It has been a fantastic start to the year and I am sure the children are a little tired, as are the teachers. Please remember the ‘Meet the Teacher Evening’ on Tuesday night, 12 February, at 6:00pm, beginning with a short welcome in the hall.

PE day will be every Thursday this term so please send the children along in PE clothing. In the next few weeks I will be looking at the uniform and hope to have a few options around cost and practicality.

There are a limited number of sports shirts in sizes 6 & 8 available at school.  We will be ordering more and will advise once they are available. In the meantime, students should wear a top of similar colour (blue) and blue or black shorts or tights. Running shoes are essential.

I look forward to catching up with many of you on Tuesday evening.
