World of Work Week Cancelled

In response to reducing risk in relations to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we will have to cancel the World of Work week (Monday 30th March to Thursday 2nd April).

Thank you so much to the parents who volunteered to come in to school to talk about their jobs and skills. We will hopefully get a chance to reschedule in the future.

Kind regards,

Karen McDowall, Principal Teacher

Spelling Information Evening 6.30-7.30pm, Tuesday 18th February

A reminder about our Spelling Information Evening 6.30-7.30pm on Tuesday 18th February.

As you know, we changed our spelling programme at the start of the session and are now well underway with positive results. We would like to invite you to an information evening to further share how the programme works and what the children are experiencing in class. This will be a good opportunity for you to find out how to reinforce the strategies used in school at home.

If you are able to make the information evening, please complete the slip in your child’s bag (oldest child only).

Kind regards,

Karen McDowall, Principal Teacher
