Fabulous Fete!

So many visitors commented on the lovely, friendly atmosphere at our fete today – it really was a wonderful day and,  with the sun shining warmly for most of the time, the last-minute rain didn’t dampen our spirits! Thanks to the PA for organising such a great event, and thanks to all who came – we hope you all had a great time! We think the pictures say it all….

No after-school fun swim today

Parents, unfortunately there will be no swimming for Years 3-6 after school today as Mrs McEvoy is unwell.  Children are, of course, very welcome to stay and join in the other fun activities organised by our after-school co-ordinator, or you may collect them earlier if you prefer.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
