Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 10th January 2020

10 January 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to school after what I hope was a lovely Christmas break.

2020 promises to be an exciting year at Kells Lane Primary School. Our new nursery has now opened and the children have settled in remarkably quickly. I would like to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to our new families.

We are hoping to begin our window replacement programme during the Easter holidays or shortly before. I will of course update you with more details as soon as I can. Please be assured any disruption will be kept to a minimum. This year will also see us continue with our Playground Project and Opal Outdoor Learning. If you have any unwanted resources, including any unwanted toys, I’m sure they would be gratefully received by the children.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
