Foodbank and Harvest 2016

Pupils heard about the work of Foodbank in the local area during assembly today.  We will be celebrating Harvest by bringing in food items to donate on Wednesday 12 October. Please ensure you use the list of food provided by Foodbank – a copy has been sent home with pupils today as a reminder.

Thank you for your support.

Macmillan coffee afternoon and Non Uniform day – Friday 30th September

Many of us have been affected by cancer in some way. We want to support Macmillan by hosting a coffee afternoon on Friday 30th September at 3:15 at the Junior School.

We will sell cakes, hot and cold drinks and there will be opportunities to win prizes!

For the event we will also have a non-uniform day – in return for a plate of cakes.

Lots of recipes can be found on the Macmillan website if you wish to bake your own.

For any child who would like to enter a competition, there will be a prize for the best decorated cake (or cakes!) in each year group.

Everyone is invited, but if you are unable to come, please feel free to send in a monetary donation for this valuable cause.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

Author visit

Children enjoyed a visit from author E.R. Reilly today.  He will be back in school tomorrow selling his books.  Children will be bringing home order forms today.  If they would like a signed copy of one of his books, you will need to return the order form and money tomorrow (Thursday 22 September).
