  • A plea for spare clothes:  Our stock of spare clothes is running very low indeed. In fact our underwear and trousers boxes are now completely empty!  Please could parents check  in case your child has borrowed some spare clothes and they are still at home. Thank you. Do you have any  underwear, trousers or shoes that your child has out grown and would be suitable to help replenish our supplies of spare clothes?  We would be very grateful for any donations.
  • Nursery Christmas Show : It will take place on Wednesday 9th December in Stage One. All parents are welcome! Please let your child’s class teacher know if your child will not be here to take part in the Christmas Show. The children will need to bring in some special costumes for the show.  Please ask your room parents for details.The  Panthers should wear pajamas, Meerkats to wear brown or black (tights or legings & t-shirt), Foxes to wear white and Wolves to wear Red.

Jules is opgetogen.  De Sint komt bijna op bezoek!  Jules zet zijn schoen klaar en maakt samen met papa een nieuwe mijter voor de Sint.  Ook in de Nederlandse klas bereiden we ons voor op het bezoek van de Sint en zetten we een schoentje klaar in de  Sinthoek`.   Indien u een oud kinderschoentje heeft mag u dit zeker meegeven! 

Door een wisseling in het lessenrooster gaan we vanaf deze week op dinsdag  naar bibliotheek. Onze excuses voor het ongemak.  Dank  voor uw medewerking hierbij.
