The PTA did a fantastic job raising over £400 at The Macmillan Coffee Morning last Friday.
The sun shone for the junior cross country on Wednesday and the pupils all enjoyed taking part.
Reception children smiled nicely for the photographer from the Lancaster Guardian, look out for the picture after half term.
The sun certainly didn’t shine for the juniors to explore the River Wenning, but they have gone and we are sure they will see plenty of water!
Individual and Family Photos. Hopefully everyone has had chance to view the photos taken by Tiny Pixels last week. We have been informed that the last day to order photos is Sunday 13th October.
Walk to School. The first Walk to School this year is planned for Friday 11th October. Staff will meet children in the car park opposite the Institute at 8:20am and then everyone will walk up to school together. Please take care when driving into the car park and dropping the children off. We will need a couple of parents to walk with us as well.
