Secondary end-of-year party
Friday 21st June 8.00 – 10.30
There have been requests from secondary pupils and families to hold an end-of-year party / prom in the garden, as in previous years.
We need a group of secondary families to take charge of this project for it to go ahead.
We would families to organize it and supervise the evening. Families need to: prepare a dish to share, decorate the garden, supervise the party (at least two parents at a time), play the music through the sound system, and clear away afterwards.
If you can volunteer, please contact your class carer and the party can go ahead!
Bugsy Malone, professional photographs available
Karina, a photographer and ex-pupil of ours, took some lovely pictures of the play.
If you would like to buy some please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sadly, there was not enough interest in a Yearbook for it to go ahead. We had just over 50 requests but needed closer to 100 to justify the number of hours and the expense involved in making it.
