Parent Governor Vacancies
This is a reminder that we have two vacancies for parent governors on Millthorpe’s Governing Board. The election will take place on Friday 15 September 2017 and a parent or carer can propose a candidate, stand for election and vote in the election, if he or she has a child registered at the school on the date of the election. If you are interested in standing or would like to nominate somebody, please click here for the parent governor nomination form.

It’s a Knock Out event in aid of St Leonard’s Hospice
St Leonard’s Hospice are organising a fun-filled fundraising event on Sunday 3 September at 10:30am on the Knavesmire based on the classic slapstick gameshow. As well as the main tournament, there will be a funfair, inflatables, games and food stalls. Several brave (foolhardy?) Millthorpe staff have entered a team and we’d be extremely grateful for your support. You can:

  • Sponsor the Millthorpe team by making a donation via ParentPay
  • Come along on the day to cheer us on / laugh at us

All money raised goes towards helping St Leonard’s provide free care to people with life limiting illnesses and their families. You can find out more about the event by visiting: www.stleonardshospice.org.uk/Help/Events/Its-a-Knockout
