Volunteers Needed

Happy New Year!  We hope you had a wonderful festive break and have come back refreshed and ready for the new term.

The first PTO meeting of the New Year will be next Thursday, 21 January at 8.30 am in the conference room in the admin building.  The main topic of discussion will be the putting together of a dynamic new PTO coordinating team.  We hope that you will be able to join us and that you will consider ways in which you can volunteer.

For those of you who missed the message posted in the Jaguar Journal on 11 December on this subject, please see below.

Looking forward to a big turn-out at next Thursday's meeting.

Best wishes,


The PTO has wonderful, hard working volunteers. As many of you know, we run a series of community and fundraising events throughout the year, such as family fun days, the hugely popular soiree litteraire, Santa Sale, used book sale, and much more. These events can only take place if we have a strong team comprised of a leader and co-chairs.

Over the past few months, Jane Piot has been the interim Chair, assisted by Jen Grant, former PTO Chair. From January, Jane is not able to continue to chair as she has decided to return to working in public health. We are therefore looking for a dynamic, energetic person (or group of 2 persons) who would like to run the PTO team.

Please consider volunteering for this position – it’s incredibly rewarding! We are very hopeful that we will get a new team in place as soon as possible in order that the popular PTO-organised events throughout the calendar year can continue without a break.

Thank you to everyone who purchased Scholastic Books and to the PTO volunteers, particularly Maria Lynham who managed the Scholastic Book Sale. We earned lots of reward books for our classrooms!

Thank you, too, to all the Santa Sale volunteers who helped make it such a wonderful event for the students! We couldn’t have done it without so many parent and teacher helpers!

We wish everyone a restful, enjoyable vacation. Happy holidays to all!
