It is important for all, especially children, to have a breakfast. Sometimes that might not happen due to various circumstances—we have some limited supplies of muesli bars/fruit that we can offer on these occasions. Your child should simply, quietly, and in confidence, ask their teacher.

Maurice St:
The Maurice St car park has been extended and a NEW path has been laid. Please use and encourage children to use this. More alterations will take place to improve this area.

Golden Rule: Be honest

Room 14 -Haiku Poems
Great blue sky, white clouds,
Majestic beauty such beauty,
Now the sun is here;
Nature so graceful,
You are so peaceful and wise,
Yet you do not speak.

The school day drags on,
The teacher looks at his watch,
It is home time soon.

Strawberry red with spots
Nice, sweet, juicy, yum, my favourite,
Grows in the gardens;

Summer is wonderful,
Flowers bloom in summertime,
Children like summer too.

Beautiful pictures,
Painted white, blue, red and green,
Hanging on the wall;

The sun is shining
Time to go out for fishing,
Weather is fine here.

Car parks:
Are for STAFF only. I cannot stress how dangerous it is to have parents driving into the school grounds to drop off or collect children. Please walk in—we would be delighted to see you and greet you.
In cars—often—small children are “invisible” and drivers cannot see properly when reversing - so please help us prevent a possible tragedy by adhering to the rules. They are rules for our
children’s safety
