As the school year comes to a close, I’d like to say a huge thank you to our parents, teachers and children for all your support both during the lockdown and well before that from September 2019. It’s hard to thank every individual, so here are a few groups who deserve a special mention.
To the Year 6 parents who are leaving Fielding - many thanks for your support over the years. We have achieved a huge amount in the time your children have been at the school and we'd love to welcome you back at a more ‘social time’ for a proper leaving event. To the class reps - many thanks for your continued help in coordinating and communicating with parents across the school and making all our work possible. And finally to the core PTFA team who delivered some great events this year but who also remained dedicated to our cause even in these uncertain times.
Although our fundraising efforts were curtailed earlier than expected, we have still managed to raise nearly £26,000 - which is impressive considering our biggest fundraising efforts are normally in May and June - thank you all for your support.
While the fluidity of the situation makes it difficult to plan for next year, we look forward to welcoming many of you back in September and if health and safety permits, to bring some groups together. More news in the next academic year.
For now, I hope you manage to find some relaxation over the summer months wherever that may be.
Nolan O'Connor, PTFA Chair.
