We organise lots of events throughout the year, all designed to be great fun for the children and adults alike, as well as raising funds for the school.
Please see below for some of our highlights.
Summer Fair, July 2017
Our Summer Fair was a great day! We had a fantastic turnout of people who enjoyed lots of activities such as ‘Welly Wanging’, ‘Drench your Dad’, ‘Human Fruit Machine’ and much more…
Family Movie Night, July 2017
This was a new event in the PTA calendar and was a huge success. Over 120 people joined us to see the movie ‘Sing’ with the children wearing slumber attire and accompanied by their favourite teddies. It was a lovely, chilled atmosphere.
Camping at Studfold Farm, June 2017
We had gorgeous weather for our camping weekend. The children enjoyed playing football, having water fights, exploring How Stean Gorge whilst the adults had the chance to relax and soak up the sun. A great weekend enjoyed by everyone!
Christmas Fair, December 2016
Our Christmas Fair was a magical occasion with lots of people attending. It was made even more special by the guest appearance of Father Christmas who delighted the children.
Quiz Night, November 2016
We had a great night at the Quiz Night with lots of money raised (mostly through the consumption of alcohol!) and a lot of competitive spirit on display. Great fun!
Summer Fair, July 2016
Despite the drizzly weather, our Summer Fair was a huge success. We had a “Scootathon”, “Drench your Dad”, a football shoot-out and many more stalls and activities, together with beer and a barbeque for the adults. It was also a great opportunity for our new starters who joined us in September to see the school and enjoy the lovely atmosphere of All Saints’.
Camping at Studfold Farm, June 2016
Every year, we organise a school family camping trip. This year, we took over the whole campsite at the scenic Studfold Farm, and had an amazing time (despite the disappointing weather – again!). The children had an absolute ball, as did the adults.
Casino Night, June 2016
And it’s not just the children who have fun! We also organise fantastic nights out for the mums and dads too. Our Casino Night, held at the Ilkley Tennis Club, was a great opportunity for the grown-ups to get glammed up, try their luck at the casino tables and then dance the night away.
Ilkley Carnival, May 2016
Who can forget this year’s Carnival, when the heavens opened just as the procession started? (a common theme it would appear). But that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, and we not only won “Best School in Parade” but the coveted title of “Best in Parade”. It was a great day!
Foundation and Year 1 Easter Party, March 2016
Always a popular event with our younger children. About 50 Foundation and Year 1 children enjoyed a very special Easter Party with craft activities, an Easter Egg Hunt, egg decorating competition and lots of fun and games.
School Disco, February 2016
Our discos are undoubtedly the children’s favourite activity. We put on two discos on the evening to cater for the younger and older children, and judging from their happy, sweaty faces at the end of the evening, they are a great success.
Over the course of the school year, these activities (and all the other PTA events), have raised an amazing amount of money which has gone back into the school to fund various exciting initiatives. We will continue to update this page with news about our 2016/2017 activities.
