There were spooky goings-on in the Infant Hall on Tuesday night (Tue 22 October 2019) as we opened the doors for the Halloween Disco.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support the event and special thanks to our new DJ Ali, who provided fantastic themed music, and Domino’s Pizza who supplied lashings of pizza. Everyone had an amazing time dancing, eating, drinking and glowing in the dark !!!!
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to the Friends of Shaw who volunteered their time to organise and run the event which raised approx. £270.
MacMillan Coffee Morning - Sept 2019
Thank you to everyone who made a donation to our McMillan Coffee Morning on Friday 27th September 2019. The staffroom was awash with goodies for us all to share in support of MacMillan Cancer Support. We raised £283.07p which we will be sending off to this fantastic charity very shortly. Special thanks to the Friends of Shaw for making drinks throughout the morning and keeping everyone entertained.
Volunteering in School - July 2019
In our Prizegiving Assemblies this week we paid special tribute to our band of loyal volunteers that help support the staff and your children both academically and socially via the Friends of Shaw.
In the 6 years we have been running the scheme, volunteers have given the school 9489 hours for free, which equates to one person working every day in school for 10 years !!!!!
It is truly an amazing and selfless thing to do, so we thank them all for their time and dedication.
If you have a couple of spare hours a week and are interested in volunteering, please contact Mrs Lamberth who will meet with you in September. Please be aware that all volunteers have to undergo a DBS (police) check.
