Dear Parents

As I write there is torrential rain outside and summer seems merely a distant memory.  Thankfully, the rain held off yesterday when we posed for our whole school photograph.  My highlight had to be watching our Year 8 Prefects accompanying children from the Nursery & Infant School across the road (their teachers were there too!).  We’re one school and this was a very vivid demonstration of the strength of being part of a community of learners from 3-16 years.

Open Morning – Saturday 30 September

It’s our Open Morning in a couple of weeks.  Please continue to encourage friends and relatives to come and see us in action.  Thank you for facilitating the children being here to help on the day too. If you are available to help serve coffee to prospective parents, the PTA would love to hear from you (contact can be made via the school offices).

Macmillan Coffee Morning

This will also take place on Saturday 30 September in the Prep & Senior School Hall.  Further details are attached but, in short, we would love you to bake until your heart’s content and then join us to eat the cakes!  I can’t think of a better way to spend my Saturday!

Old Sports Kit

Monday is the last day we can receive donations of old kit.  Thank you to those who have supported our endeavours thus far.

PTA Events:

Cheese & Wine Evening – Thursday 21 September

This event is open to all parents and we’d love to see you there.  It’s an informal opportunity for us to meet and chat.  There’s a reply slip attached which will help us know whether to buy a glass or a gallon of wine.

AGM – Wednesday 4 October

You are all invited to the AGM for your PTA.  Please do come along to find out more about the PTA and the events we’re planning.  Further details about the AGM and more generally about the PTA are attached.

Golf Day & Supper – Saturday 7 October

I know many of you will disagree with Mark Twain’s sentiment when he said “Golf is a good walk spoiled”!  The PTA certainly disagrees and has arranged a golf day followed by an informal supper for next month.  Please do support this event – details attached.

The rain is slowing…let’s hope this is a positive sign for the weekend!

 

With best wishes
