School news

Healthy Schools Award

As a school we are working towards a Healthy Schools award [bronze] organised by Mytime Active. Part of the award is to look at our healthy food policy and of course, the food we eat.   On Thursday we had a visit from two assessors, Jillian and Toln.  They joined us for lunch and enjoyed a very nice chicken curry, rice and salad followed by lemon yoghurt.  They asked us to pass on their thanks to the Chef as they really enjoyed the food, as we all did!

Next week at Parayhouse

Next week Neptune and Saturn groups will be visiting Kensington Palace. This visit has been planned to help the children understand what a palace can look like and will benefit their work in art lessons at school, in preparation for our production of Beauty and the Beast this term.
