Well done to everyone who came out to support our Family Walk yesterday. A super turnout from parents and their friends & relatives. With the weather staying on our side we thoroughly enjoyed our little trek (approx 3k – well done to all the small kiddies that tackled it) and our refreshments and treats afterward. Due to its great success we will definitely run another in the New Year.

Our first social event is our Family Walk and it will go ahead this Sunday October 16th at 3pm. We will meet at the school carpark at 2 45pm to hand out hi vis vests (if you already have one can you bring it along) and the walk will begin at 3pm. The route is up to the woods and back to the school hall – a short walk to begin with. Refreshments will be served in the school hall after the walk so pop in for a deserved cuppa. Look forward to seeing you there and of course bring your friends/ relatives too, all are welcome. PARENTS ASSOCIATION
