After the rain of last week it is certainly nice to be writing this blog in better conditions –the summer certainly seems to be hanging on for a little longer – long may it last. Everyone is now very settled in school and it is difficult to believe that the children have only been back for a few weeks and are in new year groups. It just goes to show what a good job the teachers do in settling the children back into school life.
Next week there is quite a lot happening in school. On Wednesday the photographer will be in school taking pictures of family groups and all the children individually. As I mentioned in my newsletter this would be a good time to make sure your children make an extra effort with their appearance because it will be a whole year before the photographer returns again. After school, on the same day, some of the older girls will be taking part in a netball tournament at Mount Grace.
On Friday we are having our Harvest Festival in school and I look forward to seeing many of you there. The timeslots for the various year groups were included on the newsletter but I must emphasize that these are only guidelines and if you have two children in the school you can pick the slot that is most convenient to you and all your children can join you for that time. The PTA normally helps us run this event but they are having difficulty finding volunteers at the moment. If you could spare some time to support this event please either contact the PTA or let the school office know of your availability.
The school week then spills into the weekend because some of the older children are taking part in a football tournament on Saturday morning at Mount Grace. Even though it is a school event on a non-school day I am sure they will all have a good time.
With all that going on I will certainly be kept on my toes next week. I also have a couple of meetings to attend out of the school so I am sure that the week will fly. Enjoy your weekend.
