BRYN SCHOOL NEWSLETTER

OCTOBER 2015

 

HALF TERM ALREADY?

Well, where did those eight weeks go? It has been a busy time here at Bryn School and I would like to wish all our pupils a safe and happy half term break. We will be open for business again bright and early on Monday November 2nd.

 

SCHOOL DISCO

On Wednesday October 21st, the PTCA are hosting a disco with an historic twist. Children are invited to come dressed as someone famous from history. Entry is £2 and this includes a drink and a hot dog. Sweets can be bought for 50p. The Nursery to Year 2 disco is on from 4pm - 5:15pm and Years 3 to 6 will be strutting their stuff from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

 

TRAINING DAY

The school will be closed for In-Service Training on FRIDAY OCTOBER 23rd. This is due to statutory first aid training for the staff.

 

YEAR 6 SWIMMING SESSIONS

When we come back after half term, Year 6 are straight into their three week intensive swimming course (November 2nd to November 20th). They will need to have their swimming kit in school with them every day. As usual, the school is covering the cost of the lessons but we would appreciate a contribution of 50p per pupil per lesson towards the cost of transport.

 

SCHOOL DINNERS

I have been asked to remind parents that the cost of school dinner is now £2:30 per day. Meals for the week ahead need to be paid for on Monday morning. It is vitally important that your payment is placed in an envelope CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME AND CLASS. The envelope can be posted in the box in the main reception area. Please note that the new menu is now available on the Bryn School App and Website.

 

CHOIR AT THE SALVATION ARMY

I would like to say a big thank you and well done to the choir and their parents for ensuring that our concert with Charlie Green was a resounding success. The choir sang superbly even though we only had a very short time to prepare.
