YEAR 2 PARENTS/CARERS
Just a reminder that we look forward to seeing you tomorrow, Wednesday 4 March at 2.30pm for the
meeting regarding Tasks and Tests.
Our Friends Association work very hard organising fun, social events to raise additional funds for our
children. Please do support our Association as often as you can. The next meeting is next Wednesday
11 March at 7.30pm in our staffroom. The meeting usually closes at around 9.00pm. All are welcome.
The next Fun Morning is Saturday 14 March. Hope you have your tickets!
Thank you for attending the above last week. It was lovely to see so many of you celebrating your
children’s achievements and supporting their developmental areas by talking with teachers and looking
at your child’s work.
If you were not able to come along, please do ensure that you make a mutually agreeable appointment
with your child’s class teacher as soon as you can.
We had a wonderful response to our request of outgrown underwear and school wear. We are now fully
stocked again in school and nursery so your children will have a large choice should they need a change
of clothes whilst at school. Many thanks for your help.
We have been asked by John Hobbs, Head teacher of Heathrow Primary School to collect any
baby/toddler clothes from our parents to donate to the Nairobi community orphanage which takes in
abandoned babies, HIV orphans, and babies of young mothers who cannot cope. Last year we donated
summer dresses which were very gratefully received. Please bring any outgrown baby clothes to our
front reception and we will pass them on to John for him to take to Nairobi.
RED NOSE DAY
Friday 13 March is Red Nose Day and the School Council have decided to celebrate by having a RED
day. We request that children DO NOT bring in noses to wear that day for hygiene purposes but we
would ask them to come dressed in RED and bring in RED food to eat in their lunch boxes and bring in a
small donation for the children less fortunate than us. We will ask the school kitchen to prepare as much
RED food as possible for the children to eat at lunchtime and if you have anything RED to help decorate
the classrooms for that day we would be very grateful. i.e. flags, balloons, streamers, posters, red card
