- Topic – OLM is 60 in 2019….what is our vision? How can we as parents be involved?
This will be a very informal, friendly chat to hear what you as parents / carers think. It will also be a good chance to meet parents you may not have spoken to before and hear different points of view. As they say, it’s good to talk!

BEST WISHES to all in our school community and beyond who are observing the holy month of Ramadan, which started on 27 May.
We know it is a hugely important time for our Muslim families as they come together with family and friends in fasting, reflection, prayer and thinking of those less fortunate – extra charity is given in this month.
For those of us who are not familiar with Ramadan, Muslims believe that during Ramadan, the Qu’ran, the holy book of Islam, was revealed to mankind through the Prophet Muhammad. Many therefore devote extra time to the study of the Quran during this time. The end of Ramadan brings the festival Eid-ul-Fitr which will fall around 26 June.
Ramadan Mubarak to you all!
Please hand in nearly new toys, teddies and children’s books this week for our summer fun day – Saturday 3rd June 1 – 3.30pm.
Any unwanted bottles of wine, ketchup or shampoo ? All donations for our bottle stall gratefully received.
Please bring any home baking to the school on Friday until 8pm,
Thank you for your support.
