Bicentenary Celebrations

The children have all worked very hard this week in preparation for the celebrations tomorrow. We hope to see as many of you here as possible.
Mr Dyer has worked non-stop preparing lots of photos and information about the school over the past two hundred years. It is going to be a day to remember and we have had lots of inquiries from ex pupils who would like to come along and have a look around the school. Mrs Walker took a phone call from a lady who used to come to the school and is over eighty years old, she is hoping to visit the school on Saturday.


If you were not able to bring in your cake donations today then please bring them along with you tomorrow.
