Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Queen’s Park Academy Association AGM will now be held next Monday, 8th October. This parent and teacher group supports the school immensely and has enabled developments to resources and facilities that would not have been possible without its amazing work.
This year we are looking to expand the group and warmly welcome new members to join. We are able to facilitate childcare for next Monday for the duration of the meeting.
Our Summer Fair will be held this Saturday, 7th July from 11-2. We are allowing pupils to come to school tomorrow in Mufti in return for a donation:
Year 3 – sweet jars
Year 4 – sweet jars / sweet packets
Year 5 – bottles
Year 6 – cakes
We look forward to a fantastic event!
Congratulations to our Year 6 pupil who won the competition to design a programme cover for the Summer Fair. Fantastic work which will be rewarded with a cinema voucher courtesy of the PTA!
Please come and support us at the Summer Fair on 7th July! If anyone is able to offer support in the running of a stall or to hand out refreshments then we would really appreciate your time; please let us know at the office or over the phone.
There are lots of signs of new life in the QPA garden! Mrs Moore and Mrs Robertson are hard at work with their teams growing both flowers and vegetables. Edible produce will be making its way to the kitchen for Mrs Powell to use during cookery classes, once ready. The new shed is also now being used every day – our thanks go to our wonderful PTA for their financial support to enable its purchase.
The hampers have now been prepared and are ready for Monday’s draws. It is not too late to get your tickets to win! Many thanks to the PTA for their creativity and time and to all of our school community for their support.
We have now launched our QPA Reading Bingo challenge. Pupils have to read one book from every category to win a special prize:
- Science Fiction and Fantasy
- Action and Adventure
Pupils in Years 3 and 5 have hundreds of new books in their year groups to enjoy. Years 4 and 6 will be visiting the library to select their choices in order to complete their cards. We are hugely grateful to the PTA for their huge donations towards this scheme – the buzz about reading at QPA is electrifying!
