September (2) 2013 Newsletter
Posted on 24th September 2013
To Mrs McGuire and her husband as they are expecting another baby! This is great news for them, the newest member of the family is due in February 2014!
To the PTA and all of you! The PTA raised a whopping £14000 last year - an outstanding amount so it is no surprise that the PTA have been awarded a Good Practice Silver Award by PTA-UK. Thank you and well done to all work so hard to make events fun and raise vital funds.
Do make a note of these PTA dates for the coming year:
SCHOOL STRIKE- OCTOBER 1st 2013
Abbey Gates will be fully open on the above date.
F1 LUNCHTIME COLLECTION
If you pick up a child at lunchtime from F1 please DO NOT ALLOW your child to play on the playground equipment before you leave. Our Midday team are supervising our full time children and this is made difficult when F1 pupils are still in the playground after 5/10 or even 20 minutes. Please alert anyone who may pick up your children on your behalf that they must leave the school after picking up the children - SORRY AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
I am proud to say that all newly elected School Councillors look a “great bunch”! Miss Allison Long will be leading the Council this year and she and the councillors will be writing to parents with updates shortly - watch this space!
I am thrilled with the news that all FS/KS1 children will be entitled to a free school dinner from September 2014.
Children who have packed lunches are expected to bring a “healthy” lunch - no crisps/chocolate etc… Mrs Tongue, our chef, will be running a competition re healthy packed lunches and will be writing to you soon.
The following PTA events will be taking place:
Tu 16 Oct 7.45 pm PTA meeting
Fr 8 Nov Fashion Show
Fr 15 Nov Quiz Night
Fr 6 Dec Christmas Fair
Su 6 July Summer Fair
Further information will be sent out to you in due course.
