PaFoS Newsletter - March 2018

Parents and Friends of Shaw (PaFoS) is Shaw Primary School’s PTA and our main aim, as well as helping the children and parents to have lots of fun, is to raise valuable funds for our school.

Our current focus is to raise vital and important funds towards a complete ‘School Library Refurbishment’, a transformation of the space! It’s not long until the designs will be unveiled.

2018 has got off to a brilliant start for PaFoS and the events held so far have been a great success. We really appreciate your support, thank you!

The Disco in February raised over £400. Thank you to those who volunteered their time on the night which included parents and school staff. It was a hectic night – and not just on the dance floor! Tuck shop mania and jugs and jugs of squash consumed!

The Quiz Night raised just over £650, with lots of fun had by all! This came down to the generosity of so many people…. At the heart of the event, the Quizmasters Kerry and Bernie Vevers, who gave up their time and did a fantastic job! Prizes were donated by ‘Octavian’ and ‘Lick the Spoon Chocolates’. Thank you to Jimmy from Lee’s Chinese Melksham, Il Vello D’Oro, and raffle donations from Leekes, Coop Corsham, Vivien J Bridal Accessories, Daisy Chain Floral Designers and bonus hamper (Naomi Scane & PaFoS).


We look forward to seeing amazing entries in the Great Shaw Easter Cake Competition 2018. Equally, we are very happy to receive cake donations for the cake sale.

We have many more events lined up and it’s not long now until ‘Dress Down Day Friday’ and the ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’!

The PaFoS team are really appreciative of the additional help we get from Parents/Carers (known as PAL’s). PAL’s are parents/carers who assist us at PaFoS events when they can spare the time. It doesn’t have to be at every event! If you would like to be a PAL of PaFoS please let us know! Email (pafos@live.co.uk), FB message or speak directly to a member of the Team. Please don’t forget about the fantastic online shopping initiative, which has so far raised over £200 for the school!

A special mention to ‘Octavian’ who donated an additional £250 towards the library refurbishment as well as wine for the winners of the Quiz.
