How bad was the snow on Saturday!  Please can it end right now – we’ve had enough!

Today, we wish to say a special thank you to Mr Down and his family who all came out on Sunday and cleared the carpark and pathways.  And (not for the first time) they were joined by Paul Smith – Brendan’s dad.  How community spirited is that?  So, thank you everyone for your great kindness.


Reminder!  Today Monday!  ‘Online Safety’ meeting in school 2pm to 3pm – please do try to attend

Vacancy for School Caretaker.

Due to the imminent retirement of Mr Down, our Caretaker, we have a vacancy for a school Caretaker, commencing mid July.  No, we can’t believe it either!  Over the years, Brian has shovelled away snow, blown up flat tyres and looked after us all so well!  We are going to miss him so much.  Please see the advert pinned in the school porch or call at the office for further details.
