Friends of Finchale once again gave us a day to remember on Thursday 29th March 2018 by providing the prizes for our Egg Decorating Competition and putting on an amazing Egg Hunt. Every child in school participated in the search for eggs and had huge fun! They all received a treat as an entrant or winner. Thank you to all of the parents who came along and ran the event.
The raffle in aid of St Oswald's Hospice raised £98.35 - THANK YOU!
Congratulations to the winner Mrs Carol Kelly (Grandma of Tom in Year 1).
Christmas Fair and Raffle 2017
Raised a fantastic £880
Well done and thanks to all involved!
Friends, family and our local community joined us for a very special morning organised by Kevin Mason and the PTA. We received a fantastic selection and quantity of cakes, most were homemade and all were very generously donated by pupils, their families and staff. There were enough delicious cakes for all of the children to enjoy one too!
Help came from the PTA and SWAG (School Worldwide Awareness Group). Our guests were also delighted to be entertained by Andrew on the piano so a huge thank you to him for giving up his time to play for us. We raised £271.45 for this very worthy cause.
Thank you to all for your support and generosity.
