Family Newsletter Week 15

Dear families,

A very active few days last week, with a history trip to the textile museum in Terrassa, a beautiful Singalong by Saplings and Years 1 &2, and Parents’ Evening with your child’s teachers.

And we thank the Events Committee and supporting parents for organising two fabulous discos last Friday night. Both primary and secondary discos were a huge success!

Thank you for a term’s hard work!

Today, I would like to thank all our teaching staff for their dedication and long hours over the last term. They work tirelessly and never say ‘no’!

We are also indebted to our dedicated parent volunteers for supporting our learning in the classrooms.

We thank Carlos, Saray and Ursula, our finance and admin team, for making school go like clockwork!

We are also very grateful to our lovely dinner ladies, Maria and Montse, who take good care of our pupils every lunch hour with astounding patience and good humour.

And we could not do without our efficient maintenance team, David and Micki, who are forever fixing all the little things that go wrong around school.

We would also like to thank the Events Committee for their smooth organisation of school-wide events this term.

And we are also grateful to our Class Carers, who have organised our smaller-scale events and gifts.

This week, we continue on our magical run-up to Christmas.

We have some lovely events to share with you before we break up on Wednesday at 4.00.

 

Choir T-Shirts

Would you please find your child’s choir t-shirt and send it into school tomorrow, to avoid any last-minute memory-lapses on Wednesday morning?

New families: we have ordered a choir t-shirt for your child. Please collect it from Saray. The price is approximately 10 euros.

The Olive Tree Mobile Soup Kitchen

Can you join our Soup Kitchen for the homeless?

Every Christmas, a rota of OT staff and families take soup/coffee and sandwiches to the local homeless-  usually in Sitges, though we have occasionally been to Vilanova, too.

It is best to make food for about 8-10 people. Pork is not recommended, as there are usually Muslims among the local homeless. The homeless usually congregate on Plaza Espanya, under the railway bridges (in Poble Sec and by the Oasis), and on the railway station steps.

If you have a little time this Christmas, we thank you for signing up on the rota in the hall.

Very much looking forward to these lovely last few days in school!

Audrey
