The mission of Friends of Wymondley is to raise additional funding which can be used to enhance every child’s school experience.
Everyone is welcome to join the team - parents, grandparents, carers and anyone keen to enhance the school lives of the children attending the school.
Below you will find the latest minutes and newsletter.
❄️⛄Friends of Wymondley Festive Activity Update❄️⛄
December is almost here and we wanted to update you about some of the fun activities we have got coming up alongside those already happening at school.
🎄 Non-uniform day - Decorations Day 1st Dec - chocolate donations
This Decorations Day we would like to invite the children to take part in a non uniform day in return for a chocolate donation.
Donations can be any shape or size - from selection boxes and share bags to bars or boxes - just no nuts please!
Donations will all go into our Chocolate Tombola at the Christmas Fair.
Bring your donations in on Friday 1st.
🎅 Christmas Fair Update
We are looking forward to our first Christmas Fair since 2019! The Fair will take place after school in the hall on Friday 8th Dec (3.30pm - 5.30pm).
All children will have come home with a festive update letter today with more details (please see attached) about the Fair.
🤶 Christmas Raffle
You will also have received with your Fair Update a couple of books of raffle tickets for our festive raffle. Tickets are 50p each or £2.50 for a book. There is no obligation to buy, just send back any unwanted tickets, but hopefully you will be tempted by some of our fab prizes including a stay in a Premier Inn, an Echo dot and meals at some of our lovely local pubs and restaurants. For full details of prizes see our Facebook or Instagram page.
Please send money and completed stubs back to school by Monday 11th Dec, the draw will take place on 15th Dec. Don't forget you can sell tickets to family, friends and colleagues and if you need more tickets please ask!
🎁Secret Santa - deadline for ordering is Fri 8th Dec
Our annual Secret Santa gift service is back! You can purchase from male, female or unisex gifts for your children to gift to family and loved ones from our selection of gifts. Gifts are £3.50 each and children will come in on 15th Dec to select gifts and write/ decorate labels for family members and bring home to place under the tree (hopefully they can keep what's inside a secret!). Book your gift on www.pta-events.co.uk/friends-of-wymondley by Friday 8th Dec.
In addition to supporting our events and activities there are a number of additional ways you can help raise funds for the school through everyday activities and purchases. Here are some of the ways how:
Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for Wymondley JMI School with easyfundraising?
There are over 6,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.
All you need to do is:
1. Go to the dedicated easyfundraising page and join for free.
2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.
3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Wymondley JMI School PTA - Little Wymondley at no extra cost to you whatsoever!
There are no catches or hidden charges and the FOW will be really grateful for your donations.
You can also earn the school money when you buy name label items from either Stamptastic or MyNameTags. The details are below:
Stamptastic - Use this link to order and earn 15% Commission for school, use the special link and then enter code: SG47HN at the checkout
MyNameTags - Go to www.MyNametags.com - once you have chosen your items, at the bottom of the basket, select the option for School fundraising and ENTER 18789. The school earns 24% from every purchase!
