Non Uniform Day – Friday 11th April

Mrs Shaw would like to thank everyone who has kindly donated their old shoes for her Kenya Project; lots of children will have happy faces when they are given a pair to wear.  Also, to help raise funds for this project we will be holding a non uniform day next Friday when children can come to school dressed in clothing of their choice. There will be a donation box available in each classroom for your kind contributions. We wish Mrs Shaw all the best as she travels out to Kenya during the Easter Holidays. Details & information about the project can be found at
