We Look Forward to Seeing You....
CASCA MEETING - Wednesday 11 October, 6.30pm - all welcome, please come along!
Our first CASCA meeting of the year is on Wednesday 11 October - and we'd love to see you there. It's open to all parents and carers, and we'll have some drinks and snacks. It's a great chance to meet other parents from across the school, and to catch up with the CASCA team. We'll discuss our events coming up, and look at the year ahead. CASCA offers great networking opportunities for parents and carers, as well as fun and sociable activities!
MORE@MORO - SELECT BUT SPECIAL AUCTION ITEMS
We are busy at CASCA preparing for the More@Moro Fundraising Event that we're organising with Sam & Sam Clark at their beautiful restaurant in Exmouth Market next month.
We're now curating items for a ’Select - but very Special’ Auction on the night, to raise much needed funds for the school. In addition to fabulous artworks offered by Cornelia Parker and Jeff McMillan, Sam has offered 'Casa Moro' - a Moro chef to cook for someone at their home; Greg Klerkx a ‘rustic mountain getaway - part of a 15th century rural finca, in the heart of Mallorca’s Serra de Tramuntana, a World Heritage site'.
We have a bread baking workshop with the Swedish Bakery and two Boutique Gin Distilling workshop on offer. Not forgetting something quite unique from the original filming of Trainspotting!
So...if you have something very special that could be offered for Auction on 16 October we'd love to hear from you. It could be a piece of art, some jewellery or cufflinks, or a new designer fashion item, for example. Are you a professional musician who could offer entertainment for a party, or do you have a holiday home you could offer? All the money raised will benefit all the pupils at the school. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with any queries.
