Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter 3.10.13

Harvest Festival – A big thank you to all the parents who supported our Harvest festival this year, for providing a tremendous amount of produce and attending our Festival at the school.  I would like to thank Mrs Bodeker for organising everything and also thank those who boxed up the produce and delivered it to elderly residents in Woodcote. They were Sarah Murrin, Gemma Hoare, Sue Palmer, Michelle Cox, Carla Van Heerden and Annie Temple.  Also a very special thank you to Sandra Farmer for the time she spent decorating the boxes for us to make them look really special for the recipients.


School Photographs – A reminder that if you would like to order photographs, the orders must be brought into the school office first thing on Monday morning next week so that they can be sent to the photographer and hopefully we will receive the photos back before half term.


After School Club – The Annual General Meeting will be held next Monday 7th October in the school hall starting at 7.30pm.  Please come along and if you are interested in joining the committee please let any of the ASC staff know.  It would be great to have more committee members.


Parents Interviews – These will be held during the week beginning 21st October.  More details will be on next week’s newsletter.


Operation Christmas Child – With this newsletter you should receive a leaflet about this year’s Christmas shoebox appeal.  All details are on the leaflet but please note that a donation of £3 per box is also requested.  The boxes will need to be brought into school after half term (not before please as we have nowhere to store them) so that they can be collected from here.


Cross Country Events – There are a series of primary school cross country events taking place at Chiltern Edge on Saturday 12th October, Saturday 16th November and Saturday 7th December starting from 10am (depending on year group).
