The PTA and many volunteers have been working hard to prepare for tomorrow’s Halloween Party, and it looks like it’s going to be fantastic. Thank you to all of them.

Sadly we have to tell you that unless you have already bought tickets for the party you will be unable to join us. As always, there has been a huge demand for tickets and so for safety reasons no more can be sold.

Please remember that when you arrive tomorrow you will only be able to enter through the front of the school on Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, the back entrance will be closed.

Despite all the exciting party preparations lots has been happening this week. Ms. Hertay helped the Pre-School children who were planting bulbs this morning and they will all be eagerly awaiting the first signs of growth. Earlier in the week she spent time in Class 5 sharing her first hand experiences of volcanoes around the world. The children were all fascinated by her presentation as they were by Finn and his father’s (who is a geologist) volcanic rock collection. It is great when parents come into school and share their knowledge or interests with the children, thank you.

Class 4 were lucky enough to have an author in their classroom yesterday. She came in to tell them a story and to have their input on a story that she has just started to write. She is keen to come and spend more time in school telling stories and to learn from the children too.

This afternoon it was Buddy Time for Classes 1 – 8. As usual the children were looking forward to spending time with their buddies and there was plenty of fun taking place. Some classes were listening to stories and others were involved in Halloween activities.

Next Friday Classes 6, 7 & 8 are taking part in Je Cous pour ma forme 2015. This is a 1500m run organised by the Federation Sportive de l’Enseignement Officiel Subventionne. They have been preparing for it in their P.E lessons with Simon Deglain. It will take place in the Stade des Trois Tilleuls in Watermael-Boitsfort.

As you are aware after the half term holiday we have a day off school for Armistice Day (11th November). As usual you will be able to donate to the Royal British Legion and collect a poppy to wear from Dominique’s office.

Don’t forget that the clocks go back an hour this weekend. This means that we will be able to have an extra hour in bed after the fun of the Halloween party.

We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow – make sure that you are feeling brave before you arrive!

Best Wishes (or should it be Beastly Wishes?!)
