A warm welcome to all our new starters and welcome back to everyone else! We hope you had a lovely Summer and wish you a happy start to the new academic year.
Each year we support Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning. This year it's on 26 September. There will also be a second-hand uniform sale, proceeds of which go to The Friends. To make this a success we need as many of you as possible to bring in donations of cakes and to come along on the day. If you can't come along or bring a cake, a financial donation will be welcome.
If you're interested in getting involved with The Friends of West Jesmond, a date will be announced soon for our AGM. Please feel welcome to come along and meet other interested parents. You are also welcome to put yourself forward for one of the committee roles, eg. Chair, Secretary, Treasurer etc. We're also looking for more parents to join our Marketing Subcommittee which, as the name suggests, helps to organise Friends events etc.
And finally... you might be aware that West Jesmond has the most amazing tradition of making a selling cakes to raise money for each class. This is known as The Friday Cake Stall. This year, to encourage the baking and buying of even more fabulous cakes, the class that raises the most money with their cake stall will get afternoon tea provided by The Friends at the end of the academic year. Happy baking!
[Did someone just say "cake"?]
