Dear All,

Welcome back and happy New Year. I would like to welcome back Mr Whelan, who is the new Year 5 teacher and taught here 3 years ago.

Children will need to continue to wear their PE kits on THURSDAYS for PE.
Starting on Friday, La Palma and Tenerife children will need to wear their PE kit for the activities sessions every Friday until 24th January.

Can I remind everyone that the school uniform states that all children must wear school shoes and NOT TRAINERS. Already we have a few children who are wearing black trainers this morning - black trainers are not acceptable. If your child has come to school wearing black trainers, I will expect to see them wearing school shoes by next Monday.

Important diary dates;
Wednesday 19th February: Reports go home
Friday 21st February: School closes at 12.30pm for Half term break
Monday 2nd March: School reopens
Friday 27th March: Inter School Sports Day
Friday 3rd April: End of term

A message from Estrellas Theatre School:

We are currently casting for Aladdin the Musical at Estrellas Theatre School. Should your child wish to to be part of this fabulous Musical we are offering new students from the Wingate two free classes during the month of January.
A performing arts school has a variety of important benefits for children such as developing self confidence, imagination, empathy and tolerance, Cooperation, collaboration, concentration, communication skills, problem solving and most importantly to learn through fun. Please feel free to come along or call Mo on 647 844794 for more information . We look forward to welcoming you to our Estrellas family.

Finally, I am pleased to announce that during the christmas holiday Mrs Earl gave birth to a healthy girl. Both are doing well!

Have a good week,
Mrs L Estevez
