PTA Summer Fair 2022
We said a huge ‘THANK YOU! to our amazing PTA, especially Mrs Skinner, Mrs Joyce, Mrs Swain and Mrs Holden, for organising such a fantastic Summer Fair. The day was filled with sunshine, fun and laughter, bringing the whole school community together. There were many familiar faces – including past and present families and staff – along with many of our new entrants. Thanks to everyone's support, planning and donations, we have raised over £6,000.
Mrs Holden and her team, and of course Mr. Bridges who led the quiz, organised another brilliant social event. The overall winners were “No Flies on Dragons”. The staff team “Don’t Give Up the Day Job” came a very respectable 5th place! The evening was great fun with lots of laughter and brain power used.

they joined in with the fun Bangers and Bingo event! Shouts of "bingo" rang throughout the hall and along the corridors! Everyone really enjoyed their bangers.

Marvelous Movie Night
Once again we had a very successful Movie Night! The children changed into their pyjamas, enjoyed popcorn, a cookie made by our kitchen staff, and a refreshing drink, and settled down to watch their favourite movie.
Thank You to Our Wonderful PTA
Since September, our wonderful PTA has raised an amazing £4,500 which has benefitted the children through the purchase of new books in the class book corners, and will also go towards the school’s new Wellbeing Garden.
They have organised some amazing events especially at such a busy time of the year.
Carols on the Common was a great success and brought together both Riverhead and Amherst parents, as well as local residents. The Advent Calendar and Hamper Raffle raised lots of money and well done to all the winners.
Advent Calendar Raffle
Our PTA Christmas events started with our amazing Advent Calendar Raffle. We had some fantastic calendars including a "fidget calendar", chocolate calendars and traditional paper calendars and the event raised £850. for the school.
The endless commitment and enthusiasm of our wonderful PTA meant that were able to purchase 30 new iPads for the children to use. There will always be an important place in the classroom for pen and paper, but it is reassuring to know that Riverhead Infants' is keeping up to date with the latest technology giving the children a wonderful start to a “well rounded” education.
The Riverhead Carnival
Thank you to everyone who helped at the Riverhead Carnival. The combined Riverhead and Amherst stall raised an amazing £687 which was shared between both schools.
Nearly New Uniform Sales
A big "thank you" to Mrs Holden, Mrs Miles and Mrs Tonge for organising our Nearly New Sale. The last sale raised nearly £80.
Our Wonderful PTA
Thank you to our wonderful PTA who purchased a license for every child in the school to access the Collins Big Cat E-books online library during lockdown. Class teachers allocated two books each week according to the child's colour band. The resource was a great addition to the home learning and benefitted the children enormously.
The PTA also donated money for the new books in the classrooms. Again, every child benefitted from these lovely books.
