PREVIOUS EVENTS HELD THIS SCHOOL YEAR
International Evening - Thursday 24 May 5.30pm - 7.30pm
The International Evening proved even more popular than ever. Being blessed with a beautiful evening, we made the most of being outside and we were thoroughly entertained by all year groups, plus we had some great parents dancing too!
With almost £800 of profit, this was by far the best International Evening from a fund raising perspective as well! So, a massive SWOYSA "Thank you" to everyone who came along.
Family Bingo Night - Thursday 22 March 5.30pm - 7.30pm
What a lot of fun our very first Bingo Night turned out to be!
Thanks in particular to our fantastic Bingo Caller who kept everyone entertained throughout the evening.
Family Film Night - SING - Thursday 8 February - doors 5pm, film starts 5.30pm
Wow - what an atmosphere!
Everyone had an amazing time, singing along to this family favourite... a great evening, thanks to all who attended and helped out.
CHRISTMAS FAIR - Sunday 3 December - 12.30 - 3.00pm
The Christmas Fair is one of the highlights of the year and the most important fund raising event for SWOYSA. This year's fair raised close to £4000!
Thank you to EVERYONE who contributed donations to be sold, came along to buy a few things and especially to those who helped to organise and run the event. It would not have happened if it were not for these tremendous efforts.
It was truly fantastic fair!
Pre-Christmas Shopping Evening - Tuesday 14 November - 7.00 - 9.00pm
What a fabulous night this was! The school was transformed into a retail and indulgance experience not even the major shopping malls could rival. With over 20 stalls and treatments, plus a great selection of food and drink, this was an extremely well attended event.
Thank you to all the stall holders, organisers and attendees for making it such a fantastic success!
SWOYSA Spooky Disco - Thursday 2 November - 5.30 - 7.30pm
The hall at this year's Spooky Disco was jam-packed and most people had come in their best ghoulish costumes... definitely the stuff of nightmares!
The Dancemasters DJs put on an amazing set that had everyone up and dancing.
Thank you to all the year 6 children who designed some truly awesome posters!
SWOYSA AGM - Thursday 5 October - 7pm onwards
There was an excellent turnout for the SWOYSA AGM, with election of this year's committee members (see SWOYSA Committee Members). Class Representatives were also elected at the AGM.
SWOYSA will be making funds available to the school in support of some very exciting activities and projects this year!
The committee is already working on plans to fill up your calendar with great events this year.
Please do contact any of the the committee members if you feel you have any ideas at all, or if you have particular skills or talents that can be put to good use.
FAMILY WELCOME BBQ! - Friday 22 September 5pm - 7pm
The first event of the new school year was the traditional SWOYSA Welcome BBQ with a fantastic number of families in attendance. The amazing weather topped off a perfect evening of food, drink and socialising... and what great entertainment from James Cowan!
WELCOME BACK FROM SWOSYA!
In 2016 - 2017 we had some amazing events, with fantastic numbers of parents and children attending.
We hope that this year the events will be bigger and better than ever.
Plans are being made for this year's events so keep a close eye on the website, in the weekly school newsletter and for flyers in your book bags.
SWOYSA is always on the lookout for willing volunteers, so please let us know if you want to help out.
And remember... all proceeds go directly to the school, benefiting our children.
Thanks and here's to a successful and fun-packed year of SWOYSA events!
