February 2019

Thanks to all the parents who came along to support the Quiz last week – what a brilliant night – we raised just over £800.00 for the school IT project (details to be published soon but all very exciting) 

The Quiz was won by Mums on the Run for the second year running and with very close runners up The Born Losers who are due a name change for the next one. 

We had so much fun we hope to do another one this year sometime so keep those brains ready!! 

Huge congratulations and thanks to Lindsey Hay who ran the Worthing Half Marathon in aid of Swiss Gardens PTA last Sunday -she ran the course in a personal record 2:05:50 hours and raised £515.00 for the school – well done Lindsey and all of you who sponsored her. 

On the 5th March we will be running the Swiss Gardens 5K Pancake Flip at school. Details and Sponsorship information will come out in book bags on the last day of this half term so look out for them and get involved with friends and family sponsoring your little ones to flip 10 pancakes each , 20 each for Year 6 and make the 5K flips possible. 

We are currently looking into installing playground sail shelters ready for summer and extending the climbing wall. 

You may have heard Zoe Ball on Radio 2 bigging up the Epic Swiss Gardens Clubbing for Parents night recently (really!!) – it’s inspired us to do another one soon so please keep 22nd March free for another night of raving at the Yacht Club – same format, same DJ’s, much more extra stuff and Zoe Ball has asked us to invite her so get your tickets quick when they come out. 

Finally don’t forget Tesco Bags for Help in March – save those tokens and be ready !to help Swiss Gardens get either 1, 2 or 4K to develop the pond area in Mary’s Garden in to sensory and quiet garden! 

Please check your emails for any projects we are seeking approval for and do get in touch on swissgardenspta@gmail.com with any queries or ideas. 

Exciting times and thanks as ever to you all for support. 
Melita, Jac, Sam and Chloe.
