Dear Parents,

I hope everyone enjoyed the mid-term. We have no homework this short week. Next week’s homework is below. 1st Class have now completed their standardised tests. The results will be included in your child’s report card for the school year. You should get those in the next week or two. We are encouraging all children in the school to cycle or bring their bike to school on Friday 15th of June 2017. Please bring your helmet, hi-viz and a working bike, scooter or flicker.

  • a helmet check to ensure your helmet is fitted properly.
  • a bike check to ensure your bike is safe to ride
