Welcome to Costessey Junior School

PTA

Fashion Show

Over the half term the PTA held a fashion show at Queen’s Hills Community Centre.  There was a fantastic turn out, and the atmosphere on the night was wonderful.  We held a raffle and had some really great stalls from local businesses selling some lovely gifts for Christmas.  It was a great success and raised £619. Would like to thank all those that came along and supported the event. We hope you enjoy your purchases.


Our Grand Summer Fete!

What a wonderful time we all had!  Today was the summer fete. We had dance displays, a bouncy castle and slide and a climbing wall.  There was plenty to eat with a BBQ, ice cream and cakes on sale.  We had lots of different games and activities to go on, including the chance to soak our teachers which was great!

There was an amazing raffle with fantastic prizes as well as 2 tombola stands and the most wonderful cakes for our ‘Great Costessey Bake off’.

Lots of local small businesses came to support us as well as the police and fire services, who kept setting off their alarms!

It was a fantastic team effort from our PTA, staff and children working together to make it such a success.  We would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Chapman, Mrs Casey-Buckland and Mrs Miller who really went above and beyond to make things happen.

 


Quiz and Chips

Your new PTA launched this half term with a fantastic evening of Quiz and Chips.  It was very well attended and got quite competitive!!  We would like to thank Mr Coulter for being Quiz master and controlling proceedings brilliantly. The evening raised over £300 for the PTA and gives us a great start to our fund raising efforts.

The next event will be a combined Summer Fete held at Costessey Junior School so please keep an eye out for dates and how you can get involved.  If you have any ideas for this or any other event please contact the PTA through either school or put a suggestion in our new suggestion boxes in the reception areas.

The PTA Has Launched!

At Costessey Junior School we are always looking at ways to improve learning for the children.  We know that working closely with families can have a huge affect on children’s progress in school.  We are in the process of setting up a Parent and Teacher Association to strengthen this link between home and school.  If you would like any information about it or would like to get involved, please contact the school office.

Also please come back and visit this page again soon for more information about the PTA and to find out about future events.
