Parent Council Bingo

The Parent Council are holding a Bingo evening at Paton’s bowling club on the 8th of March. Tickets are £2 each, if you would like tickets then please complete a form and return it along with payment as soon as possible. Tickets for the event are limited and will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

In order to maximise the amount of money we raise for the school through this event, we are appealing to the parents of Redwell for any unused or unwanted Christmas gifts, or anything else you have that would be willing to donate to our bingo and rattle prizes. Any gratefully received donations can be handed into the school office.

Children In Need – SPOTACULAR

Primary 2 and Primary 6 will be working really hard in the next couple of weeks to organise ways to support and raise money for Children In Need.

From the 6th of November we will be selling Pudsey/Blush glow in the dark wristbands and Pudsey glow in the dark keyrings. The wristbands and keyrings will be £1 each. Children will initially we restricted to purchasing one item each until every class has been visited and all children have had the opportunity to purchase something. Children will then be given the chance to purchase more of they wish.

On Friday 17th of November the whole school is invited to join in by coming to school dressed in a SPOTACULAR way, for a £1 donation. Primary 6 and Primary 2 will also be running a ‘Guess Pudsey’s Birthday’ competition, along with some other activities that are still to be confirmed, so please keep an eye on Twitter for updates.

The hunt for the round pound is also on. The round pound went out of circulation on 15th of October but there are still millions to be found. These can still be donated to Children In Need, so if you have any at home that you would like donate please send them into school in an envelope clearly marked as ‘Children In Need’.

Thank you for your continued support.

Events

This session we have incorporated school events into our curriculum to provide children with a further opportunity to develop their life skills. They will take on leadership roles, demonstrating themselves to be confident, responsible effective and successful contributors within our school community.

School Harvest Assembly

Friday 29th of September

An invitation is extended to all parents/carers, grandparents and friends to make a contribution to our Harvest Assembly on Friday 29th of October which will have a Harvest Theme.

During the week beginning 25/9/17 we will be collecting various items (mainly packets and tins of groceries or fresh fruit and vegetables) which will be donated to The Gate charity. Please send any donations to the school office by Friday 29th September.

Unfortunately due to lack of space in our school hall, we can only accommodate our pupils for this particular Assembly but we will post photographs of the celebration on our Twitter feed.

We look forward to receiving a ‘bumper harvest’ next week. Many thanks!
