Dear all,

 As we outlined earlier in the school year the OLM – PSA are trying some new events for fundraising this year to ensure that all children can take part.

 Last term we enjoyed the successful Reindeer Day and Christmas Fayre which enabled us to fund …

Think Science
The profits from the Christmas Fayre have funded the Think Science Workshops for P1 to P6. Feedback from the children and staff has been extremely positive and we hope to be able to fund this activity each year (although as the workshops are so expensive we are likely only to be able to fund this every second year for each class). Total cost £3100. Continue reading PSA NEWS AND DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

Please support the OLM Christmas Fayre

Saturday  3rd December 1pm to 3.30pm

 Tickets are £2.50 per adult (children are free) and  include tea / coffee mince pies/ traybake and free juice and biscuits for the kids.

You can visit Santa (£3 per child includes a gift) – we will have a ticketing system so no need for a long queue.

Christmas Fayre Donations Letter 2016

Christmas Fair (3rd December) – Raffle Donations

The PSA have started their planning for the biggest fundraiser in the school calendar, the Christmas Fair.  One of the main aspects of this day is our annual raffle and for this to be a success we rely on donations.

So we are appealing to you for any donation, be it a voucher, bottles of wine/champagne, memberships, tickets, beauty products, electrical goods etc. Funds raised at the Fair all go towards activities and equipment that otherwise the children would not be able to benefit from and it really does make a difference.

If you are able to help, or can persuade your employer to donate a prize, it would really help ensure the raffle continues to be one of our major fund-raising successes.

The Fair is well attended by local families and is a great occasion for everyone to get together. We advertise the prizes ahead of time and would like to promote the donations, so an early donation is appreciated.

If you would like us to collect your gift, please contact the school on 0141 570 7280, olm-psa@hotmail.com, drop it by at the school office, or ring Bernadine Nordmann on 07977596802  and we will arrange for a parent to uplift.

May we take this opportunity to thank you and we will be in touch soon.

 Yours sincerely,

Our Lady of the Missions PSA.

Parent Staff Association Event Update

At this month’s meeting it was agreed that there would be no Halloween event.  Instead, we are keen to introduce new and exciting events and activities which will allow more children to take part. We also hope to spread the requests for donations more evenly through the school year and hopefully bring better profits that will go towards more equipment and activities for the children in school.  Details of the new events will be issued nearer the time.  The Christmas Fair will go ahead as usual on Saturday 3rd December with some exciting new visitors and activities, watch this space!!….We have received fantastic support already this year and your help and feedback both positive and negative are greatly appreciated. Remember everyone is automatically  a member of the PSA so please get involved.


***Greetings Cards Information ***

Greetings cards design forms should have made their way home to you. Most children received these on Thursday – if you have not received them please ask your child to check their tray / bag.


Designs should be drawn on the A4 sheet and stuck into the form.

We are also looking for helpers from 12-2 on Wednesday 5th October to sort cards for sending off to the company. Please emailolm-psa@hotmail.com if you can help.

The card company is different this year as it has a reputation for a quicker turnaround (we didn’t get this option last year) and also gives more card design options (Christmas / Birthday / Thank-you / or blank for your own message). As it is a different company, mugs are not available to order this year.

Any questions, please contactolm-psa@hotmail.com, or see our Facebook page (OLM PSA)

Saturday 4th June 2016 1.00pm – 3.30pm in Junior department

How does it work?

You donate, we sell!  Proceeds from the sale of blazers and all other uniform items go towards the school funds.  Larger blazers are particularly helpful.

How do I donate?

Blazers / uniform should be

  • handed into the school office by the end of the school day on Friday 3rd June
  • in good condition.Blazers: please put a note in the top pocket of the blazer to confirm sex and approximate size. Please also put each blazer in a separate bag.

What will things cost?
Most blazers sold for £10-£20 last year depending on condition. Clothing depended on quality and condition but was still a fraction of the usual cost – most items were £1 each. Some, if still in packets, will be sold for slightly more.  Leftover items will be kept for the next sale (if in v good condition) or donated for charity recycling. Thanks for your support!

What if I want to sell rather than donate?
If you would prefer to sell your blazer or other uniform items and keep the sale proceeds this can be done via the school’s PSA facebook page.
