Newsletter, 3rd April

Dear Parents

Thank you

Thank you to everyone who helped in any way towards our Lent Charity/Mothers’ Day Coffee Afternoon. We raised £115 for Marie Curie, and this will be further added to by the offertory in church on Friday.

Tomorrow:

  • Easter Breakfast: The Governors are holding an Easter Breakfast tomorrow morning from 8:15am. The cost is £2.50 per child, please see Mrs Kenyon if your child did not bring home a leaflet earlier this week.
  • End of Term: Our end of term service will be in church at 2.45pm on Friday. You are more than welcome to attend, and tea and coffee will be provided prior to the service for parents and friends arriving early. We will walk the children to church in time for the start of the service. At the end of the service, an offering will be taken for our Lent Charity, Marie Curie Nurses. At the end, children will be dismissed from church; please collect them from there. There will be no one at school. There will be no after school gymnastics.

 

On our return:

  • School Reopens: Tuesday 22nd April at 9am
  • Easter Communion On our first day back, we will celebrate Easter in school with a school communion service at 2.45pm. All are welcome.
  • After School Clubs: All after school clubs will resume as normal on our return.
