Please click here for letter regarding October Holiday Camp ran by ERC Culture & Leisure.
This is a family colour run open to all. Pupils of St. Thomas’ Primary will receive a free ticket in exchange for a sponsor form – these tickets will be given out tomorrow.
Everyone attending the colour run must have a ticket – parents/carers can purchase these at pta-events.co.uk/stthomaspta
Children 12 and under should be accompanied by a responsible adult for the duration of their time at the Colour Fest and remain the responsibility of that adult at all times.
The colour powder to be used has been certified as non-toxic and should wash out from clothing. Nevertheless, as a precaution, we recommend that old clothes and shoes should be worn along with sunglasses or goggles to protect eyes. Pale clothing will show off the colours better and we have plain and specially-printed white t-shirts available to buy on the website should you wish to do so.
Children and adults with respiratory issues such as asthma are recommended to ensure they have their inhaler with them (there will be no access to the school office) and disposable dust masks will be available on the day should you feel this necessary.
There will be qualified first-aiders there on the day and an event safety plan has been filed with ERC.
We hope that this will be a fun family day for the whole village and that our children will make some extra special memories!
Consent and sponsor forms were issued with the annual forms, but if you require another form please reply to this email or phone the school office.
Thank you for your support,
St. Thomas’ PTA
