Headteacher's Comment

School is now back to almost 'normal' following Strom Arwen. The areas that still need attention are safe but will now wait until after Christmas to be attended to.

Christmas is fast approaching and we have a full program of activities, including Nativity performances, Christmas dinner, Christmas parties and Christingle Service. Unfortunately, due to Covid, we are unable to invite you all in to enjoy the festivities with us. However, we will be sending out our productions via YouTube, as we did last year.

We hope you enjoy the run up to Christmas and are able to join us on the last Friday - 17th December for our Christingle Service at St Paul the Apostle.
