International Fun Afternoon
What a really lovely event! Our first International Afternoon in the new school and everyone had such a great time. We saw some real talent from our children who performed dances, sang and played instruments and the baking skills really showed in the fantastic range of cakes for the Bake Off.
Thanks to the band for entertaining us with great music and a really big thank you to our PTFA for organising yet another success event.
What a wonderful time the children had at our first event in our new school - the Easter Fayre!
There was a great selection of games and stalls for them to enjoy and lots and lots of lovely cakes for them to buy - thank you parents for all your donations and delicious home made treats. We also saw some fantastic creations from children and parents in our egg decorating competition.
A really big thank you to everyone for the hard work put in to getting this event together and for running it on the day - as you can see from the pictures below, it was a great event and which raised £950 for the school.
Disco Fever! February 2017
What a great way to end our first half term in our new school! The children danced away to their favourite songs and showing great moves on the dance floor. Thanks to all the PTFA for putting this on for the children and helping us raise £535 towards school funds.
International Evening 2016
What another great event the PTFA have put on for our School Community despite the torrential rain!
There were lots of fun things for the children and adults to enjoy - dressing up in fancy costumes, tombola's, games, talent show, bbq, our very own bake off and of course, some wonderful International Food. Thank you to everyone who helped before, during and after the event. We raised £1,342 to go towards buying new equipment for the new school.
Easter Fayre 2016
'Thank You' to you everyone that helped co-ordinate and organise the really lovely Easter Fayre! All the children had tremendous fun having a go on the variety of stalls, hunting for eggs in the garden and what a wonderful selection of Easter bonnets were on show too!
Let's Dance! February 2016
What a great time the children had when the PTFA put on a disco for them. They certainly had their party shoes on and we saw some real groovy moves!
Christmas Fayre 2015
Another really successful event that saw our community come together and enjoy the Christmas Fayre. The children visited Father Christmas, made food for the Reindeers, bought (and ate!) some lovely home made cakes and had fun at the various stalls. The smell of hot pulled pork and apple baps, jerk chicken and jollof rice wafting through the hall made for a wonderful atmosphere. Thank you to everyone who made this possible and help raise £1,680 for the school.
'Oh no it isn't... Oh yes it is!'
What a fantastic time the whole school had when they watched the panto 'Little Red Riding Hood' at Greenwich Theatre. Thank you so much to the PTFA for funding this and to all the parents who helped on the trip.
Dara Ward, Parent - "A magical walk through Greenwich Park and the excitement was palpable. The kids were amazing and so well behaved during the long walk. Once we arrived at the theatre I was impressed at how the kids took their seats and sat expectant for what was to come.
Little Red riding Hood did not disappoint, from the stage and costumes, the music and songs, the dancing and scripting, the hilarious jokes and quips all part of a panto experience. Most of all was seeing the faces of the children, dancing in their seats, laughing with joy, the Dame, the Wolf, Little Red riding Hood and her Prince and of course Mr Small who played a starring role in his own right!
I would not have missed it for the world. I hope the OLG can continue the experience for other children in the years ahead"
Ola Olomo, Governor - It was a wonderful experience to accompany the whole school to watch the Little Red Riding Hood Pantomime at the Greenwich Theatre. The pantomime itself was a great performance and it was clearly evident that all the children really enjoyed themselves. Real kudos to the PTFA for sponsoring the whole show. It was also nice to see all the children well behaved while watching the show and more especially the juniors who had to walk all the way to the theatre and back. Great credit to them for being in high spirits all the way and back and to Mr Small and all the members of staff as well for making sure that the whole experience was well organised. Was really proud as a governor.
International Evening 2015
What a brilliant celebration we had involving all the different cultures we have here at Our Lady of Grace. You could really feel the whole community come together - vibrant colours and cultural dress, delicious variety of international food, dancing and music from around the world and fantastic talent on show!
Thanks to all the PTFA and staff for making this another wonderful and successful event.
