Rayne PSA Doorstep Fete

A Huge Success!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and supported the first ever Rayne PSA Doorstep Fete on Saturday 10th July.

The whole community joined together to run a variety of stalls in and around Rayne village. Attractions included a Grand Prize Draw, Beat the Goalie, Soak a Teacher in the Stocks, visit a Police car and fire engine, Guess the Teacher, Doggy Derby, Wheel of Fortune, Adult and Child Tombolas, Ice Cream, BBQ, Bake Off Cake stall, a whole host of small business stalls, Splat the Rat and Rayne School Enterprise stalls. We also worked in conjunction with GS Fitness who were running their own charity fundraising day.

It was lovely to see so many people out and about and lots of smiley children's faces. 

A fantastic £2,231 was raised which will go towards our pond renovation project to enhance Science learning.

Thank you so much to our wonderful PSA who worked tirelessly to organise the event, it was a fantastic community day!

Enterprise Challenge

In the run up to the fete, each class participated in the Rayne School Enterprise Challenge. Rayne PSA gave each class £30 to start with and challenged the children to come up with a money making scheme to make a profit.

After initial business meetings, our young entrepreneurs came up with a whole host of interesting ideas. Apple Class decided to make butterfly feeders, Oak Class designed picture frames, Willow Class created Wonka sweetie bags including a special golden ticket and Maple Class made bird feeders and nature frames.

In KS2, Elm class designed their very own tie dye t-shirts (thanks to the skills and volunteering of Mrs McAllister) whilst Beech Class created unique plant pots. In Pine, they decided to design word art to sell and Hazel Class sold out of their mystery bags full of treats. Year 6 children in Chestnut knew that their Dodgeball Doom idea would be popular throughout the school as they challenged each class to a fast-paced ball game!

The Enterprise Challenge was a huge success and enriched the doorstep fete too as many of the products were sold to the school and village community.

Thank you to everyone who got involved and supported one or more of the schemes. We are still finalising the numbers and will let you know how much was raised in total shortly....

Smarties Chores Challenge

A big thank you to everyone who took part in the Smarties Chores Challenge over half term. A fantastic £407.65 was raised which will go towards the pond renovation. Congratulations to Elm Class who raised the most money on average - they have won a non-uniform day. Well done to Chloe from Beech Class who won the competition as one of the highest fundraisers, she has won donuts for all of her class mates and Beech staff!

Happy Bag Clothing

Another fantastic £416.40 was added to the pond upgrade fundraising pot recently as parents, staff and people from the local community kindly donated their unwanted clothes, shoes and soft toys, for the Rayne PSA Happy Bag collection! We thank you all greatly for your support.

Rayne PSA Logo Design

This week Mrs Keeling presented Samuel F his prize for winning the Design a Rayne PSA logo competition. There were lots of brilliant entries from across the school but his design really stood out because of the sense of community, set within a bright star, that is conveyed in his drawing.

It is now the official logo for Rayne Parent School Association and has also been made into stickers! Well done Samuel!

Rayne Easter Treasure Hunt

This year the PSA decided to run an Easter Treasure Hunt throughout the Easter holidays, to create a fun activity for local families. Clue sheets were purchased for £1.50 and children were asked to find coloured stones, placed in various location across the pretty village of Rayne, to seek out a chocolate reward. It proved extremely popular and raised a brilliant £709.86!

PSA 2021 Mother's Day Tea

This year, in conjunction with Steady Pace Cafe, the PSA Mother's Day Tea was run as a pre-order and takeaway service. Delicious scones with jam and cream and yummy vanilla and chocolate cupcakes were provided by Anja at Steady Pace and a percentage was given to the PSA, raising approximately £115!
