Christmas Fair 4 December 2015
What a wonderful Christmas Fair! We were delighted to see so many people enjoying themselves there, and such busy stalls. Thank you to all the shoppers; your purchases support some wonderful activities and enrichments for the children of Higher Lane.
We have been in touch with all the lucky raffle prize winners, including anyone who wasn't at the fair when they were drawn. We are hugely grateful to all the companies who kindly donated such generous prizes, and helped make this a really covetable raffle.
Raffle Prizes and winners for PTA Christmas Fair 2015
The name of the giant polar bear was SPARKLE. Congratulations to Harriett in 1B who correctly guessed this.
Another huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped behind the scenes, and during the fair. Without you, we can't run such fun and successful fairs and events. These raise money to fund a variety of enhancements to Higher Lane, and the more volunteers we have, the more successful the event, the more money we raise, the more, or bigger, projects we can fund. We couldn't do it without you. Thank you!
Thank you to everyone who brought from the refreshment stall at the shows this week, and thank you to the volunteers running it. A big thank you of course to all the children and staff who provided such wonderful entertainment.
Halloween Disco - 21 October 2015
Halloween came slightly early to Higher Lane, with the Halloween Parties on Wednesday 21St October. There were some wonderful costumes and creative face paint, and it is definitely worth having a look at our Facebook page and the school Twitter account (@higher_lane) to see some of the photographs of the night.
Fashion Show - 24 September 2015
We wanted to start the new school year with a big event, and they don't get much bigger than sold out!
You may have spotted our refreshment stall at various events, most recently at the sports days. These are one of the small ongoing ways that we generate funding for the school. If you have bought from one of these over the year, thank you. Many thanks too, to the volunteers who run these stalls and keep us refreshed.
We hope that the new reception starters who visited this week had a lovely time and enjoyed their welcome cupcake, with Higher Lane design, made for us by Quirky Notions.
Leavers' Party tickets are selling fast! If you are year six and haven't got your ticket yet, be quick! Tuesday 14th July is the last day to buy them.
Next Friday, 17th July, is the last tuck shop of this school year. £1 for a drink and snack as a last day treat.
NOTE FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR Thursday 24th September we are holding a fashion show. The last one was a sell out event. Tickets will be on sale the first day back.
We have some great photos, including the Higher Lane cupcakes, on our Facebook page.
Sponsored Scoot - 8 and 9 June 2015
What great weather we had for the Sponsored Scoot! And what fantastic scooting! There was a great atmosphere for all the races with lots of supportive cheering, applause, and music. Congratulations to Miss Cheetham and Mr Dolan who won the teacher's races. We were very impressed by all the children who so adeptly managed the ramps and see-saw ramps. Well done all! Thank you to Scooters the Race who provided the equipment and thank you to the school for hosting the races. There are some photographs and videos of the event on the school Twitter account (@higher_lane) and our Facebook page (http://tinyurl.com/qhz4m7x).
We are delighted to announce that the final total for the sponsored scoot is an amazing £3000!! A huge thank you to all the kind sponsors of our talented scooter riders; you have enabled the purchase of picnic benches for both playgrounds. Don't worry if you haven't returned your sponsor money yet; please bring it in as soon as possible and it will go towards funding some more great extras for the children.

A massive thank you to everyone who came to the Bunny Hop Night - we all had a great night - Check out our FB page to see pic from the night!
