Dear families,

Thank you to those who were able to make Meet The Teacher last Friday.  There was great excitement about the new school year. At last, the big day arrives tomorrow!

Staff are also very excited to be welcoming our pupils back and to get started on some beautiful learning projects. You will be invited to share some of the work created as term gets underway.

Week 1

 

Everyday equipment

A little checklist for you:

Primary

  • a hat & suncream (already applied to exposed areas)
  • trainers as everyday wear
  • a refillable non-plastic water bottle, labelled with name
  • lunch and a morning snack
  • (Years 3-6) a diary

Secondary

  • pencil case including: protractor, scientific calculator, pens, ruler, rubber, highlighters and pencils
  • a diary with dates in it
  • 3 A4 ring binders & 1 A4 flat cardboard file with elastic
  • a non-plastic bottle to refill

  • trainers (may be left at school): PE lessons are every day this year for Years 8-10
  • Years 8-9 only: a paddle bat on Wednesdays
  • no mobile phones

No nuts in lunches and snacks, please

We have children in school with a severe allergy to peanuts and almonds.
To avoid any incidents, we would ask you not to send in any nuts with your child.
We appreciate your help in this.

School Lunches

Please sign up with Saray at admin@olivetreeschool.cat before 9.00 tomorrow if you haven’t already.
Cancellations: if your child is sick, please contact Saray before 9.15 on 93 1886215 or by email her in order to cancel his/her school lunch. You will not be charged if you cancel before this time.
Thank you.

Permission forms- please sign and return in Week 1

The admin department will shortly send you a range of permission forms to sign via the digital app docusign.
It is a very quick and simple way to sign and return documents to us.
These include:

  • permission to use your child’s images in our school newsletter and website (online)
  • permission to use your child’s image on the parents’ Facebook page and Instagram
