Festival Parade

What a fantastic turn out for the parade! It was good to see so many families all looking very colourful despite the weather. The Samba band played brilliantly, as did everyone else who joined in with the band as we marched through the streets. Our palm trees caught the eye of an organiser of a healthy food fayre. She liked them so much she has asked to borrow them to use at their event. Check out the Middle Street website to watch a short video of the parade. Thank you to every one who helped prepare for the parade and a special thank you to Mrs Purdy and Mr Brazil for all their hard work with the organisation, props and music.

Headlice Alert!

We are still having a problem with headlice. I think they like the warm weather! Please check your child’s head for the little beasties and get rid of them. Please remember to treat the whole family. If you want advice on treatment please let us know and we will put you in contact with the school nurse.
