Unfortunately, there has recently been a few children in school who have caught head lice. It would be greatly appreciated if all parents/carers would read the suggested advice issued by the Welsh Government.
Please note: Head lice is not a reason for absence from school for a full day. Once children have been treated, they are allowed to return to school for the remainder of the school day.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
If any parent/carer has a folding table and chair set similar to that detailed and would be happy to loan it to the school/PTA for The Machen Show on Saturday 1st July, please contact Mrs Luff in the school office. Thank you.
Class photographs were taken two weeks ago, unfortunately on receiving the proofs the quality is not as expected. Therefore, the photographer will be back in school tomorrow morning to re-take all class photographs.
A reminder that the community book swap will take place on Thursday 22nd June. Children’s books will be swapped during school time and children will be given the opportunity to take home books which have been donated. Parent/carer and teacher’s books can be swapped between 3.30pm and 4.00pm. Any children’s books which are not taken home will be used to replenish the school and class libraries and any adult’s books which are not taken home will be donated to a local charity shop.
Please send any books for the community book swap into school by the 21st June. Please ensure books are in a good condition for others and it would be appreciated if children’s and adult’s books are clearly labelled or separated.
Mrs Gettings and Mrs Hayhoe would like to invite parents/carers into school on Friday 7th July between 9:15am – 10:30am to view the fabulous artwork completed by the children over the past couple of weeks. The children have been studying Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and we would love to celebrate their amazing work with you. The children will sing a Sunflower song and there will also be an opportunity to purchase some of your child’s work.
