Welcome back to all the parents, students and staff, especially the new juniors and their parents. The Parents council will be using the school website to keep you all informed of any meetings and upcoming events that will occur throughout the school year.

Our first fundraising event will be bag packing in Tesco in Newcastle West on Saturday the 16th of September. We would greatly appreciate anyone who could volunteer their time on the day to help out. Volunteers will be allocated two hour slots between 10am and 8pm.

The annual school walk takes place on Sunday the 24th of September in The Demense at 11am. A sponsorship card will be sent home to each family in the coming week. Before we start there will be a Zumba warm up in the community centre with the lovely Kate Upton. Everyone is welcome back to the communtiy centre following the walk for freshly brewed tea/coffee and a well deserved bun. Please come along to support your school on this fun day.

There will be a clothes recycling collection on friday the 29th of September. Please donate your clean unwanted clothes also bed linen, towels, curtains, shoes, bags, belts and soft toys to the school before this date. All bags can be droppped into school at any time. Please tell your friends, family and neighbours about the clothes collection.

Monies raised from these events will go towards making improvements to the play areas in the school.

The above events plus any other business will be discussed at the first parent council meeting which will be held on September 6th in the school at 8pm. We would like to extend a warm welcome to everybody who would like to attend.
