Olympic Week, 9-13 July

  • Children should come to school in PE kit every day next week.
  • On Tuesday Gemma from the Sports Partnership is coming in with some of the young sports leaders from County School and they will be working with each year group on a variety of sporty Olympic activities.
  • Wednesday (11th) is Sports Day and parents are invited to come and watch up on the field from 9.15am. Children will be working in their house groups for the Pewley Pentathlon. There will also be races for mums, dads and toddlers if you would like to take part as well.
  • We have had some lovely entries already for the ‘dress your toy as an Olympic sport’ competition and all entries need to be in by Friday 13th. Please make sure they are named.

Dads’ Day
Thank you to all the dads who came in to help during Dads’ Day this week. Please drop any sponsorship money off at the office.

Olympic Torch Event Tickets in Stoke Park
Please can anybody help? I was not able to get any tickets for the event on 20th July (despite applying from 9.30am). I am desperately trying to get hold of 4 tickets so that we can see Polly representing the school, holding the HTPD flag along the torch bearer’s route. I have asked lots and lots of people, and am now getting a bit worried that she will have to go alone. If you have a ticket that you will not be using please could you let me know? Many thanks. Amanda (Polly 5M). Guildford 503835.

Dinosaur Quiz
Congratulations to Flora in Walnut Class for winning the Dinosaur Quiz. You certainly know your dinosaurs! Please see Ritvik or Marius for your prize.

Strong volunteers needed to dig the steep bank at the side of the playground so that we can plant some big new shrubs. Please contact Sarah McKenzie or the school office.

Building work at Mount Alvernia
Mount Alvernia has had planning approval for an integrated cancer centre with work starting over the summer. Although this will be created largely by refurbishing existing space there will be some building work which may have an impact on traffic in Harvey Road.

PUPS Parents
Sarah has decided to leave pups at the end of this term due to family commitments. She has worked at PUPs for the past 15 months and enjoyed her time at the after-school club. She will be missed by all the children who attend PUPs as well as the PUPs team. We wish to thank her for all her hard work at pups.

Spanish Club
Learn Spanish while having fun! Small groups after school on Tuesdays from 3.00 to 4.00 pm. We do have a couple of places for next term starting in September. If you would like more information please e-mail: soiamaskell19@hotmail.com . Otherwise there will be Enrolment Forms at the School Reception if your son/daughter is interested. I will be away all school holidays and back on the 7th September. Gracias.
