Wednesday September 4th – Friday September 13th

Welcome back.  I do hope that you have all had some quality time with your children and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them back to School this week.

Message from the Friends: 

We would like to take the opportunity to welcome all our parents and pupils back to school.  We have a busy schedule of activities over the next term so please keep an eye out for notices in the weekly Newsletter, on the Friends Notice Board (at the entrance to the dining room) and the main notice board.

Your Committee are – Fiona Day (Monmouth and Lower Cerdic), Di Grossey (Upper Cerdic), Sue Osborne (Harris), Lindsay Rossiter (Chair and Treasurer) (Horner and Harris), Fiona Rowswell (Horner and Harris), Ruth Tucker (Harris) and Helen Tweedale (school representative).  We will work hard to raise worthwhile funds for the school but are always looking for helpers and volunteers at our events as well as ideas for new purchases that will benefit the children.
