DSCN0280[1]Thank you to everyone who contributed to last night’s great success, Jim played to a packed hall and your generosity in buying tickets or making donations has meant that last night’s event has paid for our new projector and remote controlled screen for the Assembly Hall!!! To be able to tick off one of the bigger items on our shopping list is a great feeling and the projector should be in place the first week in July so in plenty of time for the beginning of the next school year!

A special word of thanks to past pupil and parent, Fiona Larkin, whose idea and contacts got the event for St. Mary’s! Also thanks to all the parents and staff on the I.C.T fund raising team who contribute their time and energy to the cause, it couldn’t happen without you!!

Thanks also to Silverbridge G.F.C, a great team of workers on the night ensured that all went smoothly. We greatly appreciate the  support and help given and look forward to working with you again in October for, “Strictly back to School”!!!!

We are waiting on the Capita engineers to call to advise on other equipment/purchases but as soon as they have sorted a few technical problems we have been experiencing  we will be shopping for other items on the list!!! We will keep you posted…
