Dear Parents/Guardians

 

I hope you have managed to have some good quality time with your children over the Jewish Holy days.  We are now in for a very busy rest of the term.  Please make sure your children have plenty of water to drink to keep them hydrated during the hot months of summer.

 

CLASS CHAT GROUPS

Please remember that these chat groups were set up to improve communication, to tell parents of information regarding school matters.

 

They are not a forum for personal opinions.  Please remember to use the correct channel of communication and if you have a query or complaint please see the person concerned.
