Dear Parents, Carers and Governors

Next week your child will bring home art work for a Christmas card design that the PTA will organise as a Christmas fund raiser. There are lots of options to choose from in addition to cards. Please complete the application form and return the form and the art work to school no later than Wednesday 18th October if you wish to purchase anything. Please note applications returned after this date cannot be processed by the school.

Harvest Donations
I am delighted to say that the grand total raised for Fusi School in Lesotho is £500. We are not far off our aim of raising £550 and hope to achieve this before the end of the year. The foundation that works with Fusi School is thrilled and grateful for the support given by our two schools.

School Lunches
School lunches are £2.20 a day for children in Years 3 to 6. You may pay a lump sum in advance if you prefer and the admin team will let you know when you are getting close to the end. If paying by cheque please make cheques out to Madley Brook School.

And finally…
It is with great sadness that Mrs Clare Collins has tendered her resignation to finish at Christmas. Mrs Collins has been at the school for 7 years working firstly as a teaching assistant and then a teacher in both Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. It has been lovely to have Mrs Collins back in our school following her year of illness but now is the time for her to try pastures new. We wish her all the very best and as a staff we will miss her enthusiasm, her talent and her great sense of humour.

Yours sincerely
Katherine Spencer
