Thank you to everybody that attended the Welcome Picnic last Saturday. It was great to see so many new faces, and of course the not so new faces too. The lovely weather added to the conviviality and the fantastic food rounded things off. We look forward to seeing you at our next BEPS event for more fun.
Yesterday, the PTA held their General Assembly. They reflected on their achievements from last year and plans were made for the year ahead. They will be grateful for your support and will welcome new members or volunteers.
On Monday your eldest child will bring home an important letter in their Blue Bag. This will be about BEPS’ involvement in the Relay for Life (Relais pour la Vie) in memory of our colleague Susan Heron. This is an event to raise money for the Foundation against Cancer campaign (Fondation contre le Cancer). Our BEPS team will run or walk around a track for 24 hours in a relay. The 24 hours are a symbol of the constant battle patients and their families must endure in the fight against the disease. Relay For Life is not a competition, but a gathering of communities united in the fight against cancer. Therefore, we would like to invite parents and children to join us.
This will take place from 15.00 on Saturday 21stOctober until 15.00 on Sunday 22ndOctober at the ULB Campus (just opposite BEPS). You can find out more about the event at https://www.relayforlife.be/
Please read the letter you receive carefully to see how you and the children can support us. It is an exciting opportunity to raise awareness and to show how united the BEPS community is. Any support you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The photographer will be in school on Thursday (27th). Each child will have an individual photograph taken and for families, there will be photographs taken with siblings.
