CPR and AED (Defibrillator) Course
A number of parents and staff completed this course last Saturday. A defibrillator will be installed at the front of the school after Christmas (January/February).
Paul Copeland and Val Clarke have very generously decided to sponsor new Boys’ and Girls’ School Jerseys. We thank them for their generosity and it is a lovely gift to receive before Christmas. We hope these jerseys will be worn with pride by many children for years to come. A big thanks also to the many parents who offered to pay a contribution towards the jerseys.
We are trialing a Homework Club for the next two weeks on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you would like your child to have a place in the Homework Club please contact Helen in the office tomorrow.
