We Look Forward to Seeing You....
Thank you to everyone who came along to the CASCA meeting - it was great to see so many new faces. It's wonderful how much experience and talent we have among our parent community - thanks too for all the ideas! We now have quite a few new volunteers for our CASCA events. It was also nice to see so many new parents meeting others from across their year group.
MORE@MORO - thanks and more....
We're looking forward to our special fundraising event on Monday night at Moro, and to welcoming guests from 6.45pm. We have a fabulous evening planned with delicious, Moorish food and wine; busking on Exmouth market by enterprising CSG musicians...plus great company and an amazing Auction and Raffle. We're delighted to have a full house, including parents and carers, former CSG students, governors and other friends of the school.
Thank you so much to everyone who has so generously donated such fabulous gifts for the More@Moro Auction and Raffle. These include significant works by Antony Gormley, Cornelia Parker, Jeff McMillan and Dario Mitidieri; unique holiday home stays in lovely parts of France, Spain and South America; a beautiful piece of jewellery by the talented Flora Bhattachary; and some very special experiences including Casa Moro - a Moro chef to cook in your home, tickets to David Baddiel's 5-star show My Family: Not the Sitcom, a personal writing session with the author Charlotte Mendelson, LSO concert tickets, a Boutique Gin Distilling workshop, Yoga sessions, a bread baking workshop at the Swedish Bakery – and something quite unique from the set of Trainspotting!
If you are attending, make sure you bring your cheque book for the amazing auction (and cash for the raffle)! All the funds raised will benefit all the pupils at the school.
We recognise that there are limited places for this CASCA event. But....it's part of our year-long 60 for 60 campaign to help furnish all the new school spaces. So, if you can't join in this time, but want to support the school on 60 for 60 anyway, please do so either at the 60 for 60 Just Giving site or via your ParentPay account
