Bryn Offa Newsletter 15th April 2015 Rockwell Lane, Pant, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 9QR Tel: 01691 830621 [email protected] [email protected] www.brynoffa.shropshire.sch.uk The very first email I picked up after the Easter break left me with a huge smile on my face. Isabelle and Elsey-Mae Hanrahan have been working really hard in the Spring Term to raise money for the school fund. They started by knitting some Easter Bunnies and Chicks to sell to relatives and children in the school. Then they did a sponsored bike and scooter ride around the park. And to round off their fantastic fund raising marathon, they had an afternoon tea where they made and sold cakes. Altogether they have raised a hundred pounds for their school. A fantastic effort and one they should be thoroughly proud of. Well done girls. Still on the subject of fundraising, just before the Easter break BOPA had a cake sale to raise money and we also had the Easter Cards on sale in the local shop. The cake sale raised £54.50 and the cards raised £115. Hopefully BOPA will be able to update everyone shortly with the plans for the playgrounds. As we are now in the Summer Term we have to consider sun safety for the children during break times. Please ensure that the children bring a hat with them to school and that sun screen is applied on appropriate days. We have also just ordered some more water bottles (dishwasher safe) which we will shortly have for sale to encourage the children to drink more water during the day. Clubs start next week, and you should have received the letter yesterday to sign your children up. Please ensure this is returned by Monday morning. As the first session of gardening is on that same Monday, if you select this club for your child please telephone the school between 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock to find out if your child has got a place. The multisport club is very Stars of the Week oversubscribed this term so we have created Ted Lewis for thinking of good safety two groups (one before half term and one measures at Forest School. after) and unfortunately not all the children Sienna Arnett for helping to make two will get a place. thrones for Class 1’s Castle.
