Nut allergy/Information

As there are children within the school who suffer from nut allergies, please avoid sending your child to school with snacks that contain nut products. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Gold medallist – visitor

The whole school was lucky to have a visit from Louise Rennix, Gold Medallist winner for Judo, on Monday 10 September during our assembly.

She presented a power point presentation that included Health & Wellbeing. The presentation showed us her diet and how to eat healthy. It also gave us an insight into her exercise routine.

Louise demonstrated her Judo moves and told us all that we could achieve anything – if we stick to it!

We were all left feeling inspired and ready for a new challenge.

Scholastic Book Fair

Books will be on sale to the children from Friday 28 September – Wednesday 3 October. There will be an allocated time for parents to view our Book Fair (further details to follow). This is a great way for the school to raise funds and for the children to see new and exciting titles.

Please support our Book Fair.

Flu Immunisation

Please note that there is 22.9% of children NOT returned their flu immunisation forms. If your child’s form is not returned to school for the pick-up date (week commencing 17 September) they will not be able to get their immunisation at the school. You will have to arrange this through your GP.

Thank you.


The first few weeks of P2/3 have got off to a great start as we settle in to our new class. We have enjoyed exploring lots of new literacy activities and have even had a chance to curl up on the couch with a good book in our cosy corner. Take a look!
