Book Week

The Middle Street book week events were very successful. The highlights of the week were the Book Fair and the Book Swap day. I think just about every child in the school ended up with at least one book to take home either from the book fair or from the book swap. Thank you to everyone who donated books to the book swap.

School Council News

The School Council met this week with a professional graffiti artist to discuss plans for a piece of artwork on a wall in the playground. They also discussed the school’s guidelines on ‘Toys in School’. If you are interested in reading through the guidelines and which toys from home are allowed in school, please look on the school website ( next week. Please feel free to send in written constructive and respectful comments regarding the guidelines.

The school council members will be meeting the Mayor in the Mayor’s chambers on Thursday 23rd October.

On-Time Teds

The winners this week are Year 2 and Year 3 . Well done to both classes. Well done to everyone who gets into school and class before the 9 O clock bell. Sadly though we have an exceptional number of children coming in late this week. Parents/Carers must ensure that children are in school and in class before the 9. O clock bell rings. Please do not keep your child with you if you are lining up at the office. Lateness is something the Educational Welfare Officer from the Local Authority takes very seriously.
