The Green Schools Committee has organised an Art Competition for Christmas.. Children are asked to make a Christmas decoration from recycled material. Closing date is December 8th.
Thank you to all parents who attended parent-teacher meetings last week and to the teachers who put a lot of work into preparation for these meetings. If for some reason, you were not in a position to attend, please contact the school as soon as possible.
