Remember, remember, the bonfire party on Friday!

A reminder that, weather permitting, our Parents’ Association Bonfire & Fireworks Party will be held this Friday, 3rd November, in the school grounds. This is a popular annual event for our school families and friends and we hope many of you will be able to join us for the fun!

As all children must be accompanied to the event by an adult, any pupils who would like to take part but who usually attend after-school club should be collected by their parents and taken to the event.  After-school club will also take place as normal.  The event is free to attend and a barbecue tea, toffee apples and other tasty delights will be available to buy whilst watching the bonfire – lit at 5.00pm – and the fireworks display.

Please ensure that anyone who wants to hold sparklers wears gloves and understands the importance of safety around fire and fireworks.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The pictures are from last year’s party.
