FOJ Sunday Teas - Sunday 13th May 2.45 - 5pm
Come and join us for some yummy tea and cakes while we raise money for new school equipment, including some tools and storage for the school garden and vegetable patch. This year we’re holding a children’s cake competition with the theme ‘garden’ which can be interpreted as you see fit! We’d also be grateful for any donations of homemade cakes or scones for us to sell. Please hand these into the school office on the afternoon of Friday 11th May or take directly to the church hall from 2pm on Sunday 13th. If anyone is available to help on the day please let us know. And don't forget to bring your friends, family and neighbours down to enjoy some cake and support the school.
