Jerseys for Ethiopia

The school will hold a Jersey Day for Ethiopia on Thursday 28th June, the day of the summer holidays. Pupils may wear a jersey to school on that day, with their uniform trousers/ skirt/ tracksuit. Pupils are asked to bring in an old Jersey on the day to donate to a boy/ girl in a school in Ethiopia.

A family in the school will go on a trip to Ethiopia later this year and will bring all the donated jerseys with them as a gift to a boy or girl in a school in Ethiopia, from a boy or girl in this school.

Pupils do not bring in money on Thursday 28th June, instead they wear a jersey and bring in a jersey to donate. Your support with this special Jersey Day for Ethiopia is much appreciated in advance.

Head Lice

Please check your child’s hair for head lice and treat if you find live lice. Keep treating, as directed and wash coats, hats and bed clothes. If one child in the family had head lice please check everyone! Thank you for your continued support dealing with this matter.
