Macmillan Cancer – Tea Party
From 2:30pm on Friday October 9th, Roche CP School are holding an after school tea party in aid of both Macmillan Cancer support and the school itself. Our school hall will be open for you and the community to come and enjoy a delicious selection of drinks and cakes! Children will be released from classes at 3:15pm as usual from their doors. You are then very welcome to come back into the hall with your child/ren. There will also be some activities going on and the unveiling of the winning 'Bake Off' competition. Please come along and support this very worthwhile cause. The children will all be busy baking scrumptious surprises next week for this event. From Monday next week, the children can bring in money to have a go at Guess the spots, at 20p a go. The winner will receive a voucher.
All Age Worship Service
This coming Sunday, as with most first Sundays of the month, there will be an All-age Worship service which is child friendly at St Gomonda's church at 11 am.
Come along and find out what happens and how children are provided for.
Farewell Mrs Webb
As some of you may already know Mrs Webb is leaving us this week. She has devoted a great deal of time to the school, as a parent, Governor, member of staff and the driving force behind fundraising for our school minibus. We will all miss you Annie and wish you and your family every future happiness in whatever your future adventures may be xxx
Firstly a massive thank you to Heidi for leading the Friends of Roche School group for the past successful years, and secondly hello to our new line up!
I am very much looking forward to leading our friends group, I have been involved with Roche School for many years. Running the after school art club most recently and helping the children create lasting art installations, the giant mosaic in the reception area being the first!
As many of you will know the friends group has been responsible for the fabulous fundraising discos and fairs which has enabled the school to purchase invaluable resources for the children including the mini bus! Amazing!
This years' fundraising will continue in a similar way but with a new twist… we will be looking at ways to raise money to keep the mini bus moving, but a new direction we will be exploring will be in ways to make the friends group more community focused; culminating in an end of year school based extravaganza for the whole village to enjoy!
As with any big event, the more people on board the merrier - so, attached is a parent volunteer slip… if you have any time, ideas, super power 😊 that you feel could add to the children's and our (parents) experience of Roche School please complete and return to the office.
If you see me in the playground at school or milling around the village please feel free to say hello or drop in to see Chrissie in the school office if you have any questions regarding our new direction.
Updates will appear on the newsletter throughout the year!

The Great Roche Bake Off!
Having witnessed and sampled some truly delicious cakes sent in for class cake sales, it is clear we have some amazing bakers amongst our families. Now is your chance to be crowned star baker of Roche CP! All we ask is for your very best two-layer sponge cake. It can be any flavour and decoration that you want but should be handed in by midday on Friday 9th October. Judging will take place by our newly appointed Head Boy and Head Girl during the afternoon and will be announced at the Tea party. This cake will then be opened up to a silent auction where people can place bids anonymously to try and buy the cake. All others entries will be distributed throughout the tea party for all to enjoy.
