Dear Parents, Friends and Children,
The standard of work and commitment to learning is, at the moment, excellent. Walking around our school I have seen lots of superb work and it is wonderful to see so many of our new children (in Foundation and throughout the school) making such big contributions to school life; well done everyone for your hard work.
On a sad note, it has come to my attention that there was an incident last week where a large dog managed to escape from it’s owner and injured another dog very close to the school gates. The dog was tied to the perimeter fence but managed to wrestle free. Although local bylaws allow owners to walk dogs near our school, they must be kept completely under control and on a lead at all times. I have contacted the local Dog Warden and they have pledged to make some inspections of the premises next month. I would like to reiterate that dogs cannot be brought onto the school site – the only exception being dogs who are specifically tasked to support those with impaired vision. We all have a responsibility to exercise some common sense in the interests of the safety of our children.
On Tuesday Miss Todd’s Class (The Tigers) will enjoy their school dinner Theme Day (I know that lots of the children (and teachers!) are particularly looking forward to the Builder’s Breakfast!). I would like to remind Parents/Carers with a child in Miss Todd’s Class that they are welcome to join their children for school dinner on Tuesday, but you must ensure that you book a place on Monday at the very latest.
You will see that we have set dates for most of the Christmas festivities at school. Talking about Christmas may seem a little premature, but we want you to be able to manage your time so you can take part in some of the events during the school day.
I would like to thank everyone who has supported our drive to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support this week. We really appreciate your generosity and as someone who has benefitted directly from the amazing work of a Macmillan nurse I would like to thank everyone who has given their time, money and energy to making the Coffee afternoon a success. The success of our annual Macmillan Coffee Afternoon is very much down to Mrs Betchley and Mrs Riley, our unsung heroes who do so much work “behind the scenes” at Holy Trinity – thank you ladies!
Have a good weekend, I hope to see some of you for ERIC on Tuesday.
