Dear Parents,


My news update this week is simply a thank you.


We have sent home the End of Year reports this week; we hope you are pleased with the information provided.  Reading each report was a pleasure; they are a wonderful way to celebrate each child.  Staff have worked incredibly hard and we would be grateful if you would complete the reply slip over the next week. 


Sports day today has been wonderful.  Mr O'Reilly has done an incredible job of organising it.  The children took part in more races and parents were able to see the children in field events as well as track events.  Thank you to Nathalie's family for buying the ice pops for the school;  a lovely treat and refreshing in the heat.  We had so much help with gazebos, giving the finishing places and scoring, thank you all.  Mr Selkald generously lent us his sound system so that we had some music as well as the announcements.  Tim De Meyer is a natural on the microphone and his commentary was enjoyed by everyone, thank you Tim. Thank you to FOFSA for providing water for the spectators and the fantastic hamper.  Finally thank you to the children and staff.  It is always wonderful to see them trying their best and enjoying sport and this afternoon was a real celebration of that.


We are looking forward to seeing lots of you at the Open Evening on Monday

5-630pm.  The children are excited about the French Cafe so we hope you will come into the hall for a cup of tea and cake and support the children.  We have the Christmas DVD available to buy for £5 at the Open Evening; thank you the team at Nirvana Spa who have produced it for us; all proceeds go to the school.  I will have  them out later next week before and after school to purchase as well.


Thank you for your continued support at this busy time of year.  We would be grateful if you would complete our parent survey over the next week using this link.


Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
