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
