 First half of the autumn term.

We stayed down in the summer camp for the first half of this term and enjoyed our chats, crafts, snacks and end of half term cooking session in the wild part of the woods. Now we have moved camp, up to the top of the woods, for our winter sessions, where music and singing around the fire, warm soup, storytelling, winter crafts and fairy lights in the trees will make this a very different, special time of the year.

Following our PTFA meeting yesterday we have decided to shift our focus to some new fundraising events that are less labour intensive and reliant on volunteers. Please share any ideas for fundraising events (such as a quiz or bingo night) on the Appledore School PTFA facebook page or email admin@ We will discuss all these ideas and plan a new Spring event at the next PTFA meeting on 17th January at 7pm. We are hoping more of you can join us.

Unfortunately we are unable to run a full Xmas Fayre this year due to a lack of volunteers. Instead there will be a Xmas Jolly on 13th December 3 - 5pm with enterprise stalls selling your children's Xmas crafts, refreshments and a visit from Santa. We will ask for your best bakes nearer the time and more details will follow.

Kind Regards The PTFA

A good first day and night was had by all and raring to go again today. 

Having visited the centre last night, I can confirm they are eating well!  After a day on and in the water multiple second helpings were accepted at tea time and thirds were witnessed in not insignificant numbers! Another busy day today and it was clear the children were enjoying their surroundings and spending time with one another.
