Great news – the summer BBQ will be going ahead as planned on Friday 5th July (5.30pm – 7.30pm). A band has been booked, there will be the BBQ, bar and gin bar, a pudding stall, ice-cream, coconut shy, penalty shootout, games, glitter tattoos and nails and craft stalls.
Please let the school office know if you are able to help on the day. We will need help with setting up in the afternoon, manning stalls and clearing away afterwards. Thank you to the parents who have stepped forward to help organise this popular event.
Please note there will be no Cool Kids on Monday 24th June
Sports Day will be held on the Regatta Field next Tuesday (25th June). Events will start at 9.45 am with children completing activities in their Houses (Gorge (Green), Severn (Blue), Wrekin (Red) and Bridge (Yellow)). If you do not know your child’s house check with the class teacher or school office. Classes will also take part in sprint races, the marathon and there will be a Parent’s Race.
If the children have t-shirts in their house colour, that would be great, but if not, we will have some coloured badges or bands for them. Please remember to send their school uniform for them to change into at the end of the morning along with hats, sunscreen and water bottles.
The weather forecast over the weekend does indicates rain so a final decision will be made on Monday (24th) on whether to go ahead.
Please remember we have a very important meeting next Tuesday 25th June 6.15pm at the Kids Club Rooms. We will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting to discuss the future of Kids Club.
Many committee members will be stepping down and we are urgently seeking replacements to ensure that Kids Club can continue next year. You need to show your support and willingness to help Kids Club continue by turning up to this meeting. Children are welcome and can entertain themselves in the Kids Club TV room if you are happy for them to do so.
Thank you to those who have expressed an interest in being on the committee and I hope we can turn that willingness into committee positions. Without at least 6-10 people committing to supporting Kids Club we will have to start winding down proceedings.
I look forward to seeing you there.
