Welcome back, I hope you and your children had a good break.
Please find below some items that maybe of interest.
Parents’ Evening - These will be held on Wednesday 7th March and Tuesday 20th
March. Appointment sheets are located on the noticeboard outside your child’s
classroom. Please make every effort to attend.
2011 – 2012 School Calendar Amendment – We have just been notified of 2
further non-pupil days which are Tuesday 17th April and Friday 29th June which
have been agreed as a Cluster. These had been kept for snow days in case
schools had been closed. New calendars are available from the Office and are
also on the schools’ website.
Cycling Proficiency – Just a reminder that this starts for those in Year 6 who were
interested on Thursday 1st March.
Sainsbury’s Vouchers, Nestle Box Tops & Ink Cartridges - We are collecting these
so please keep them coming in. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Mobile Phones & Electrical Cables – Friends of the School are collecting theses. If
you have any they can be left at the School Office.
St David’s Day - This is next Thursday. Children can come to school in welsh
costume or in a welsh theme.
St David’s Day Lunch – There will be a change to the normal menu, lunch will be
cottage pie instead of roast beef.
School Website - We are continually updating our school website with events and
information so please take a look. If there is anything that doesn’t appear on
there that you think may be useful then please let us know.
Eggs – We are looking for some fertile chicken eggs for our incubator. If you can
