Poetry Day

As part of our 100 year celebrations we are so excited to inform you that we have a ‘Poet’ coming to school on

Thursday, September 29th.

He will be in school for the whole day;  working with every class –

we are looking forward to it.

Parents are invited to come to school to join the children from 2.45pm-3.15pm for a ‘Celebration Assembly’.

We would ask, if possible, for a voluntary contribution of £1.50 per child or £2.00 per family.
