KS2 Australia competition: Tomorrow is the deadline for our first Australia
competition. Entries have been coming in steadily all week. There are some creative
and interesting pieces. The work of art can be in any medium but must use an outline
map of Australia somewhere in the finished piece. All work of a high quality will go on
display in the library corridor in our Australia gallery. The display will start to appear
next week.

School Council elections: Congratulations to the winning candidates, listed below, at
our elections last week and a big thank you, also to the children who stood for election
but were unsuccessful. We can only make our democracy work if we have people who
are prepared to participate in elections so I am pleased that our elections were well
fought. I am looking forward to working with the councillors to improve our school still

                  Thank you! For supporting the Cake Sale
A big thank you to everyone who supported the Cake sale last week, especially
 the pupils and parents who baked the cakes. We raised £169.45 towards our
                            new school sports kit.

                                School Photographer
 The school photographer will attend on Monday 31st October, the first day of Term 2, to
 take portraits of the children and family group photographs. Following some problems last
        year we have commissioned a different professional photographer this time.
If you would like a photograph taken which includes brothers and sisters who do not attend
 Holbrook he will begin taking family groups at 8 am. Please come to the school hall at that
time with your family assembled! Family groups of children who are all Holbrook pupils will
                     be organised in the normal way during the school day.

  Thank you to everyone who came and supported the AGM last
 week. It was a very positive meeting and we are very pleased to
