Important Information:

  • You will have noticed that one of the gates at the front of school is not working properly. This is because some of the fragile detectors on it have been broken. We have seen that sometimes children that reach the gate before their parents arrive climb on it, whilst waiting for it to be opened with the tag. Please remind your child(ren) that they must not climb on the gate, both for their safety and to avoid damaging it. Thank you for your support.
  • Please remember that Parent/Teacher Consultations will take place next Tuesday (2ndApril). If for any reason you are unable to keep your appointment time, please inform the class teacher.
  • On the day we return to school after the Easter holiday (Tuesday 23rdApril), we will be celebrating World Book Day. On that day we would like the children to come to school dressed as one of their favourite book characters. They will spend the day exploring rhyme, poems and poetry and reading and writing some of their own. There is bound to be plenty of reading happening too. Your child’s teacher will tell you more about what to expect in their Newsletter next week.

School Events:

  • Today a few of our Secondary and Year 5 and 6 children took part in an International School Quiz. We are very proud to tell you that the Primary children came 3rdin their age group, and that the Secondary students secured first place in theirs. Well done to them all. Most importantly though, they had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
  • This afternoon, 3A led Upper School assembly and shared their learning about the body. The highlight of this was their demonstration of the digestive system. If you have a child in Upper School we are sure they will be happy to tell you about it. Thank you and well done 3A.
  • Our Pre-School Artists held an exhibition for their parents as the Exit Point for their Unit of Work "Inspired By”. Everybody is very proud of the collaborative achievements of the event. Your generous donations raised 537 Euros for The Relay for Life which supports the Foundation Against Cancer. Thank you to everybody that attended and donated too. When these children grow into famous artists, remember you saw their talent here at BEPS first!
  • The Reception children went to Technopolis on Monday. This is a hands on Science venue where they enjoyed  pretending to be a construction worker - building a house or fixing the roof; the driver of an ambulance or a doctor; a train conductor; a shop keeper and so many more exciting jobs. They also had the opportunity to experiment with water: making waves, creating a vortex, standing inside a soap bubble and lots more. We would like to say thank you to the parents that joined them on their trip, without you trips like this would not be possible.
  • As always, the Book Fair was a huge success. The children bought lots of books and we are already hearing how much they are enjoying them. We also benefitted and have many new books to add to our library. There will be one more Book Fair before the end of the year. This will be just before the summer holidays so the children will be able to books to enjoy whilst they are not at school.
  • On Thursday, the PTA Easter Bunnies are organising their annual Egg Hunt for the children. The children always love this event and will look for eggs in the tiniest of cracks and places that you would never imagine! It’s sure to be a fun day.
