Yesterday you should have received the order forms for your child’s school photos. If you did not get it, please ask your child for it! Resits will be taking place on Monday (8th October), starting at 8.30am for pre school children. If you would like your child to have their photo taken again, please send us a text (166629) to let us know. There will be a separate order form and cut off date for these pictures.
Our Harvest Festival takes place on Friday 12th October at 2.45pm. All the children will be taking part, and everyone is welcome to come along to watch. As usual we are asking the children to bring in some harvest produce. This year we have decided to partner with the Jurby and Northern Community Initiatives scheme and will be using the produce donated to make a Community Harvest Lunch. This will take place at 1.00pm on Monday 15th October and everyone is welcome to come along. Further details are on the reverse of this letter.
Using Technology in School
On Wednesday 17th October we are holding an information afternoon about the use of technology in school and home. We will show you some of the ‘Apps’ that we use in school, so that you can, if you wish, install them on your devices at home, as well as talk about steps that school and home can take to help keep you and your family safe online. The afternoon will start at 2.30pm and last about an hour. It will then be repeated at 7.30pm for those who can’t attend during the day.
World Singing Day
Saturday 20th October is World Singing Day. Therefore we have decided to have a World Singing Day in School on Friday 19th October. This will culminate with a short concert with, we hope, some audience participation at 2.45pm. Everyone is welcome to come along, so please spread the word to your friends and neighbours. After the concert we will be holding a cake sale, with the aim of buying an acre of rainforest to help support this essential resource for the world. We would of course welcome donations of cakes for this.
