This summer holiday, children are invited to enter our reading competition. Get caught reading in an unusual place! Submit a photo of your child reading a book somewhere a bit different. Perhaps on a fairground ride, a boat, inside a tent, on a plane, riding a camel?  Please email photos to the school office and include your child's name, class and place of photo. Winners will be chosen in the Autumn term. Good luck and keep reading!

Likewise all the positions will be up for re-election including Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary.  More details will follow next week on the process for nominating someone for any of the above roles.
