Summer Fayre – 3rd June 10-12

The summer fayre is fast approaching.

Raffle tickets – If you would like to purchase raffle tickets please hand back the tickets and money to school.  There are raffle tickets at reception if you would like to buy more.

Tombola’s – We are still looking for donations for the tombola stalls.  There will be both an adults tombola and kids tombola, if you have any donations please hand them into the office.

Magicians Show – There are a few tickets remaining.  They will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  To purchase tickets please hand your money into the school before Wednesday.  After this we wont be able to issue any further tickets.  If there are tickets remaining these will be available on the day.

Home bakes – In true bake off style, we are looking for donations of home bakes.  Due to the high quality of bakers at the school 🙂 it is normally a very popular stall.  If you are able to make some home bakes, please include the ingredients on them and hand into the office on Friday.

The PTA would like to express our thanks for all your support in the lead up to the fayre.  We are getting excited!!  There will be lots to do including a bouncy castle (£2 unlimited), beat the goalie, coconut shy, hook a duck, magician shows, adopt a pet, splat a rat, glitter tattoos, lucky dip as well as strawberries and cream and hot dogs!!  The children have also been very busy drawing a self portrait  which has been printed onto tea towels.  These will be for sale at the fayre.  They are looking amazing, the kids have done an amazing job!

Lets hope we get another smashing sunny Saturday!

Hope to see you there

Dress as you please day – Thursday 17th November

Thursday 17th November  will be  ‘dress as you please’ day to support our Christmas Fayre, which is being held on Saturday 26th November.

The children are asked to either bring a donation for the Tombola (see note below) or £1 if they wish to participate in the dress as you please day.

This year we have decided to do a separate tombola for children and adults, therefore we are hoping to split donations as follows:

Kid’s Tombola – Donations from NURSERY – P3

Ideas would be NEW toys, games, sweets, bubble bath etc.

Adult Tombola – Donations from P4 – P7

Ideas would be NEW bottles, gifts, chocolates etc.

We also still need as many parents to help with set-up on Friday, working on a stall on Saturday and tidying up afterwards.  Please get in touch via email if you are able to help –

 Many Thanks


Santa’s Coming to Glashieburn!!

At our next meeting we will also discuss events for the LETS already booked.   Suggestions already made have included a Ladies Pamper Evening, a Scottish Night, a Pet Show and a Race Night.




Sample cards have arrived and have gone out to parents with the order forms to be back by 4th Nov. Then we collate the orders and input online. The PTA team will do this. The cards should arrive back within 14 days of us putting in the order.




Nicola to put out a request to the school for donations of Christmas decorations for our Santa’s Grotto.

Members of the PTA will decorate Santa’s Grotto.

Sandie Ewen plus members of the PTA will be wrapping books for Santa to give to the children.

The children will be provided with the book plus a sweet.

Isla Taylor and Emma Combe have offered to be Christmas Elves on this day.

Anne Haggart’s dad has very kindly offered to be Santa with his own suit.





We now have 23 external stalls booked for the fayre.


The main raffle prizes will be as follows:

1st prize – Xbox package

2nd prize – Amazon Fire Stick

3rd prize – £50 voucher for the Mains of Scotstown


Debra Bowie will take charge of the internal stalls including glitter tattoos along with help from Sandie Ewen and Rachael Nicol.


We still need helpers for the catering of the fayre. Emma Cranna has offered to collect our order from Thains Bakery for the Fayre. We have had offers of help for the kitchen from Judith Ross, Esther Walterson and Jane Mitchell. Anne Haggart has offered help in the kitchen but may do a different role at the fayre.

Karen in the school kitchen will need to be advised of the day of the fayre so we can get use of the kitchen.


Claire Swanson will be providing biscuits for Mrs Claus’ kitchen for free and therefore her stall fee has been waived.


Karen Gill has kindly offered to help prepare Reindeer Food for the fayre.


Anne Thompson, Lynne Murray and Emma Combe have offered to do the Tombola at the fayre.   There will be an adult one and a child one.

The PTA will be sending out a letter to ask for donations for the tombola on dress down day. We will ask P1-P3 to provide donations for the children’s tombola and P4-P7 to provide donations for the adult tombola.

Extra sweets etc. will be purchased to go with the tombola as prizes.


We are still looking for a helper for our hot Chocolate to be sold in the hall.   These will be provided at £1 with toppings to choose from.


7000 raffle tickets have been ordered today (28-10-2016) by Audra. Once these arrive a few of the PTA members will divide these up to be put out with the children.


A floor plan of the fayre will be provided.


We still need to sit down and put together a shopping list for the fayre.
