This will be my last Newsletter before half-term and our return on Monday 30th October is the start of a very busy time ahead; which is not to say that this half of term has also been very busy with our various workshops and events!
It was lovely to see so many of you with us on Friday morning and I am sure you were as entertained as I was with all the wonderful recitations from the children. I am always amazed at what they are able to do and remember when inspired and motivated.
Thank you for your support of the Harvest Service. Well done to all of Form VI and thank you for your generous donations for The Vine Centre and for your Rotary Shoeboxes.
Hartley Wintney Fun Run – Sunday 8th October
It was good to see a number of our children taking part and an enjoyable morning was had by all.
A reminder that all children should return in winter uniform and therefore boys should be wearing ties at all times. Boys who choose to wear shorts must wear knee length grey socks. Please also ensure your child always has a coat in school. Unnamed clothing continues to be an issue particularly in the Upper School and I hope that our return in winter uniform will see all items of clothing named.
Nearly New Uniform Shop
The Nearly New Uniform Shop will be open from 8.30-9.00 am and 3-3.30 pm on Wednesday 18th October for any winter uniform requirements you may have. Please note that purchases will now be added to your next outstanding account.
Mrs Mills has asked me to remind you of the following: please could we ask that when items are brought in to be sold they are washed, preferably ironed and if you would like a portion of the purchase price to be credited to your account, please ensure each item is labelled. If not we will assume it is a donation to the School. Thank you.
Driving and Parking on School site
I would politely remind parents that only those with permission may park on the school grounds at school drop off and pick up time. Parents should also be aware that staff may be leaving the site at this time, along with other vehicle movement, and should therefore please keep control of younger children.
I know that parking is an issue in Mount Pleasant but we will always hold on to children if you are running late.
Conker Competition – Upper School in aid of Children in Need.
The cost to enter is 50p and conkers will be provided – children can choose their conker on the day of the event. Form VI will sell any remaining strung conkers for 20p each at the end of the day. Upper School children who would like to take part should bring their money in on Tuesday.
Wednesday 18th October – Mufti Day ‘Jeans for Genes’
Children should bring £1 for the privilege of wearing home clothes for the day; we would like to see something denim. PE uniform should be brought in if the class usually has a PE lesson except for Form K who do not need to bring PE clothes but should have outdoor trainers in school.
Lower School Trip to see Peter Pan at Camberley Theatre – Tuesday 12th December
This year the Lower School will be going to the Camberley Theatre to see Peter Pan instead of a production in school. Ice creams will be available at £2.70 each and we need to place an order very soon and your child’s Form Teacher will be asking the children what they would like after half term. Please let the School Office know if you do not want your child to have an ice-cream. Thank you.
Upper School Trip to see The Borrowers at The Watermill – Tuesday 12th December
We will also be placing orders after half term for ice-cream for the Upper School trip to see ‘The Borrowers’. The cost is £1 and this will be added to your bill; your child’s Form Teacher will be asking the children what they would like. Please let the School Office know if you do not want your child to have an ice-cream. Thank you.
With all good wishes for the half term break.
