December 2019

Christmas Coffee Morning

The month of December started in school with a festive coffee morning . The whole school sang a Christmas medley during the morning and a group of our talented musicians put on a performance with piano, violin and voice.  The morning raised £293, thank you to all the parents who helped out and to everyone who came along.  Thanks also to the Co-operative and Tesco who gave us mince pies and shortbread to use for the morning.

Tea Towels

The Parent Council have school tea- towels on sale for £4 each.  Drawings of all the pupils (and staff) are on the towel.  An ideal Christmas present!

Play house

Ava-Poppy’s Grandad has been working very hard on turning the broken down green house into a play house for the children.  It is a remarkable transformation and the play house will be open for play in the New Year.  The money for the refurbishment came from the Kavli Trust grant that paid for the outdoor classroom and the Peace Garden.

 

P5 Barcaple visit

 

A reminder to return permission forms/deposit by Friday 13th December to take part in this overnight stay in January.

There will be no other options on the day, therefore if your child chooses not to have Christmas Lunch, please provide a packed lunch instead.
