We have several events coming up over the next half term including the Ladies’ evening, the Christmas Nativity and the Carol Concert, led by our junior children, the Dance festival and the Alice In Wonderland performances.

Alice in Wonderland: The months of preparation and rehearsals are now drawing to a conclusion and we have two performances this month on Thursday 3rd November 2011 at 6pm and Friday 4th November 2011 at 2pm. Both performances will be held in the hall.

Operation Christmas Child: The deadline to return shoeboxes is now Monday 28th November 2011. Thank you to everyone who has brought in a shoebox so far.

Christmas Card Order: by now you will have received the pack with the order form for the card created by your child. The deadline is quite short as time is needed for printing and the last order day is Thursday 10th November 2011.

School council: Our new school councillors will be getting the opportunity to speak to the local councillors directly about our road safety issues when they visit school this week.
