Dear Parents,

We want to say thank you to parents for the generous donations last term which help to fund our swimming pool.  The warm weather so far this term has meant that we have been able to continue to use this wonderful resource which has been a great way to start the new academic year. 

Best wishes for a lovely weekend,

Valerie Elliott
