Thank you from our PTA

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent PTA St Valentine’s Bake Sale and Family Skate Night.

The baked treats and pink lemonade were eye-catching, delicious and plentiful – what a lovely yummy choice we had! A BIG thank you to all our talented bakers, our time-giving sellers and to everyone who took the opportunity to indulge.  A tasty way to celebrate an early St Valentine’s Day.

The Family Skate Night was a ‘whizzing’ success with Provo Primary families and community friends having an exciting evening of skating fun and games.  A HUGE thank you to all our PTA helpers who organised the event, manned the refreshments and lead the puck shoot games.  It was great to see so many families rolling, turning, gliding and dancing around the rink together to the hit sounds provided by DJ Dayoh.
