Our annual Book Fair will take place on Monday 11th March, Tuesday 12th March and Wednesday 13th March. Parents of children in P1-P3 are invited to help their children select books from the Book Fair from 8.45am-9.10am in the Assembly Hall. There will also be an opportunity this year for all children to come to the Fair with their parents on Tuesday evening from 7-8.30pm. P3-P7 children will be allocated a time throughout the school day to attend the Fair with their teacher and purchase books. The Book
Fair encourages children to read and helps fund new resources for our school.
A reminder to advise you that we have children in school who suffer from a severe allergy to nuts. Children with this condition
may have a severe reaction, which could prove fatal if they come into contact with nuts. Consequently, I would ask that no nuts or related products (e.g. kinder bueno, nutella spreads, peanut butter etc.) are brought into school for your child’s break or packed lunch. Your agreement with this and compliance could prevent a life threatening situation developing. I am sure you will appreciate the reasons for making this request and trust that you will give it your full co-operation.
Car Park Safety/Keeping Our Children Safe
Once again we would like to remind everyone to drive safely through the school car park! When picking children up please park in appropriate spaces and leave a clearance for traffic to keep flowing carefully! Do not park on the zebra crossings and be cautious of children using them! When parking on the Harbour Road, please leave spaces clear for children to cross with care with the Patrol Officer.
Health Week 4th—8th March
We are having a health week in school next week,
Monday 4th March – Friday 8th March.
Every day we would like the children to bring in a
different coloured fruit or vegetable:-
Monday – RED
Tuesday – YELLOW/ORANGE
Wednesday – PURPLE/BLUE
Thursday – As many different colours as you can!
Friday – GREEN DAY!
We will be doing our mile a day walk in school. We would like to encourage each child to walk at least part of the way to school. All children bring water to drink during the day. P4—P7 bring a fruit break to be eaten at 2.05pm.
Friday will be our GREEN DAY and we would like all the children to wear green to school and bring a green break! Children are asked to make a voluntary donation towards purchasing a compost bin and containers to help with recycling. We hope that the children will
enjoy taking part in this activity and be more Eco Aware.
If any of you have changed address, telephone number, mobile telephone number or any other contact please let the school office know as soon as possible. It is essential that we have this information correct for emergencies and texting services.
Please remember that School Dinners in the Canteen are £2.60 per day. Could you please send correct money in on a Monday for the week in an envelope with days intending to take dinner marked clearly. We would also ask that you would send After School Club money in on a Monday for the week in a separate envelope with days intending to attend marked clearly.
After School Club is £3 per day.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Thank you to all who were able to attend their parent teacher meetings in February. If you still need to speak to your child’s class teacher on any issue, please contact the General Office to make an appointment.
