Sainsburys – Active Kids
Active Kids Vouchers will be available from Sainsbury’s stores and petrol stations commencing Wednesday, 29th January. We will be collecting these vouchers and collection boxes will be placed in the School Reception area.

Car Parking
We remind people to please park sensibly and safely around school to ensure we avoid accidents.

There are a number of parents who are continuing to park unsafely and without thought to residents. The safety of all children needs to be paramount and to ensure that this happens, we have asked for help from the police and traffic wardens.

Lost Purse
A purse was found in the school playground last week. If you have mislaid your purse please come to the School Office with details of the purse and contents. Thank you

Thought of the Week
“Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power”
Clint Eastwood, American actor, film director, producer, composer and politician.

I can try hard, respect others and maintain good self-discipline at all times.

Best wishes,

Miss Sheila Harrison
