the New Parents' Chapel Service taking us to over £800.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to all of those who came along and donated so generously to this worthy cause. We must thank those who spent hours in the kitchen slaving away over a hot oven baking some really scrummy masterpieces worthy of Mary Berry's praise. Lastly we would also like to thank all of you who helped set up, sell and clear away .... no mean feat in itself.
Well what a night we had when Bollywood relocated to Windsor Road. Flash mobbed by Bhangra dancers, tastebuds tickled by wonderful Indian cuisine (all washed down with the odd Kingfisher or two) followed by a night dancing to the latest sounds from Mumbai's hottest nightclubs. We also learnt to 'Jai Ho' like Nicole Scherzinger ... in fact many would say we out Jai Ho'd her.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along ... you certainly entered into the spirit of the evening with the wonderful outfits you all wore and of course a massive thank you to those who made the evening possible ... the party planners, the catering team and of course our housekeeping crew.
So that's it for another year .... we have a few months to think about the next theme. Any ideas you may have please email email@example.com because we really do not know how we're going to top Bollywood!
Namaste and keep Jai Ho-ing!
Lent Term 2017
As Lent is a very short term we have mixed up the calendar this year and PoP will be taking a break while it prepares for the Summer Term.
Summer Term 2017
Yes it may seem like a long way off, but experience shows that the Summer Term will be here in the blink of an eye.
Hog Roast and Country Fair
The ever popular Hog Roast will be back with our famous Welly Wanging, Jam and Chutney Stall and the inflatables to name but a few of the attractions. The big question is ..... can the staff redeem themselves this time and win the Dads vs Staff Tug 'o' War? We know who our money is on!
The annual Summer Ball will be held on Thursday, 6 July. The most formal of our events, this black tie evening will see us being entertained yet again by local megaband !Daft! who had us dancing into the small hours last year. For those of you who attended in July 2016 you will remember what a great evening was had by all and for those of you who have not been to the Papplewick Summer Ball before, we can promise you a great time.
