SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

22nd November 2019


From the Principal’s desk:

Thank you to everyone for making such a great effort to attend Parent/Teacher meetings.  Meetings will conclude tomorrow with the remainder of Rang 5.  We hope that you have found them useful. Please send any comments/ suggestions/ feedback that you might have for next year by return email. We really do value this opportunity to sit down with you and talk about your child’s experience here in RMDS, so your responses will be considered in making arrangements for future meetings.


Please remember to lock all bikes properly! It is important that the bike lock is put through the wheel and also through the bars of the bike rack to be effective!!!


Don’t forget to return your ballot paper for the Parent Representative for the BOM by Tuesday, 26th November at the latest!


An email has gone to all families today with details of our Festive Charity this year. Please note children can bring in goods any day from this Monday, 25th November and the final date for receipt of goods in your child’s class is Monday, December 2nd. It is important that children are fully involved in the process of selecting an item for the collection.


Please check for lost property at the gate in the morning. There is a good collection at the moment! All items left at the weekend will be donated to charity.
