Head Teacher's message 9th October 2015.

Weekly news

Dear parents and children,

It has been an action packed week. Years 5 and 6 took part in a rugby taster session. Thanks to Mr Stones and Mr Hale for working with the children. Year 6 also worked with Mr Harris on a First Aid course and year 1 and 2 gardeners planted some crocus bulbs.

The highlight of the week will be our Fijian afternoon. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the children and parents who are taking part in this.

Reminder

Due to the fantastic response to the parents' workshop advertised to take place on 13th October this will now be for parents with children in Years 1-6. There will be an additional workshop especially for FS parents on 10th November. We look forward to seeing you there.

Have a good weekend.
Mrs Mason  

School Council

The members had lots of ideas about fund raising for the recent flood in Dominica. Archie suggested that we link this with Harvest Festival. The council agreed that this was a good idea. 


We are asking everyone to bring in a small item of food which will go in our boxes ready to be collected by the Bielefeld Tafel organisation. Father Brutus will join us for a special assembly in the last week of this half term. 


Also on Friday 23rd October School Council would like everyone to come in clothes of your choice- you could even dress up in a costume! Please bring a euro donation.


At playtime School Council will also be selling small cakes for 50 cents. If anyone is happy to help by sending in come cakes we would be really happy to receive them. All of the money raised will be donated to the flood appeal.
 Thank you


The power of the 5 R’s to make me a life-long learner.

The school council met this week to talk about how we can display the 5 R’s around school. They have decided to hold a poster competition for children in FS 2 to Year 6. There will be a wide range of prizes (current suggestions are pencils, books, sweets, chocolates, toys, stuffed animals and a choice of a special job.) We will tell you more next week.
