MILLICHOPE CROSS COUNTRY EVENT

All Key Stage 2 children will be taking part in this inter-school cross country competition at Millichope Estate on Monday 24th September. The event starts at 1.00pm. The children will travel to the event by school minibus and will be accompanied by Mrs Wilson, Mrs Child and Mrs Collins. Thank you to the Millichope Estate for hosting this event. Good luck to everyone.

RUSHBURY SCHOOL KITCHEN

On Friday 16th November, Jennifer and Dawn Allison will no longer be providing the children’s school meals. We would like to thank them for the service they have provided. We are looking for new caterers to take on the provision of school meals from Monday 19th November. Please let us know if you are interested, or know of anyone who would be interested in taking on this service. Thank you.

END OF DAY PROCEDURES

Please could we ask all parents and carers picking up children at the end of the day to wait on the top playground behind the wall.  We need the space to manage the children travelling by taxi. Once the taxi children have left, you are welcome to sit and meet on the bench below.

PHOTO PERMISSION SLIP

There are a few people who have not returned their photo permission slips. Please could you do this as soon as possible. There are some super photos of recent activities in the School Blog on the website. Thank you.

YEAR 5 AND 6 NETBALL TOURNAMENT

On Thursday 27th September at 1.00pm, the Year 5 and 6 children will be taking part in the inter-school netball championships at Church Stretton Secondary School. Please could children in Class 3 have their PE kit in school. They will be travelling by school minibus and will be accompanied by Mrs Pye and Mrs Child.

VOLUNTEER PAINTERS NEEDED

The picket fencing and Class 1 veranda need painting. Following the ‘Friends’ meeting on Monday evening, it was suggested that parents and friends of Rushbury School could get together to paint this woodwork. Therefore they are organising a volunteer painting day on Sunday 7th October. Paint and paint brushes will be available. If you are able to spare the time to help, please complete the reply slip attached and return to school by Friday 28th September. Thank you
