Hill Croft School Invites You....

Some time ago you may remember when Kerr's Corner spoke to
Sonya Hall, who was then the Parent Teacher Association
secretary at Hill Croft Special School, Newtownabbey.

Sonya told us that the school was due to move to a brand new
building in New Mossley. The move went ahead last November.
The children and young people have settled in well to their
new surroundings.

After the excitement of the move, the school is now
celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year, so they have
lots of activities planned for the pupils!

The PTA have decided to hold the schools first ever garden
fete. This will take place at the school on Saturday 17th June
2006, from 10am to 2pm.

I'm told that there will be lots of stalls, from grocery,
books, toys, bric a brac etc. They'll also have a barbecue,
teas, coffees and refreshments for the children. Look out for
the bouncy castle, face painting, penalty kick and visits from
the Fire and Police service. There will also be a ballot, with
the chance of winning soe very good prizes.

The current secretary, Joanna Ireland invites anyone to come
along and support the school on the day. She said, "We are
hoping for a good turnout for our first ever fete. Every penny
raised will go directly to the pupils. We hope the weather
will be good, but we have contingency plans in case it isn't!
So don't let a little rain put you off!"

Kerr's Corner wishes the PTA every success with the fete and
we will let you know how they get on.
