HAPPY NEW YEAR

Firstly can I take this opportunity of wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year. I hope you and your  families had a wonderful Christmas and Three Kings too.

Secondly please accept my apologies for being absent from school during December, my mother was extremely ill and the hospital advised me not to return, thank-you for your understanding in this matter.

I have given the office extra days and times in the next two weeks which I will be available to see any parent who wishes to come and talk to me as I was unavailable to see parents in December. Please telephone the office to make an appointment if you wish to see me. I will send a note home with your child if I would like you to make an appointment to come and see me. Many thanks again for your support at this difficult family time.

If it's possible could the children bring in a piece of tinsel (guirnalda) to decorate their headband for the concert. It can be any colour.
Many thanks.
