IN-SCHOOL SUPPORT: Thank you, sprucers

A big thank you to those that helped in this year's spruce-up before the start of the new school year. 

We stained, swept, painted, pruned and weeded like champions - and the school looks that little bit better for it.

Thank you (in no particular order) to Andrea, Steve, Maria, Adrian, Louise, Elliot, Rebecca, Georgia, Dave, Phil, Jon, Jo and Linda - and Alan Davies (Assistant Head and SISA link).

If you'd like to take part in future spruce-ups, just register your interest on the following form or email sisa@stivoschool.org. We'd be delighted to see you.

SOCIAL: Quiz Night - 6th May



 
 
 

Please come along to the next SISA event: Quiz Night on the 6th May.
We are hoping to raise £220 for the Physics Department:
"The laser is used for the Young's slit practical and for the diffraction of light when showing wave particle duality for the new physics A-level.  It is also used to demonstrate total internal reflection in KS3 " - Ed Slingsby Head of Science.
It would be great if we could raise this money from one event - please book via parentmail (last page fourth item from the bottom).

SISA AGM: Wednesday 27/04/2016 at 7PM

The SISA (St Ivo School Association) Annual General Meeting  will be taking place on Wednesday 27th April at 7pm in the Understudy at the school, including a short presentation and some light refreshments.
This group is our PTA and is hugely important as part of the drive to increase parental engagement with the school, so please make every effort to attend. We will be sharing all the exciting work SISA has been doing since it was established in 2015.
We will also be electing the committee positions of
·         Chair
·         Vice Chair
·         Treasurer
·         Secretary
·         Website & Social Media co-ordinator
·         Vice Chair – Parent Forum
·         Vice Chair – Events
·         Vice Chair – In School Support
If you feel you would like to stand for one of these positions, please email sisa@stivoschool.org – or there will be the opportunity to stand on the night. We will be giving more information about these three subcommittees and there will be the opportunity to sign up to support one of these groups.
There will however, be no requirement to be involved in the committee – and your support, even if you can only spare the odd hour each year, would be very greatly appreciated – or just come along to find out more.
We hope to see you there.

IN-SCHOOL SUPPORT: Painting goes indoors

Having proved their painting skills on the outside of the school in the summer, the SISA team took on the challenge of the music/adult learning corridor at the end of November. And lo, mid-blue became fresh cream. Well done to the team!

Watch out for more opportunities to help out at the school - and meet other parents at the same time - in 2016.

In the meantime, on behalf of the In-School Team, thank you to everyone for their support this year and have a very merry and peaceful Christmas.

We had an interesting and informative night at the SISA Wine Tasting event on 20th November.

Thanks to the Smiling Grape Co for a talk through a variety of wines and a lesson in how to "slurp" and appreciate the bouquet, colour and "legs" !

Thanks to all who came along and made the night a great success.
