School finishes for Nursery children tomorrow 30th March and for all other year groups at 1pm on Wednesday 31st March. Please ensure that you have arrangements in place to have your children picked up promptly. Term resumes again on Monday 12th April at the usual time.
After Easter children can wear their summer uniforms, green check dresses or greys skirts/trousers/shorts and white school polo tops. School footwear is plain black shoes. As in my previous letter, children should have a lightweight shower proof coat for those days when the sun doesn’t shine!
For those children who bring a packed lunch, after half term we will be stricter enforcing the healthy lunch policy that states, no crisps except rice ones, no sweets, no chocolate or unhealthy foods. If these items are brought to school they will be left in the lunch boxes and returned home for you to eat at home. Please ensure your child has healthy lunch with enough nutritious food to support them through their day.
Apologies but once again, I am reminding you about safe and respectful parking, Montague Road is very narrow and a one-way system, it is nearly impossible to pick children up safely driving as this requires turning around in the road. Please consider a better way to pick up your children, maybe encouraging walking or cycling?
Though we have not been able to celebrate Holy Week and Easter as we usually would, I hope that you will be able to watch our Stations of the Cross service and our Easter blessing from Father Liam on our website. Your child/ren will be able to tell you how school has commemorated this special time and share some of the bible stories learnt.
I hope that you all have a wonderful Easter holiday and the weather stays kind so that some outdoor gatherings can go ahead. Please stay safe and I look forward to seeing you for our summer term.
Mrs M Walsh
