CHRISTMAS JUMPERS. Everyone looked fantastic in their Christmas jumpers on Christmas Lunch day! We raised an amazing amount of £153.20 for ‘Save the Children’. Well done to everyone. Thank you to Christine and all the kitchen staff for providing a wonderful Christmas lunch and to the lunchtime meal supervisory assistants, teachers and teaching assistants for their hard work in serving the whole school their Christmas meal.
CHRISTINGLE AT ST. PAUL’S CHURCH
The Christingle was a great success and the children behaved impeccably. A recording of the service is available to listen to or download on the St. Paul’s Church Website. www.stpaulsbarton.co.uk.
Can parents and carers please take the opportunity over the Christmas break to show children how to wash their hands thoroughly. Could children please be reminded of the importance of washing their hands after they have been to the toilet and before eating. This will hopefully reduce the spread of germs at home and in school. Thank you.
