Please make sure that you order your tickets for the Halloween/Fireworks party as soon as possible. We need to know how many people will be attending for safety reasons and also so that we order enough food and drink.

Thank you to those of you that have already volunteered to help with the event, if you have not yet offered your support we will be happy to hear from you. Class teachers will also be approaching you to ask for your help, every little helps!

We have one problem at the moment, and that is that we have not yet found anybody that is willing to come and light the barbecue an hour before the party is due to start. If you are able to do this important job, please let us know, as it would be a great pity if we couldn’t have the barbecue at the party.

Oscar sent you an e-mail at the weekend explaining about Team BEPS running in the Acerta-Brussels Ekiden race, a relay marathon which is being held on Saturday (13th October). If you would be interested in supporting us, and more importantly the charity SOS Villages D’Enfants, please send your contributions into Jenny-Ruth. It will certainly help to spur us on if we know that children will be benefiting from our efforts. Thank you.

At the end of the children’s 40th Anniversary celebration, each child released a balloon into the air. Although a few of them only managed to make it as far as the trees many others floated off into the distance. We are very happy because some postcards have now been sent back to us. If you come and look in the entrance hall you will see those that have been returned on display. At present the distance they have travelled varies between 3km and 757km! We will be sending out a full list of the distances travelled and the owner of the balloons very soon.

If you have not yet booked a place for your child(ren) in the additional Garderie for during your Parent/Teacher Consultation next Tuesday please do so as soon as possible. Places must be pre booked and paid for in advance so that we can ensure that enough staff are present to run the Garderie. Thank you for your support.

Enjoy the sunshine this afternoon.

Best Wishes
