PTA Christmas Fayre
November 30th was the day when the school foyer and Hall were turned into a glorious and colourful display of Christmas shopping opportunities. A huge variety of vendors and exhibitors were on hand to add to the festive atmosphere. The marimba group played and the student choir sang, and the shoppers were also treated to a wonderful piano recital by Jack Boxall. Make sure the Fayre is in your diary for next year! Pictured below are the stalwart ladies of the PTA who deserve our grateful thanks and congratulations for a lovely day.

Panjazz Paris - Eurodisney debut!
Over the October Half Term, 43 musicians and five members of staff from Portchester Panyard visited Paris for four days. We left Portchester at 4am, just as hurricane force winds were raging. Dover was shut for several hours as a result of the strong winds, but we eventually got the ferry, and after a bumpy crossing arrived “en France.” On the Tuesday, we performed on the “Magic Kingdom” stage in Eurodisney in front of an enthusiastic audience. We spent the rest of the day trying out the rides, eating fast food and making new friends. After a long and tiring day, we went back to our accommodation for dinner, table tennis and sleep! On the following day after breakfast we went into Paris; firstly there was a riverboat tour on the Seine taking in many of the sights of the city. We then performed in a park behind the Notre Dame Cathedral and then on to the Eiffel Tower. It was a brilliant trip and we made lots of new friends. We all had an amazing time and we can’t wait to see where we’ll be going to next year.

Shoebox Challenge 2013
Once again Portchester students have exhibited the generosity for which they are known by contributing 147 shoeboxes to this year's Shoebox Appeal. Pictured right are our House Captains who had the pleasure of helping our colleagues from the Rotary club overload a car with presents for disadvantaged young people who will be having a happier Christmas as a result of our students' thoughtfulness.
