Upcoming Retirements…

When people read today’s homework they will see that Mrs Harris and Mrs Earp are both retiring within the next couple of weeks. Mrs Harris will have her last day this Thursday (31st March) and Mrs Earp will leave at the end of term (8th April). It is amazing to think that Mrs Harris has been at this school for 27 years and Mrs Earp for 41 years!!! Most children in the school have been in Nursery so they know Mrs Earp – and every child who has had a school dinner or who has been to a school disco knows Mrs Harris.

I think it would be lovely for Mrs Harris, who is going to France, and Mrs Earp, who is going to Japan, to be able to read the school blog and be able to see how grateful we are to them. Please write something nice about how they have helped you and then for years to come the comments will still be on our blog and both Mrs Earp and Mrs Harris will be able to remind themselves of how much we miss them!

Fun at School for Comic Relief!

I hope that all parents have received a letter from school about how much fun we are going to have in the week of Comic Relief:

  • Tuesday 15th – Mad Hair and Bring a Bear
  • Wednesday 16th – Bun Sale (20p each) and Joke Assembly
  • Thursday 17th – Non-Uniform/Pyjama Day (£1)
  • Friday 18th – Dress in Red Day and Talent Show

We have already raised £240 with red noses but we hope that bun sales and non-uniform will push the total up beyond £500.

We hope that parents will donate some cakes – preferably things like cake bars that will keep a few days – and we also hope that some people might donate more than £1 for non-uniform as every penny helps.

We want people to have a really good time as well as raising money for good causes – which is what Comic Relief is all about.
