On Thursday 20th December we will be hosting a ‘Panto in a Day’ production of Cinderella for the children. The pantomime will be at Church Hill School. EYFS and KS1 children will watch it in the morning and KS2 children will watch it in the afternoon. All children should come into Brunswick Park in the morning as normal and then they will be taken up by staff for the show. KS2 children should be collected from school at 3.30pm that day in order to allow enough time for them to watch the show and walk back from Church Hill School. KS1 and EYFS children should be collected at the normal time. We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £2 per child for the show. This will show on your child’s school money page. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash payment.
Children in Need
The school council have decided that they would like to raise money for BBC Children In Need so on Friday 16th November children can bring in 50p and come in in ‘clashtastic’ wacky clothes such as glittery shoes with stripy socks and a camouflage T-shirt. The more mismatched and wacky, the better! There will be a prize for the best dressed child in each key stage. We would also welcome donations of cakes or snacks to sell after school on the day. Please give any donations to your child’s class teacher on Friday morning.
Get your LEGO minifigures ready!
14th November is World Diabetes Day and James Harris in Year 6 is holding a fundraising event for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) a charity devoted to curing Type 1 diabetes.
James will be holding a LEGO minifigure sale on that day, open to all children, including Nursery.
You can do two things to help with this event.
- Bring in and donate complete LEGO minifigures, at any time before the sale, and give them to James in 6E or hand them into the front office. Make sure they are the sort of minifigures you would want to buy and that they have all their limbs and hats etc.
- Bring in money on the day- pre-loved minifigures will cost between 50p and £1 and there will also be a £1 raffle for new minifigures (including Harry Potter figures) As minifigures cost about £3 each this is a real bargain.
James is already collecting some brilliant minifigures, some kindly donated by ‘Merlin Entertainment’ the people who run Legoland.
The event will take place after school in the 6E classroom and everyone is welcome. This is the first classroom that you walk past when you come through the side gate by the main entrance to the school. Morning Nursery will be able to purchase minifigures as well- James will make a special visit to make sure they don’t miss out.
Disability-Smart Awards 2018
Following nomination by the Harris family, we are delighted that Brunswick Park Primary School has been selected as a finalist for the Disabled People’s Choice award at the Business Disability Forum Disability Smart Awards 2018. Up against big boys such as Liverpool FC and the London Borough of Hounslow, the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 29th November.
Parking at the roundabout has improved, but I have had recent communication from residents of Dowd Close regarding further inappropriate parking in the local area. Please respect the local residents when parking your vehicle.
