A warm welcome back to new school routines from the Association of Friends.  Remember that the Friends is your PTA and we are all volunteering our time to run social events for both adults and children,  with the objective of creating a cohesive school community.  At the start of this term we have a number of opportunities for you to come and find out a little more about we are planning for the year ahead –
– Tues 17th September 8:30am (Pavilion). Coffee Morning for Buttons and Pre-Prep Parents
– Thu 19th September 8:30am (Pavilion).   Coffee Morning for Prep Parents
– Mon 30th September 4:15pm  (School Hall)  Friends Annual Review and Social Event – parents in Pre-Prep & Buttons are welcome to bring their children to this event.

These events will also be attended by members of Mr Neeson’s School Leadership Team, so they are an ideal opportunity for current parents, new parents and staff to meet together informally.

I would also like to bring to your attention some other important dates for your diary.  Our annual Fireworks Extravaganza will be held on Friday 8th November from 6pm, online tickets will be available from mid-October.    Carols and Fizz is on Thursday 5th December from 7:30pm and last but not least The Friends Christmas Fayre is on Saturday 7th December during the afternoon.

We look forward to welcoming to our events this term. If you would like to help out with any of these events or require and further information then please drop us a line via thefriends@thebluecoatschool.com.
