Thank you to everybody that carved pumpkins for our competition. There were lots of entries and the judging was incredibly hard.

Congratulations to the winners and to everybody else, as always it wouldn’t be such a great competition if so many of you didn’t enter. You may still be lucky in the costume competition tomorrow, taking part is always fun.

You will be able to see all of the pumpkins on Saturday as they are on display on the ground floor. Please remember that you can take your pumpkin home at the end of the party or after school on Monday. After that unfortunately they will all disappear!

If you have any time between now and tomorrow evening, please bake some spooky cookies or cup cakes for the cake stall. We still need more contributions to meet the target set. Thank you.

Please remember that for your safety you will only be able to enter school from Avenue Franklin Roosevelt tomorrow evening, as the fireworks will be set up in the playground. The playground will be out of bounds all evening. Thank you for your support in this area.

And finally, as I am typing this there are still many parents, teachers and children working across the school helping to prepare for tomorrow. Thank you to all of these people and to everybody that has been here during the day. All of your hard work will ensure that tomorrow night will be a huge success. Thank you in advance, to all of those people that have volunteered to help during the party itself and to tidy up on Sunday.

I look forward to seeing you all, even though I might not recognise you!
Don’t be too late or you will miss the fun.

Don’t have nightmares!

Mandy Porrett.
