Friday Bulletin – Friday 27th May 2016

Life in a primary school is an extremely busy one, with no two weeks the same. As we begin the half term break, it is a good time to take stock and reflect upon the last seven weeks. Our children have excelled themselves in a wide variety of activities and events: performing at the Sage, living life to the full on residential visits and pushing themselves to the limit at the recent rowing regatta, to name but a few.
I am particularly proud of their achievements in helping others. The children’s efforts in promoting the recent North East Cancer Run and the Ecuador Earthquake Appeal have raised over £1000 for research and helping those in need. Ideas, planning and organisation of fundraising events comes directly from our children and is a true reflection of what they feel passionate about. I am very proud of their community spirit and selfless motivation.
I wrote to you yesterday to provide a further update on our dining hall situation. Your patience during this frustrating time is greatly appreciated; I will endeavour to keep you informed, good or bad, and will do everything I can to ensure a satisfactory conclusion.
Thank you for your ongoing support; I wish you all a lovely half term break.
