a result of the magnificent support the PTA has received, we will also
be offering a number of items on the night by means of a silent
auction, where you can bid a maximum value for an item.
These will be finalised during the interval break.
order to participate in the auction you will need to buy an official
catalogue for the sum of £1.00 and register your details.
This will give you a unique bidding number which will also be
entered into a free raffle. Catalogues
will be available upon entry but can be purchased from the school
office from Monday, 7, to Friday, 11 April.
Pre-registration, instant bargains and the silent auction will
be available from 5.30 pm, when it will be possible to preview items.
Grand Auction will start at 7.00 pm, and refreshments will be
available throughout the evening.
Please give the school and the PTA all the support
you can. If you do not
wish to bid, then please feel free to come along and buy a bargain;
but please turn up early so as to assist with the registration
