Local author and illustrator Zoe Sadler visited school on Wednesday 7th June 2017. She read from some of her books and talked about the writing and illustrating process. The children all had a go at designing their own character for one of her projects. She has given all the children a bookmark which has a code to get a discount should parents wish to purchase a copy of her new book ‘Chasing Butterflies’, which she is crowdfunding to publish.

SCHOOL DINNER MONEY
We are very sorry to have to remind parents again but school meals must be paid for weekly in advance and not arrears. If you owe more than one week’s dinner money, you will be contacted and advised that your child will be unable to have any further school meals and that you will need to provide them with a packed lunch from home until the amount due has been paid. We are really sorry to have to do this but school simply cannot afford to have large amounts of money owing for school dinners.
WORD OF THE WEEK
WHOLE SCHOOL MINDSET
Minds are like parachutes, they only function when open.
