On Friday 30th September 2016, we will be hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning at King Edward VI High School. We would like to invite both parents and pupils to attend our fundraising event and support us in helping this national charity.
We will be selling tickets at £2.50 and this will entitle you to a drink and a sweet treat to enjoy in our Food Studies department. In addition, a Year 10 tutor group will be running a raffle and selling tickets to support the event.
If you would like to attend please complete the reply slip with your ticket money and send to the main office as soon as possible. Tickets will be issued to your son/daughter before the event. Please specify the time slot within which you would like to attend and we can ensure your child is able to be released from class to meet you on the morning.
If you are unable to attend but your child would like to come with a friend, they are more than welcome to buy tickets to join in too (parental attendance is not compulsory).
Please complete the reply slip and return to the office with correct payment by Wednesday 28th September. We look forward to seeing you soon.
