Nearly there…

The new adventure play trail is nearly ready to be reopened following additional work this week. We are now only waiting for one bridge to be installed and new safety bark to be laid before the grand re-opening on Monday 24th June. Many thanks to everyone for their kind donations towards this equipment through the sponsored maths challenge.


Maths Challenge

Our Maths Challenge is well under way, with the children puzzling their way around the bases set. Please can all sponsorship money be brought into school before we close for the half term break, next Friday 24th May. All donations will contribute to the completion of the new adventure play trail.

Reading Game

The QPA reading game commenced today, with many classes taking their first steps onto the board. Prizes will be awarded when classes reach certain points on the board as a result of the reading that they complete during the week. Who will be first to a prize space?

Adventure Play Trail

We are really excited to have begun to install the new Adventure Play Trail. This matches the design selected by the school council, who organised votes in classes to determine which pieces of equipment would be installed.

Although the PTA have done an absolutely fantastic job in raising money to pay for the new equipment, we require one more financial push to get the project completed. We have therefore organised for a sponsored event to be held at school and would really appreciate the support of the community to raise the money required to allow the children back onto an area that they love to play on.


Entrepreneurs of the future

One of our Year 6 pupils decided that the school needed new school sports kit to wear during the Town and County sports events to be held during June. Together with her friend, over £295 has been raised by handcrafting bookmarks and key rings which have been sold at various events. They have also raised money through organising cake sales.

We are really proud of the independence that these pupils have shown and of their hard work and dedication in achieving their aim. Amazing team spirit – well done girls!

Seasonal hampers

The hampers made by the PTA this morning all look wonderful! Many thanks to all of our PTA members for their time and effort to create these prizes and also for their support at the discos yesterday, which continued to be well attended and enjoyed by all.

Tickets are still available for the hampers with the lucky winners being chosen at random on Monday in each class.


The 55 children who performed in the performance of Annie at The Bishop of Winchester Academy represented QPA incredibly well this week. Many thanks to the parents for supporting this collaboration, to the children for their hard work and to Mr Pickett for his leadership of the event.
