Cold Weather

Just a reminder that the weather is getting colder. As they say in Colorado, there is no such thing as bad weather - just bad clothing!  Please make sure that your child has an appropriate coat as well as labelled hats, gloves and scarves. We don't want to finish a great year with lots of our students getting coughs and cold.

 

Football Update

The next football match for the Girls team takes place on Tuesday, 27th November. At the end of the season, we will send out a season report! On the theme of football, our Boys team played last Thursday against Southbank School and won 8-0. Well done!
