A huge THANK YOU to all of the ADPS families (40 of you!) who got quizzical with us last night! And of course thank you to our resident Quiz Master Alex Furr for setting us the challenge!
With some tough rounds (including Disney, Music and Games) and some real head-scratchers provided by the teachers (thank you teachers!), not to mention an exciting tie break for first place, it was a really fantastic event which raised £190.92 for the school. First place received a £20 voucher from Pizzarova (kindly donated by a school family), Second place received a box of chocolates, and everyone who placed received a certificate to commemorate their achievement!
BIG congratulations to our winners:
1st Place - Brown Hawks 🥇
Joint 2nd Place - Bunny Monster🥈
Joint 2nd place - Team Templeman🥈
And in Tied 3rd place:
Team Poopy Cat🥉
Joynt Effort 🥉
The Fabulous Furrs!🥉
We have been very busy this year funding a range of initiatives to help our school, particularly to help with the management of COVID 19. Due to the generosity and support of the school community, we have managed to fund the following so far this 2020 - 2021 school year:
- A staff role (School Meals Supervisory Assistant) to support supervision of class/year group bubbles at lunchtime
- 280 books for Reception, Years 1, 2, 3 as well as an online subscription for school and home permanent access to all the Engage Literacy titles electronically online, to support remote learning (which follows on the purchase of 150 books for Years 4, 5, and 6 at the end of the last school year)
- A range of early learning resources for Reception and Year 1, including COVID 19-safe storage
- Sound-deadening materials (carpets, sound deadening felt and PVC table clothes) for Reception and Year 1, to minimise distractions and enhance learning, as well as provide a warmer, COVID 19 safe environment.
Thank you all for your participation in events, donations, and independent fundraising that makes this much needed support possible.
