Parent Community

Welcome to our Parent Community which is open to all parents and friends of the school. Our PTA, Friends of Manby Lodge, organise fun events for our children and social events for parents and carers. They also raise money to provide valuable extra funding for school projects. Examples from this year include: Buddy Benches/ Buddy Bus Stops, learning resources, classroom experiences such as ZooLab, School Councillor hats/ badges, 25% towards all school trips and more to come. Most recently Friends of Manby Lodge have raised funds to provide a noticeboard in the playground so parents have access to a variety of information communicated by the school.

Infamous Manby Lodge Quiz Night

A big thank you to everyone who came to support our quiz. Special thank yous go to Neil, Helen Waddington and Graham Douglas for once again creating and running a unique night of entertainment and to Toni Reynoldson and Simon Tarr for the smooth running of the bar.

We are delighted to say that not only was the event good fun but it raised £1,521.80 for our children to benefit from.

Year 1 Film Night

On the back of the success of our first film night for Year 2 in January, we held the same event for Year 1 children and siblings in March. The children voted to watch The Boss Baby.

It was a great atmosphere and the children certainly enjoyed the hotdogs, popcorn and the opportunity to watch a film in their PJs with their friends. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success –  we managed to raise £320.20 profit from this event.

Year 1 Cake, Egg Cup and Wrist band sale

Thank you so much for all the cakes baked and donated by Year 1 parents – wow! We were overwhelmed! We took £290 from this sale on the last day of term, and for this being an early school finish this was fantastic!

Collectively the sale and the film night raised £610. This equates to £203 to each Year 1 class. Next term the focus will be on the Reception classes!
