Dear Parents and Carers,

This week we welcomed the parents and carers of the North Town children starting in September to the school for a meeting. It was a really enjoyable evening and we are delighted to have another 60 joining us. I spoke during the evening about the North Town community and how supportive you are. We as a staff, are really grateful with how you work with us.

I was lucky enough to pop over to Queen’s this morning to watch the North Town cricketers competing in a tournament. Wow! What can I say? What a smashing group of children. A member of staff from Queen’s was really complimentary of our children with their positive attitudes, performance, and support for each other. A huge thank you to the parents who kindly supported with the event today and to Mr Venning and the staff at Queen’s for making it possible.

Next Friday is the Summer Fayre. Fingers crossed for lovely weather and a great turn out from 3:30 – 5:00pm.

There are so many events happening at the school over the next few weeks and we have listed them in this newsletter.

Have a smashing weekend everyone.

Mr Braund
