Mini Red Tennis – Years 3 and 4

On Thursday this week Mrs Bodeker took Vaughan, Toby, Fin, Samuel, Kiera, Elsie and Amelie from Year 4 and Kirsten from Year 3 to Langtree School for a mini Red Tennis tournament. They put up a tremendous fight and entertained the officials with some fantastic rallies.

Aspens – Change of Menu Thursday 18th May

The menu for hot dinners has changed on Thursday 18th May. If you have ordered chicken curry your child will have chicken nuggets with curly fries and the vegetarian option will change from a pinwheel to cheese and tomato pizza. If you are happy for your child to have these alternatives you don’t need to change your order, but if you aren’t you will need to re-order a baked potato or an Aspens packed lunch.
