Sending Money
Unfortunately Dawn, our school secretary, is still off; this means teachers are having to count and record all money sent to school.  In order to minimise disruption to the teaching and learning of the children I am asking all parents to observe the following procedures:

  • send all money for the week on Monday morning
  • use a separate envelope for each child – provided by school for this purpose
  • clearly detail what the money you are sending is for
  • ensure a booking slip is enclosed for 223 club
  • please enclose the correct change if at all possible

Your support with this is greatly appreciated by myself and the teaching staff.
