Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 22nd March 2019

25 March 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for supporting last week’s Comic Relief fundraising event. Your contributions raised £500; thank you very much.

There are only two weeks left of this term but we are still very busy. There are a wide range of visits and special events taking place over the next couple of weeks. Children in Year 4 are off on a residential visit to Dukeshouse Wood and Year 5 will be performing at Sage Gateshead as part of the Gateshead School Sports Partnership Dance Festival 2019.

There are various Easter activities coming up too. Parents of children in Early Years are invited to take part in Easter themed ‘stay and play’ sessions, children from Year 2 to Year 6 can attend the Easter disco (see below) and all children will be involved in special Easter assemblies.

There are other things going on in school over the next couple of weeks. Please do check the diary dates below for details of events for different year groups.

Have a great weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
