Message from Mrs. Castell
Currently we are all looking resplendent in our spots and yellow as we celebrate Children in Need today. Thank you for your donations, we raised over £160 for this very worthy cause.
Rehearsals are in full swing for our Christmas events. Tickets for all performances will be available at https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/writtle-infant-school from 6pm this evening. Due to limited space in the hall, we need to restrict audience numbers, so a maximum of 2 tickets is available per family. There are two performances for Years 1 and 2, so you can buy two tickets for one performance, or one ticket per performance. We are asking for a £3 donation to our Hub fund for each ticket, which includes an online booking fee of 30p. This is a way for the school to raise much needed funds for a project that will benefit all children, but we are very conscious that times are difficult at the moment, so please talk to us if the donation is an issue for you. We absolutely do not want anyone to miss their child's performance due to cost.
Next week is the last week for staff clubs. Please check our clubs timetable for the final dates of all other clubs.
This week's tip from our Eco Warriors is to make sure you put thicker clothes on in the evening and only put the heating on if you really need it!
There are no HIPIP awards today but these will return next week. Attendance this week is 95.4% compared to our school target of 96%.
Finally, a reminder that parents of children due to start Reception or Year Three in September 2023 must apply for their school place by 15th January 2023. Late applicants risk losing a place at their preferred school. We have open days next Wednesday and on 12th December, please invite family and friends who may be interested.
Have a wonderful weekend.
