Easter Figolla

The ever-growing popularity of the annual sale of the traditional Easter Figolla has urged the PTA to organise it once again, despite the hard work it involves.  The parent teacher committee will be accepting a limited number of orders for the “figolli”, proceeds of which would go towards the school upkeep.

We therefore urge you to place your orders as early as possible, and not later than Thursday 7th April to avoid disappointment.   We in turn, promise to deliver very fresh, delicious and beautifully decorated “figolli” on Thursday 14th April.

We thank you most heartily for your support.
