Dear All,

Firstly, Invoicing: Please could all parents check that they have bursar@wingateschool.com as an accepted contact on your contact list to ensure easy communication. Some parents have reported that correspondence from this email address has gone straight to their Spam box.

Changes to calendar; We have just been informed that Monday 7th January is now an official Fiesta Day across Spain and the Canaries. The school will reopen on Tuesday 8th January. We will extend the school year by 1 day in June so the school will now close for the summer at 12.30 on Friday 28 June.

Uniform; Children must wear the school sweatshirt. They are not allowed to wear any other type of sweatshirt or hoody. The Uniform Shop has an ample supply of school sweatshirts which can be ordered through the school office should you need to purchase one. It is very important that all uniform is named – enabling us to return lost items.

The Junior Xmas postbox will be outside the Year 5 classroom as of Monday 3rd December. Please remind you child to pout the name and class number on the envelope so that it can be delivered. Children may also use this postbox to send their letters to Father Christmas.

We perform the play next week and tickets will be on sale from WEDNESDAY 28th NOVEMBER in the OFFICE. On Monday 3rd December, after the matinee performance, school will finish at the normal time. Children will need to be in school for BOTH TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY evenings. They will need to be at school for 6.15pm. The hall will be open from 6.30pm for parents to enter. The children will then need collecting at 8.45pm prompt. We appreciate that this will be a late bedtime for our younger children and as such they may arrive at school on Wednesday 5th, at breaktime. Thursday 6th is a Fiesta and school will be closed. More information will follow next week.

Many thanks,

Mrs L Estevez

Head of Juniors

WINGATE SCHOOL.
