Dear All,

A busy week for the end of this half term.....
Wednesday 23rd : Year 3 will be going out on their trip. They will need to wear their smart, normal uniform. They DO NOT need to bring any money.

Thursday 24th and Friday 25th will be Photograph days. Family photos will be on the Friday. Please can families that wish to have their photos taken by the school photographer on the 25th of October contact the school office to make a booking.

Friday 25th October is Open Day and school finishes at 12.30pm. Please be prompt in collecting your children so that teachers may have their lunch before starting their appointments.

As Thursday is Photograph day, all Junior children will need to wear their normal school uniform and NOT their PE kits. PE kits will also NOT be needed for Friday, as there will be no Activities.

School restarts on Monday 4th November.

Your children are all invited to a fun educational Stargazing event on Saturday the 9th November. This is an hour and a half long talk by a very knowledgeable star enthusiast who will talk about the different constellations with some fun facts and myths pertaining to each of them. For all the children studying planets and star systems in school it will be a wonderful way for them to see the celestial bodies for themselves and for all others and parents!) it will just be a fun evening out. Have a look at the flyer for details.

In the tourist sector this normally costs about 50-75€ per person, but as a special offer for Wingate he has offered to do this for only 20€ per person and all parents can come for free! There is no age limit, but for everyone to enjoy it, all children must be able to sit quietly for the duration so we suggest Juniors and upwards.

We have secured the football pitch for this event and all lights will be switched off to enable us to get a lovely view of the sky. . We will meet at school 15 minutes beforehand and walk down together. (if the weather is not good we will postpone the event until another time or give a refund)

Please sign up at the school office.

See you there!
