Lunch Shop

Thank you to all those parents who attended the demonstration of the online Lunch Shop website.  I have been using the system as a parent myself for many months so can say from experience how simple it is to use.  If you do have any problems with using it either on your smartphone, tablet or computer, then do not hesitate to ask for help.  

 

Friends of LAMPS

The Plant and Bake Sale held at Buccleugh Hall on Saturday last week was a huge success.  We raised a total of £609.76 which is an amazing amount.  It was wonderful for me to be able to watch the pupils on their stalls and see how confidently they interacted with their ‘customers’.  They thoroughly enjoyed planning their fundraising ideas and loved being able to count the profits and take pride in the fact that they too have helped raise money for school.  Thank you to all those who donated cakes and raffle prizes and also those who came and supported on the day.

 

Money raised recently by the Friends of LAMPS has made a significant contribution to our outdoor work which is now almost complete.  I would just like to express my appreciation for your continued efforts and say how much I value being part of a school and community where parents are so committed to working in partnership and are so supportive of everything we do.

 

Collection of pupils at the end of the school day

Now the outdoor work is complete, children from the Pixies will be leaving school from their classrooms so, from Monday, parents are free to wait in the new outdoor area.  The Unicorn class will also now be taken out of the hall door and handed over to parents in that area.

 

There is an increasing number of children who are not being collected on time at the end of the school day.  Whilst our teachers do remain in school for much longer, this is because they are either planning, marking, delivering an extra-curricular club or having meetings.  If you do not collect your child on time they may well be taken to After-School Club which will result in a bill being issued.  We completely understand occasional delays caused by traffic or unplanned events and will always support you where this is the case but please contact us as soon as possible so we can ensure your child is where they need to be at 3:15pm.

 

Photographs

Anthony Wright will be collecting orders for photographs next Monday.  He has told us that he will happily take orders after this day although you will need to contact him at his studio directly.
