Family Newsletter Week 14

Dear families,

I hope you have had a lovely long weekend.

School is now looking extremely Christmassy, thanks to parents Kunslu and Esther who decorated our entrance hall last Wednesday. Special thanks to Kunslu for hand-making the delightful reindeer streamers and the natural fir wreath.

Today I’d like to tell you about the school’s new marketing campaign, which is now underway.

Our target is to fill the vacancies we currently have in some classes!

If you would like to help us fill the school, thank you for  considering these ideas:

  • Join our Facebook group (under ‘groups’: olivetreeschool, no the) and share the posts to those outside our community.
  • Follow us on Twitter (olivetreesitges) and re-tweet our posts.
  • Rate school out of 5 stars on google search.
  • Contact us at with any of your own great marketing ideas!

Thank you very much.
