The Eco committee are holding a fund raising event to try to raise money for new benches. We are going to be selling jelly with optional cream and sprinkles on a morning break in February (date to be confirmed once we gather enough jelly). We are looking for donations of packets of jelly and spray cream and sprinkles.
The cost will be 50p for jelly and an additional 10p if they would like cream and sprinkles.
Date will be announced in due course
If you have a child who is coming up to 3 in the next year don’t forget to enrol them as soon as possible. We only have a few spaces left. Even if your child is not due to start in nursery until January or April 2021 you need to get their forms in now in order to reserve a place. You can click on the link below to register online or pop into the school office to pick up an enrolment pack.
Unfortunately we have yet another outbreak of head lice in the school. Could you all please have a check of your child’s head this afternoon when they get home and treat if necessary. Let’s try and get rid of them completely if we can
Gardening Club is NOT on this afternoon (due to the manky weather). It will start back on Thursday 20th February (after the February break).
We are very fortunate indeed to have yet another Scottish author come and visit us here at South Lodge. This time, we have Children’s author Barbara Henderson who will be here on Friday 24th January to talk about her work as an author and her smuggling novella Black Water.
Barbara is the author of three children’s novels and a children’s novella:
- Highland Clearances novel Fir for Luck, based on real events in Sutherland
- Victorian boy-on-the-run tale Punch, based on real events in 1889 and set against a lively backdrop of travelling entertainers
- Wilderness Wars, a contemporary eco-thriller for children asking: ‘What if Nature fights back?’
- Robert-Burns-inspired Black Water, a smuggling novella based on real events and featuring the poet.
If desired, children will be able to buy a book of their choice for £6.00 (RRP £6.99), and have it personally signed by the author on the day of the visit.
If you would like to purchase a book, could you please indicate which book you would like, quantity etc. and return the slip on the letter going home today by Thursday 23rd January so that we can let Barbara know how many copies of each book to take with her. Then on Friday, send in the correct money in a labelled envelope for your child to purchase the books.
