70th Anniversary Celebrations
Colston's Primary Celebrating 70 years: 1947/48 - 2017/18
How can you be involved in the creation of a year of celebratory activities?
It would be so lovely to populate our school calendar with a plethara of anniversary events and activities in celebration of the school's birthday year, and to hopefully leave some permanent anniversary legacies around the school - how about a time capsule?
How can parents and carers be involved? Anything goes - if you have an idea you'd like to pursue, small or large, please do be in touch.
Do you have any of the following skills? Design, website, historical research, curatorial?
Do you know alumni we can be in touch with? Are you yourself alumni?
Anniversary arts projects - music, art, film, dance, Science projects - could we hook up with We the Curious?, Sports projects - anniversary olympics? Would you like to be involved in projects under any of these umbrella areas? Do you have any ideas of your own?
70th Anniversary Fundraising Appeal - Surely we should try and reward ourselves with some birthday funds ... An appeal with a 'case for support' linked directly to our school development plan to improve outcomes for our children is being drawn up with the aim of launching in Term 2.
We will be appealing to individuals, trusts and foundations, and local businesses for support. Is there anybody out there who is interested in being involved at at this stage? Do you have crowdfunding experience (Playground development so ripe for this)? If so, please contact Kate Swainson Price on email@example.com or via the office on firstname.lastname@example.org
PTAF fundraising events - do you have any brilliant ideas for anniversary fundraising events? The PTAF will be running its usual calendar of events but this year it would be great to have something extra special - think of it as a bit of a birthday fund! Please contact the PTAF Chair, Maija Lawrence, or Vice Chair, Juliet Holder, with your ideas, via the office on email@example.com.
If you are interested in being involved in any of the above please contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance. And sooner rather than later. If we are to get projects off the ground we need to get going ...
We look forward to hearing from you.
Look out for co-op meetings where there will be opportunities to find out more.
