It’s national ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ on Friday 13th December and we are asking if your child can come to school in their best Christmas themed jumper / t-shirt / outfit and donate £1 to ‘Save the Children’ to help kids around the world.

You don’t have to go out and buy a brand new jumper to join in with the day. You could just grab an old jumper and cover it with stickers, tinsel or whatever sparkly stuff that you have at home! Get creative! Have fun!

Here are a few ideas:

Just remember… Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is about more that just wearing silly sweaters – it’s about making the world a better place for children.

As testament to all the hard work and dedication put in by all members past and present, FXP has become so big that we now need to register as a charity and adopt a formal PTA structure.

As part of this we need to hold a formal AGM and elect members to the positions of secretary and treasurer.

We invite all parents, carers, guardians and staff who have a vested interest in FXP to attend.

The posts of Secretary and Treasurer are open to all parties with a vested interest in FXP and anyone who wishes to stand for these positions is invited to notify the chair by email (fxp@xpschool.org) no later than 24:00 on October the 23rd 2019.

The format of the AGM will follow a best practice format and an agenda will be published in due course.

The Chair will be available from 17:00 on the day of the meeting, at XP East should anyone have any questions or items they wish to discuss.

Tickets for our eagerly awaited second Ladies Night are now available! Drop your money into one of the offices with your child’s name/crew on & we’ll send out your tickets or you can keep your eyes peeled for one of our FXP Crew selling tickets in the carpark after school.

Thanks to Tracy!

Tonight was Tracy Wain’s final event as Chair of FXP. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy personally and on behalf of all of our students and their families for her tireless work in raising funds for our students.

This year, FXP have helped to raise money for 2 drum kits, amps, e-books for DofE, and this is in no small part down to Tracy and her dedicated team.

Tracy will still be helping out, but will be handing over the reins as chair.

Thank you Tracy for everything you have done!

 

As always, we would welcome any additional support that parents can give, even if just for one night a year. Please click on the link to FXP’s pages or their Facebook page to see how you could help or send the team a message.
