PaFoS Newsletter - July 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 focus over the past year has been to fund the major refurbishment of the School Library. The space is transformed and looks amazing!

The children are already making the most of it, not only in dedicated class time but also in lunch breaks.  It is now an inviting place to be and full of colour!

A special mention of thanks must go to Sarah Phillips and Amy Phillips for the hours they are continuing to spend cataloguing the books onto the new library system! Also to anyone else that helped this term, it is a very time consuming job and very much appreciated.

Thank you also to ‘Kennet and Avon Brewery’ who lent the school all the boxes to pack up the library.

To further support the school’s commitment to increasing literacy levels and complete the library improvements, £2000 will be spent on new books in Term 1.  This should certainly contribute to bringing  reading enjoyment levels to a new high for our children!

Now for a recap of the Summer Fete…....

It was a huge success with England’s world cup quarter-final televised in the hall.  The hot weather didn’t seem to deter and over £3300 was raised for the school!

A big thank you to all those who volunteered on the day to help the PaFoS Team, without you the event could not have taken place.




We must highlight the many local businesses who supported the Fete…

Nortree Motors and CPS Construction for their sponsorship!

Box Steam Brewery and E.Billett & Sons for a great deal on beer and plants.

Now, a HUGE THANK YOU to you all……

The PaFoS Team can not raise funds without the support of so many people….parents/carers, grandparents, teachers and staff at the school, and the hard work of the PAL’s of PaFoS. 

We hope you have a fantastic break over the summer holidays, see you all in September!

Thank you, from the PaFoS Team.
