SPORTS DAY 14TH MAY 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

The school sports day is fast approaching and will be held on Tuesday 14th May.

As you will be aware, our playground space has been greatly reduced due to the building of our school extension. The grass areas where we would normally have the running lanes and circular track are now inaccessible.  We have explored other options however, risk assessments have shown and logistics such as toilets have ruled this out.

Due to the above circumstances and lack of space which drives us to be more conscious of health and safety around the event, we have taken the decision to have the upper school, primaries 4-7, in the morning of Tuesday 14th between 9.30 and 12.00 and the lower primaries, P1-3 in the afternoon between 1.30 and 3.00.

The activities planned will mean that our sports day is more of a “potted sports” rather than a competitive event but we have ensured that every child will have an opportunity to compete in a sprint event.

As always, you are welcome to come along and be spectators on the day! We hope for good weather but in the event of a very wet day our reserve day is Friday 17th May where the times would be altered to 9.00 – 10.30 for upper primaries and then 11.00 -12.15 for lower.

We are sure that we will have your support and understanding around these arrangements given the conditions that we are working under.

Regards

Karen Hancock, Heather Galbucci and Brodie Abbott

SCHOOL PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENTS

February 2019

Dear Parent/Carer

This year as part of the School Improvement Plan we are hoping to improve our playground. Many of the children have asked for a quiet area and a bench where they could sit and wait for a friend to play with them to be created. The Friendship Bench would require a coat of paint, so, if you have any outdoor wood paint you no longer use please donate it to the school where we can make good use of it to ensure out playground is bright and welcoming for everyone.

We would also like to repair out outdoor planters which are now beginning to look a bit tired and tattered. We are looking for people who can fix them and make them fit for new plants in the spring. Can you spare a couple of hours to help us get them looking great? This would mean so much to the children and greatly improve the appearance of our playground. Being able to play outdoors with friends is a key factor in ensuring our young people are healthy and happy and for them to begin to appreciate the world around them.

I know this sounds a lot but with your help we can begin to make a real difference to the playground and to the health and wellbeing of our whole school community.
