TA Silver Smarties Challenge Over February Half Term

The PTA are delighted to announce the return of the Silver Smarties Challenge  over the Spring Half Term.

On Wednesday 7th February, all children will receive a tube of smarties to bring home. We would like to encourage the children to complete chores and tasks over the Spring half term in exchange for some silver (20ps) to fill up their empty tube again.

Maybe you might be lucky and receive breakfast in bed, have your car cleaned or even a foot massage!

Any donations in Smarties tubes should be returned to the school office by Wednesday 21st February.

*Participation is of course optional, your child will still receive the Smarties.

**Please note that any children with allergies to the ingredients in Smarties will be provided with an alternative treat (rowntree’s fruit pastilles) and separate tube to fill.

Smarties Milk Chocolate Tube Multipack 34g 4 Pack – Tesco Groceries

Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles Sweets Multipack 42.8g 4 Pack – Tesco Groceries

If your child is vegan, please let us know via the following email address,[email protected] and we will arrange for them to have a pack of fruit pastilles. 

***Any coin/note is fine to put in the tube, it does not have to be 20ps. If you would rather make a donation to the challenge by BACS, please use reference SMARTIES when making the payment so it can be easily tracked in the account. The PTA bank account details are: Sort Code 30-91-11 account no: 02180810

Thank you as always for your support
