Future open days that I have received dates for:
Stockport Grammar School open mornings – Saturday 12th November, 10am-12noon

Games and puzzles
If you are having a clear-out and have any old board games or jigsaw puzzles that are suitable for use in school on wet dinnertimes, we would gratefully receive them as we are looking to increase the range of activities on offer. Many thanks.

Band
We are delighted that Mr Stonehouse, from Bramhall High School, is able to work with us this year with the aim of getting our band up and running once more. We are hoping that the children will be able to work towards putting on a concert at school and/or taking part in a concert at the High School.
If your child plays a brass or wind instrument, violin or percussion then we hope that they will take part on Fridays between 2pm and 2:30pm. This will start this week, on Friday 14th October.
For more information please contact Miss Harrison, Miss Wilson or Miss Dean.
