Many of the childrenâ€™s wishes are already in place. Here you can see our fantastic new playground equipment and the children are loving it. Thanks to everyone for working so hard to provide it. We have at least one member of staff supervising each of the climbing frames at break. Before and after school, parents and carers are responsible for making sure their children are safe on the equipment. Please keep a close eye on them all. Thank you.
Can you believe that just by clearing out your old clothes and putting them in our Ragbag, you have contributed ÂŁ187.50 to the Playground Fund. Wow! Our fabulous field was great fun to play in during January and some of the children are missing playing on the field and in the woods. So for the rest of this term, the children will play on the field at break and lunch EVERY WEDNESDAY. Please make sure they have their wellies or strong shoes on WEDNESDAYS. We will be discussing this at Parent Council on Wednesday night (22nd Feb).
On Mondays and Fridays this fortnight, we are selling fairtrade items at our snack trolley. Fairtrade cookies from Prestonpans Small World shop are the favourites!
Thanks to Mrs Harris’ great idea and hard work, we raised £273.50 for Prestonpans Children’s Gala at our recent Bingo night. Thank you to all who donated prizes, came and played and came and worked. Great fun.
Come to our Race Night at Prestonpans Labour Club on Saturday night, 3 March 2012, at 7pm. It only costs £5 to get in and there’s a chance to win great prizes and take part in a tremendous Fundraising Auction. This is a big attempt to raise a lot of money for the Playground so spread the word and invite your neighbours along.
We are celebrating World Book Day on Friday 24 February. So this is a great opportunity to dress up IF YOUR CHILD WANTS TO. The idea is to dress up as a character from a book. It’s free and fun so please don’t get stressed by it but if your child wants to join some of the staff dressed up, then that will be grand. (BUT REMEMBER .... THEY DON’T HAVE TO!)
