Make Time for Tea!

We are hosting a fabulous event next weekend on Saturday 30th of April from  11am to 1pm, organised by Mrs Pacitti, our Clerical Assistant. Please come along to help raise money for The Eve Appeal, which works towards protecting women from gynaecological cancers through funding research, and promoting awareness for better detection and risk prediction.

We would like to thank everyone involved in helping this year’s Great Libby Bake Off to be such an incredible success!

We were astounded at the talented children and parents who worked incredibly hard to bake and donate such delicious and attractive cakes, biscuits and goodies.

Our parent volunteers and P6 pupils did a tremendous job with selling the cakes and we were quite overwhelmed by the generosity of all who donated their time and talent.

Congratulations to our winners in the competition:

1st Prize – Craig (P2a)

2nd Prize – Anya (P4b) and Josh (P3b)

3rd Prize – Emily (P7a) and Joe (P6b)

Highly commended certificates were awarded to – Thomas (P2a), Peter (P2a), Murray (P5b), Alex (P7a), Rebecca (P7b) and Louis (P6b)

We have raised an astonishing £406 to go toward the P7 residential trip to Benmore next year.
