Last week of term....

In many ways it is  hard to believe Term 1 is fast drawing to a conclusion.

Thank yo so much for all your amazing support with our Walk and Fun Run last week. The sponsorship  is coming in nicely with children receiving a small prize as they return their forms and money. It would be great to have everything in by this Thursday as it is  the last day of the term. We will be awarding some larger prizes on Thursday for a child in each class.

Last week we also had the amazing El Gregoe perform a fantastic magic show for us. His show uses 'illusions' to entertain us while teaching us all about the values that make us good people. It is an excellent way to support out school Values Pogramme which is based on our '4 R's'...





Just a reminder that the term does finish with a short week this week. Friday is 'Easter Friday' which then flows in to the 2 week term holiday.

Have a great week.

Waltham Walk-a-thon Wednesday

A reminder to everyone that it is our 'Waltham Walk and Fun Run' tomorrow (Wednesday). This is an annual fundraiser where all our students complete as many laps of the Waltham Park course as they can in the 30-45 minute time frame.

The students have been collecting sponsors this week (either per lap or for an overall donation) on their cards and these cards should be returned to school for tomorrows event. During the event the cards will be marked and the laps recorded so that the children can take the cards home again and collect in their money.

All students who return their money by the end of the term (next Thursday) will receive an instant prize from my prize-box and go in to the draw for some sports equipment for themselves. Students from each class that raise the most money will also win a special prize.

Parents and friends are very welcome to come down to Waltham Park to support us and watch this fun event. We should be arriving at the park about 1:15pm and the run/walk is timed to start at 1:30pm.
