As in previous years the PTA will be preparing supper for the evening and rely on generous donations from parents and caregivers (of all year groups, not just those attending the Ball) to make an amazing supper possible. Any home-made sweets such as coconut ice, fudge, truffles or slices would be greatly appreciated.
Baking can be dropped off to Reception on Friday 27th July or to the Library on the afternoon of Saturday 28th July. The PTA are also grateful for any volunteers willing to help out on Saturday, either by helping with food preparation Saturday afternoon or during the Ball on Saturday night.
