Boxes of Hope

Just a reminder that Boxes of Hope will be collected on November 15th.  We have only had only 10 donated up until now so we’re desperately hoping for a few more. 


Outdoor PE

I am sure you have all noticed the drop in temperature over the last week or so.  There was even snow in Marton on Wednesday!  Most of our PE lessons and extra-curricular clubs are moving indoors but when the weather is dry and mild we will always try to get the children outside.  Children are able to wear jogging bottoms for outdoor PE (navy preferably) and either a fleece or hoody.  Please be assured though, we would never have them outdoors if it is too cold and when they do go out, they will always be active and keeping their bodies moving.




Our Year 3/4 hockey team went to Ulverston yesterday to compete in a tournament against other schools.  They won all 3 of their matches coming first overall.  Well done to all involved and thank you to Mrs Marshall who supported and helped with transport. 




We have been contacted by one of our neighbours on School Terrace who is not very happy with the parking situation.  This week his car has been damaged whilst parked on Pit Lane.  He also struggles to squeeze the car out of the parking space (due to cars parking so closely) and, when he returns home from work around 3ish, he is unable to park at all.  We were very sympathetic to his frustrations, especially as his car has been damaged, but we did explain that our building is situated on a public road so all we as a school could do was to ask staff and parents to be mindful of other users especially residents.



Keswick to Barrow

I was very pleased to attend the presentation evening last night for the Keswick to Barrow walk.  As you may remember, our staff have supported the Coniston walk for two years now by marshalling the start at Coniston Leisure Centre.  The school was one of many charities and groups chosen to benefit from the money raised in sponsorships and we were presented with a donation of £1200 which we are thrilled about.  It is a very generous amount which we will be using to improve our garden.  We would like to thank the K2B committee, the walkers and all who sponsored a walker.  It is an honour for us to be involved and even more so to be awarded such a generous donation.
