In 2017 The Corbet School will be celebrating its 60th year with a Diamond Anniversary Festival which will be held at school on Saturday 20th May. The festival is part of a yearlong celebration which will include a variety of events and activities. As well as celebrating our past we aim to raise funds to allow us to refurbish the science laboratories to make them suitable for modern science lessons.
We are selling Raffle Tickets throughout the year and the draw for the Raffle will take place at The Corbet School on Friday 1st December 2017. We would like to involve everyone in the community to sell tickets, therefore, we would be very grateful for your help to raise money so we can refurbish the Science labs to support our children’s education.
To meet the requirements of the licence, children are NOT allowed to sell tickets. Therefore, tickets will be addressed to the parents/carers and please support us by ensuring children do not sell the tickets.
If you are able to help us by selling tickets on our behalf, please get in touch and let us know how many tickets you require
