‘Tombola Prize appeal’

Stepping Stones Pre–School Parwich

As you are probably aware Stepping Stones is our very own village run Pre-School and each year we rely on donations to keep us running.

As part of our fundraising agenda we will be holding our annual Christmas Fayre on Saturday 26th November 12 – 4pm in the Memorial Hall, Parwich.

We will be hosting an array of stalls, and would gratefully receive any donations of tombola prizes, raffle prizes or yummy treats for our cake stall.

We ask for your support for this event, more the merrier.

Come along on the day and enjoy, fun for all the family….…and as always your support does not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.

Donations may be left with any of the Pre-School staff (Memorial Hall before 9am Mon – Fri) or contact Katy Wayne 390 419

Many Thanks

This week’s Stunner

Here’s our pick of this week’s stories of local interest. You can read the full newspaper online, browse the week’s main news stories, or buy a copy from Janet at the shop.

Page 5:Outstanding across the board at pre-school.

Many congratulations to Parwich Stepping Stones, who have been given an “outstanding” review by Ofsted. Stepping Stones were awarded the highest possible grade in every one of the 17 categories.

Tracy Marshall, chair of the school committee, said: “The committee has put in an exceptional amount of hard work in to achieving this standard and thoroughly deserve it, especially so as we have recently undertaken a mammoth task of moving premises within the last 12 months.”

On the Stunner’s Twitter stream (@AshbourneNews), the paper tweeted that Stepping Stones was “the first in the area I’ve ever seen get outstanding grades across the board. Incredible!”

Pages 20-21: “Celebrating St. George.”

A splendid two-page photo spread on Sunday’s celebrations.

Page 22: There’s a reminder for Saturday’s May Day concert in St Peter’s Church, featuring the Essentially Brass Quintet and organist Christian Cartwright. Call 529 for tickets.

Remember it is the Crib Service on Thursday at 4pm, everyone is extremely welcome.

The Stepping Stones Pre-school have been doing lots of lovely things and they would like to share some photos with us.

After a walk around Parwich when the children were looking for signs of Spring, they then made these pictures of trees.

The children went on a visit to Ashbourne Library for a special ‘Storytime’ after which the children enjoyed choosing books to take home. The squash and biscuits were popular too!  There is now a display of their work in the children’s section of the library.  Why not pop in and have a look.

Pre School Event

On Monday morning the children of Stepping Stones Pre-School showed how much they appreciate us Mums (and Grandmas), by inviting us along and showcasing  their paintings of their Mums and telling us why they love us. 

(My special talent apparently, is making dinner. Thank you Wyatt x)

Then as if that wasn’t enough, they treated us to refreshments: homemade fairy and butterfly cakes and orange juice, all aided by their very special supervisors, Penny and Felicity.

The whole event left all of the Mums feeling very special, and quite rightly so!!!

– Tracy Marshall.
