This week has gone by quickly and now we only have one more week before the half term break.
Class 1 enjoyed their visit to the Aquarium yesterday. They spotted many types of fish they haven't seen before but were most excited to spot Nemo and Dory amongst the corals and anemones!
We are happy to inform you that the installation of the new gate at the front of school is now complete, and that you can collect your new entry tags from Dominique from Monday onwards. Further information giving you all the information you should need regarding the new system will also be sent to you on Monday.
As you already know on Tuesday (21st February) we will be celebrating International/Mother Tongue Day at BEPS. Your child’s teacher will have already asked your help and we would like to thank those of you that have replied and volunteered to come into your child’s class to share a story from your culture with them.
On that day, we also ask the children to come to school dressed in something which represents their home country to enable us to see the rich diversity of our school’s population at a glance. We also share an international lunch together. There will not be hot lunches or usual packed lunches on that day. Instead we ask you to send in a plate of food from your home country for the children in your child’s class to share. They will have an international lunch in their classroom to which you are also invited. The times for these lunches to start are: Early Years (Pre-school and Class 1) 12:00, Lower School (Classes 2 & 3) 12:30 & Upper School (Classes 4-8) 13.00.
This is always a very special day and one which the children look forward to each year.
Kurt Goossens would like to inform you that there are still places available for the Holiday Club that will take place during half term. If you have not yet enrolled your child(ren) but are interested in doing so, please contact him or Dominique on Monday.
