On Tuesday 26th November we are hosting a non-uniform day for all the children at school. In return we'd really love some donations of items for our Christmas Fair Tombola. You did us proud for the Summer Fair Tombola... What can we rustle up this year?!
If you can donate a Christmassy item that children or adults would like to win please send it in with your child on that day. It will help massively with our fundraising for the school.
Things like...a bag of chocolate coins, unopened smellies, bottles of something nice, a new pair of socks, Christmas decorations, singing reindeer, scarves or hats, candy canes, christmassy biscuits, crackers... Or anything else that screams Christmas at you that you'd be willing to donate! Small or big we are grateful for your donations.
The Pontprennau Christmas Festival
... Santa, a Christmas Fair and your Christmas lights!
Have you've got the afternoon of Sunday 1st December booked out for Christmas to start in Pontprennau?!
Santa will be kicking off the afternoon by travelling the streets of Pontprennau from 4pm (route will be advertised soon) in his very own Pontprennau Christmas Sleigh built with kind donations from you, our local community. Santa will be sponsored this year by local estate agents Hogg & Hogg! Big thanks to them for their donation.
Then, join us at the school anytime from 4pm - 8pm for a fabulous Christmas fair open to all our community! There will be children's rides outside and crafts and games (from Splat the Sprout and Christmas Tin Can Alley to making your own Reindeer food) inside. Lots of fun, prizes and christmassy spirit on offer!
We will have warm drinks, warming drinks 😉, Christmassy snacks and a food van too. Inside there will also be local businesses selling lovely Christmas things and it will all be topped off with Christmas songs from the choir!
Santa will be at the school after his trip around the streets handing out oranges donated by our local community before he heads back to the North Pole for a very busy December!
We'd love this to become an annual event and have it as the day all of us in Pontprennau switch on the Christmas lights on our own houses ... Who's up for it? Let's make Pontprennau shine this Christmas!
We all know Santa is coming to Pontprennau on 1st December... But who is going to get a letter from him?!
Once again we are offering you the opportunity to purchase special stamps to send a letter to Santa. In return your child(ren) will receive a fabulous personalised letter (you can make it entirely personal to your child) and an exclusive Nice List Certificate that you can't get via any online offer. And you'll be supporting the school too a FoPPS gets a bit of money back for every stamp sold!
Each stamp costs £2.50. Your child writes their own letter to Santa, you post it in the letter box in school reception and then you get the fun part of personalising the letter they will get in return online... You can choose the letter design, facts that only they would know, best friends etc.
So, how do you get your hands on one of these exclusive stamps? Pop into school reception and pick up a form or email/message us on here and we can send you one. Fill it in with your details and pop it into a sealed envelope with the correct money (we can't provide change). Drop this envelope to the school office or to any member of FoPPS and we will send you back a stamp and instruction leaflet sealed inside an envelope via your child in class.
Once you have your stamp all your child needs to do is write their letter and post it in the special postbox in reception. You can then do the magic bit of choosing the letter and it's personalisation online so that it can be sent to you...easy and magical!
