With the festive season a fond but distant memory and the New Year already well underway, the Friends recently met to plan our fund raising events for both the Spring and the Summer terms.
See below for a sneak preview of what we have in mind;

  •      Friday 25 January
         Afternoon tea and bake sale in the dinning room

  •          Saturday 2 March
         Race night over supper in the school hall

  •         Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 March 
         Play Drinks in the interval of the much anticipated form plays.

  •        Saturday 13 July                                                                                                                                                                Summer Ball in a beautiful marquee in the school grounds

This year our "Night with the stars" Ball is to be a joint production in conjunction with the Old Tockingtonians. This is because our guests of honour will be Richard and Jane Tovey, after 38 years of dedicated service at the helm of Tockington Manor school, are retiring and we plan to give them an extra special celebratory send off. The evening promises to be a wonderful formal occasion which will provide the perfect opportunity for parents, friends and staff to relax over a three course meal, listen to a live band and a disco while dancing the night away on the final evening of what always proves to be a very busy term. As is tradition, we invite the year eight leavers to this otherwise all adult event.

Over  the coming weeks we will advertise full details of all we plan both in the Tracker and by email.  Here’s hoping you will be able to join us at these very sociable fund raising opportunities run by the Friends for the benefit of the children at Tockington Manor School.
