New Value - Responsibility
This week we started to learn about our new value, Responsibility. We talked about taking responsibility for what you say, especially making an effort to say kind and positive things to each other. If you notice your child taking responsibility of what they say at home, please let us know.
Book Donations and Wish List
We are currently updating our library books and to help with this we would be grateful for donations of any good quality picture books or chapter books suitable for children aged 3 to 7. Please bring any pre-loved books to the office.
Watch this space… as we are also going to be creating a wish list of new books for anyone who would like to buy a book for the library or reading corners in the classrooms.
