Additionally, we have been working closely with school to organise a mobile planetarium to visit over two days, on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th March. Every class will get to see a science related show (e.g. Solar System, Dinosaurs, Earth & Beyond). You can see more about this online at This will be paid for from the PSA funds and we hope all the children will be inspired just before Science Week!
Sponsored  Bounce: the money raised will go towards new sports equipment. More details will be sent out before the Easter break - why not use the holiday break as a opportunity to ask family and friends to sponsor children for this much needed update to the equipment used during PE and sporting events.
All of us on the PSA committee are looking forward to our forthcoming events and we hope you will join us and offer your support.
Shop and support the PSA
We have registered with these two web sites who offer a percentage of the sales towards the PSA: : if you need stick on or iron on labels, shoe labels or bag tags please register for our group to benefit (our group name: CHRIST CHURCH PARENT STAFF ASSOCIATION KT5) : Participating online shops pay The Giving Machine a sales commission for directing shoppers to them, they then forward these commissions as free cash donations to us. Many large retailers and smaller shops participate, for example Amazon, M&S, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, John Lewis and many, many more (our group name: Christ Church CE School PSA, Surbiton). For the period from September to December 2012 we received £120 in commission. Please consider this site when shopping online.

Finally, your suggestions
