Dear families,

Congratulations to Year 4 pupils, families and Clare for their hugely successful Promises Auction on Friday!

A range of wonderful items was auctioned including VIP tickets to a Barcelona match, an evening of babysitting and other creative ideas. An astonishing 980 euros was raised in about 45 minutes!

We are very grateful for parents’ generous donations and bids. We also thank our dedicated Events Committee for their lovely refreshments bar.

All money raised will go to Year 4’s two chosen charities: Save The Children and the CRAM.

Our Inspiring Speakers in Secondary were Gabriel, Lulita and their little son Antonio, a homeless family from Sitges who came and told us their personal story. Pupils have been moved to think creatively about solutions to homelessness in the next term.

We thank Sonia Tarrida for liaising with the family and introducing them to us.

Gastric virus

Last week, we had a high number of pupils and staff suffering from a gastric virus. To stop the virus spreading further, please keep your child at home if s/he had had vomiting or diarrhoea in the night. Please let 24 hours go by after the last bout / symptom before sending your child back into school.

We need a critical number of staff working in order for school to function; this is jeopardised by having contagious pupils in school. Thank you for protecting the whole community in this way.

Have a great week, everyone,
Audrey
