Upcoming Events

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

The PTFA are pleased to announce this year they will be holding a raffle for the chance to win three wonderful Christmas hampers! 

The Christmas hampers have been very popular in previous years and have been a fun way to raise funds for the school. 

Events such as these support our school in purchasing additional resources and equipment and helps to fund trips and activities that are outside of the school budget.

 

Raffle:

Books of raffle tickets will be sent home with each family on the 3rd December (mufti day).

If you would like a chance to win 1st prize (Large Hamper), 2nd prize (medium hamper) or 3rd prize (small hamper) please fill out the counterfoil of the raffle ticket and return it to school with your money (cash only, in a sealed envelope) by Friday 10th December.

The winner will be announced at the School Carol Concert on Tuesday 14th December.

Hampers to be collected from the school office.

 

Mufti Day:

In order for the raffle to be a success the PTFA is holding a mufti-day for the children on the 3rd December.

There is no theme to this mufti-day, but an opportunity for children to wear what they would like!

In return for wearing mufti we kindly ask the following:

 

Juniors to donate £1

Infants to donate an item for the hampers (please see below for guidance on items to donate).

 

Wagtails: Chocolates

Pipits: Sweet Treats

Robins: Savouries

Goldfinches: Drinks

Puffins: Jars

Kingfishers: Toiletries

 

Please no perishable items.

 

Thank you for supporting the school.

 

 

 

Further information from the PTFA of easy ways we can work together to raise funds for the school:

 

The PTFA have worked hard to create several easy ways to raise additional funds for the school for our children to benefit from. 

Below is a summary of ways you can help without having to commit time or money to a specific event.

 

Easy Fundraising:

Easy Fundraising is simply that! All you do is shop online as normal and the retailer will automatically send a percentage of your purchase to the school.  

Don't worry, the school won't know what you bought! 

How to activate Easy Fundraising? Go to their website and search for 'King Ina C of E Academy Parents, Teachers and Friends Association'.  You sign up with a name and email address and then just carry on with shopping as you normally would.  

Once signed up you will be asked if you would like to download a pop-up reminder that you click on (when you visit eligible retailers) if you'd like Easy Fundraising to send a percentage of what you spend to the school.

There are over 6,000 retailers who have signed up to give free donations. Retailers include Argos, TU, Etsy, Ebay, John Lewis, Amazon, Marks & Spencer, Screwfix, Just Eat, Mulberry and many, many other popular brands.

If you don't want to download the pop-up you can visit the Easy Fundraising page and search the retailer and click on their link to activate the fundraising.

 

You shop. King Ina C of E Academy Parents, Teachers and Friends Association gets money. For free.

 

School lottery:

Your School Lottery

 

Each school runs its own lottery so you know that funds raised go to your local school and prizes given out go into your local community.

It is £1 per ticket and the draw is every Saturday.  Every week a ticket from King Ina will win, and the more tickets purchased, the bigger the win. 

In addition to the school draw you automatically get entered into the National School draw which is a grand prize of £25,000!

On top of that, Your School Lottery has termly prize bundles, of which the current one is 'Win Christmas'.  The Mega Prize Bundle contains a huge food hamper, luxury artificial Christmas tree, festive wreath, stockings, lights, baubles, table decorations, bubbly, chocolate and many more seasonal goodies. 

Just search 'King Ina C of E Academy' on the Your School Lottery website.

 

Amazon Smile:

Do you shop on Amazon? Are you aware of Amazon Smile?

Amazon Smile is exactly the same as amazon, except the AmazonSmile foundation will donate a percentage of your eligible purchases to your selected charity.

You keep your normal Amazon account, even the items in your basket and wish lists are the same but you just add 'smile.' into your web browser before 'amazon.co.uk' = smile.amazon.co.uk 

Select 'King Ina C of E Academy Parents Teachers and Friends Association' and Amazon will do the rest! That's it.  It really is that easy!

 

 

 

Parentkind The Big PTFA Christmas Raffle:

The Big PTA Christmas Raffle

 

This year you can enter into the Big PTA Christmas Raffle.  There are 12 draws each with £5,000 to win and it is only £3 to get entry into all 12 draws!  Plus, the more tickets you buy, the greater the chance of winning!
