 CHRISTMAS DINNER AND JUMPER DAY!

Thursday 19th December will be both Christmas Dinner Day and Christmas Jumper Day!

 

If your child would like the school Christmas Dinner, please complete the slip they have brought home today and return it by the date specified.

 

If they don’t want the Christmas meal, they must bring a packed lunch on that day as no other option will be available.

 

Everyone is invited to wear their Christmas jumper (or hat or antlers….) on that day and to join in the fun!

 

PANTO VISITS

The Foundation Phase children (Nursery to Y2) will be experiencing a performance of “Beauty and the Beast”  on Friday 6th December.

 

Years 3 and 4 are visiting ‘The Gate’ in Roath on Thursday 12th December to watch a production of “Sherlock Holmes’ Christmas Twist”.
