We got our first good look at our chicks today. They are a couple of weeks old but had been kept out of view by their parents. That all changed today when we got several glimpses at them moving around and feeding. How appropriate that this was on the day of the 6th class graduation, where our human fledglings are also getting ready to take flight!
Uniform Exchange... Parents are welcome to visit the SCHOOL HALL at 2pm or 3pm tomorrow THURSDAY or FRI to pick up any uniform items that might suit them for next year. Hall will close 4pm both days. THANK YOU to the Parent Association for organising this, and to parents for donating.
The Newport NS Parent Association and Social Club are calling all parents to join them for a night out to celebrate the summer holidays! This is not a fundraiser, but a social occasion for parents to get together. See the poster for a few more details...
Our lovely swift checks hatched last week and are being looked after by their parents until they are fledglings ready to fly, which will take about 3 weeks. 5th class pupil Katie Gilbert spotted the mum looking directly at the camera today so they took a quick snap. Thanks Katie!
Parents: Sports Days Due to an increase in local Covid cases and a staff shortage, we are restricting numbers for Sports Day. Senior Classes (3rd to 6th) will have theirs tomorrow Tuesday, and Junior classes will have theirs on Wednesday (all weather permitting) Children should wear their PE gear and have sun screen applied. IF POSSIBLE, pls also send in sack, tie or scarf, potato & spoon for fun events. Thank you.
Our very busy Parent Association, who support the school in so many ways, are organising a UNIFORM EXCHANGE next week. Anyone who wants to donate uniform items can drop them to the school (in bags) on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Once the PA have assessed the no. of items, sizes etc, they will advertise a date for parents to collect any items they may need for next year Remember, this is open to everyone and you do not need to swap items to take items.
It was lovely to see all the new children who will be starting school in September! They met their new teacher Ms Connolly and all their classmates, while their parents enjoyed refreshments in the school hall. We are looking forward to meeting them all again on 1st September THANK YOU to the Parent Association for looking after the refreshments.
