17th Dec Newsletter 13

Dear Parents,

Here we are in what is planned to be a week of festive celebrations. Foundation Stage, Years 1 and 2 have been busily preparing and rehearsing, what I am sure will be wonderful performances. Years 3 and 4 have also been learning and practising Christmas Carols for their service at the Baptist church on Thursday
morning. All this along with year group parties will make for a celebratory end to the term.

Christmas Fair
Many thanks to the PTA for organizing a wonderful Christmas Fair last week. It was lovely to see so many families there and I hope you all had an enjoyable afternoon. This event also raised £1027 a phenomenal amount for the PTA on their first event of the year.

Food Bank — Need Project
We continue to support this worthy cause with donations of food, especially poignant at this time of year. We are hoping to collect enough food to have one more collection before the end of term. May I thank everyone for their kindness and generosity over the year.

Bed-Char — Prebend Charity for the Homeless
We have been contacted by the Prebend Centre for the Homeless who are seeking to give their clients a treat of chocolate over the Christmas period. If anyone would like to donate any chocolate this can be brought to the school office this week. Many thanks

Dinner Money for the 1st Half of Spring Term
Dinner money will be £52.20 7th Jan – 14th Feb (29 days)
£9 weekly, payable at the beginning of the week please. Fridays only £10.80 (6 days)
Cheques made payable to Templefield Lower School. Thank you

All that leaves is for me to wish all our children and families a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I would

Yours sincerely

L.Birch
