Coffee morning and cake sale

Macmillan Coffee Morning and Cake Sale
Bushy Hill Junior School
Friday 25th September 2015

In support of the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, we would like to welcome you to a coffee morning at the school on Friday 25th September 8.40am to 10am.  This will be held in the gym.

There will also be a cake sale for all the children during (an extended) breaktime tomorrow.  The teachers will be busy baking cakes to help raise money for Macmillan and we would be grateful if you could provide your child with some money (suggested donation of 50p) for this cake sale.

We realise this is a national event, so please do not feel obligated to donate if you are already contributing or hosting an event.  We are looking forward to welcoming you at the coffee morning.

Thank you for your support.

Just to remind you of tomorrow evening's FAB event - AGM at 7pm in the hall. 


That's diarrhoea backwards!! Just one of the words our children were spelling today after Sir Linkalot taught us some great tricks to use when learning!

Great fun was had by all and we all learnt something new. It was lovely to hear all the children, no matter what age or ability, spelling some very tricky words - I hope they've tested you!!

Thank you to all the parents who attended the sessions, I hope you enjoyed it!!

Reminder - Thinkalink! It's a fun and easy way to remember things.

Just to remind you that tomorrow (Wednesday) Andy Salmon (aka Sir Linkalot) from Thinkalink will be spending a day at the school to introduce all the children and teachers to the world of 'Linking' - a fun and easy way to remember any fact, whether it be the spelling of a tricky word, a Times Table or Maths formula, an Historical Date/Event, a Geographical location, a Science process or the meaning of a word whether it be English or French or another language.
You are invited to watch your child's/children's session so you can pick up some extremely handy and innovative tips and tricks which you'll be able to implement at home. 
For those that can't make it throughout the day, there will be a 40 minute after-school parents presentation which you are also invited to (your children are welcome to attend). Please see attached the invitation which includes the timings for the day.
The British Dyslexia Association thinks his spelling technique 'Letter Linking' is groundbreaking. 
 If you can make it, then you are in for a treat!

As you may know we have an easy way to raise some funds for our school through recycling used ink cartridges. ‘Empties Please’ recycle used ink cartridges the environmentally friendly way and donate the money raised back to us. We have raised over £135 so far!

It’s very simple - pop your used ink cartridges into the supplied bag your child will bring home, seal and put in our white recycle bin by the office.

They pay 75p for an ‘Original branded’ ink cartridge, 25p for a ‘Remanufactured’ ink cartridge. They accept these brands:
HP (EXCEPT 363, 364, 88, 920, 932, 933, 940, 10, 11, 13 and 14)
Canon that are labelled – PG37, PG40, PG50, PG510, PG512, PG540, PG545, CL37, CL38, CL41, CL51, CL52, CL511, CL51, CL541 and CL546

You can collect ink cartridges from absolutely anywhere; school, work, home, clubs, friends and family.

Friends Association of Bushy / PTA AGM

Friends Association of Bushy / PTA AGM
Thursday 24th September 7pm at the School

Just a friendly reminder that it's the FAB AGM next week, which will be followed by the first planning meeting of this academic year.  Please feel free to join all or part of the meeting. We are fortunate that many of our supporters and reps from last year are willing to continue helping again this year, however as everyone is so busy there have been requests to share more of the roles and responsibilities. It would be great to see some new faces and receive any new ideas for events.
So if you are willing to spare some time getting involved in FAB, whether taking on a class rep role or helping with an event, it is a great way to contribute to the school community and to meet with other parents.
If you cannot make the meeting but can contribute or would like to be more involved please let me know, as all time and help is appreciated.

Looking forward to seeing you at our meeting on the 24th
Best regards
Jo Rowland
Chair of FAB
