    Newsletter October 21st 2016
    Dear Parents,
    It is hard to believe that half term is already upon us! It has been a very busy and productive few weeks here at school and we are already looking forward to the run up to Christmas.
    Charity events.
    Thank you to everybody whom has supported our Macmillan coffee morning.
    Open morning.
    We held our open morning on the 8th October and had a very successful outcome.
    I would like to thank the pupils who gave up their personal time to act as guides for the day- they did an excellent job and were a credit to us all.
    S7 Entry test.
    The entry test for September 2017 will be held on Saturday the 19th November from 9:00-11:30.
    Trips and visits.
    There have been several trips in the primary and secondary school and some more planned for the next half term – please check the calendar carefully.
    Punctuality in the morning.
    The school starts at 8:40 am. in the morning. Can parents please plan in advance to ensure that their children are on time as lateness causes class disruption and waste of lesson time. We do understand that there may at times be travel delays, however, some children are constantly late for school.
    The staff and I wish you all an enjoyable half term break with your families.
    All pupils return to school on Monday 31st October.
    Kind regards.
    Mr J Luis
