Please remember that you also need to complete a Community Hours proforma. This is available from Mrs Edmonds in central admin.

*NEW* WATER BOTTLES FOR SALE

Water BottlesOver the Easter break, we have had 5 new water fountains installed around the school site.

We are aware of the research that promotes being well hydrated when learning.

“By the time thirst is felt, there may be a loss of up to 10% in cognitive functions and a reduction in the ability to learn.”
Dr Philippa Norman MD, MPH

We are therefore making water bottles available to all students in your house colours.

The water bottles cost £1 each and will be available from Student Reception from Monday 13th April onwards.

All the proceeds will go to the Student Council so they can re-invest the money to improve the school.

Thank you for your support

WATER AID

For the past week, we have had a toilet in Main Reception raising the awareness of the importance of clean, safe water in our lives.

The students and staff have been ‘spending-a-penny’ all week and collecting and donating money towards Water Aid.  Our final total today is £162.

This is an amazing effort by all and we thank Miss Lennon for co-ordinating the fundraising.

HEADTEACHER’S LETTER

HT Letter March '15Dear Parent/Carer,

As we move towards the end of the Spring Term I wanted to write to update you with the news of school events.  Although short in length, as a school it certainly has been an extremely busy term.

Our official inspection report was published on 6th February – many thanks to all the parents that attended the meeting in school to discuss this and the recommendations provided by Estyn.  Our response in terms of the Post Inspection Action Plan was submitted on 13th March.  Once again I will publish details of this on our school website.  We look forward to working with you in collaboration over the coming months to successfully meet the recommendations and secure success for St Julian’s School…..
