Scholastic Book Fair

Our Christmas book fair will take place Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd of December. The books will be in the school on Thursday so the children will have a chance to see them first. The books will then be on sale monday and tuesday for each class, and parents are free to come in to view or buy between 1:30 and 2:45.

A great opportunity to give a gift of reading this christmas, and any money raised will be invested in new books for our school library.


Timetable for tomorrows Marathon

Thank you for the fantastic response so far. A few people were asking if they could come along and watch their child running so we have posted a timetable of when each class will aproximately be running.

If there any any sponsorship cards that haven’t been returned yet, they will still be accepted and entered in the draw tomorrow. Hopefully the weather will be a little nicer in the morning.
