Spectacular Christmas Performances

Both the infant (Countdown to Christmas) and junior (Scrooge) Christmas performances were outstanding! We are so lucky to have such talented children in our school.
Thank you to all parents and carers for their support with costumes etc and for all your very positive comments about the shows – they are very much appreciated by all.
Thank you also for your generous donations to the collection, we raised £287, which will go towards our playground developments.

New Parent Governor

I am very pleased to welcome Mr Terry Stewart to the Middle Street board of Governors. All vacancies for parent governors are now filled.

Christmas Display

Do go along to the tourist information centre and take a look at the Middle Street art club’s Christmas display: ‘Brighton at Christmas Time’ The information centre is situated in Bartholomew Square.

Argus Christmas Appeal

During December, Brighton Sea Life Centre is holding a present exchange for the Argus Appeal; follow these instructions if you wish to donate to the appeal. Bring an unwrapped child’s present to the Sea Life Centre with your parents and exchange the present (not your parents) for a free visit to the Sea Life Centre. Your kind donation of a present will be given to a child in need and will help to make their Christmas a happy one.

Jazmine and Courtenay with help from Mrs McGeachin are collecting old unwanted shoes in support of the Blue Peter Unicef Shoebiz Appeal. Blue Peter hopes to raise money to support children in Malawi. Please donate your old shoes in good condition to this appeal. Please bring your unwanted shoes in a carrier bag and place them in the donation box (Jazmine and Courtenay are preparing it at this very moment) in the entrance foyer.
