Before we look ahead to the last week of term, I would like to thank everyone who supported our Harvest Festival last week. We had a fantastic response to our request for goods and both the Harrogate Foodbank and the elderly in our local community will benefit from the generosity of everyone in our school community.
I also need to congratulate Amy Lever who also won her age group competition at the recent Harrogate Schools’ Event and has qualified for the regional finals.
Other competition winners include Martha Allsopp and Juliet Littlefair who, have been announced as the winner and runner up of the Harrogate Fairtrade Poster Competition.
Monday is a very busy day with Nidderdale enjoying a Chocolate Day and the children from key stage 2 being joined by children from across Harrogate for a very special Skype call with the astronaut Chris Hadfield during the afternoon,
Monday also sees the Waitrose token collection scheme naming RTS as one of its chosen charities, please remember to ask for your token and put it in the correct slot.
On Tuesday the children will have the opportunity to enjoy tasty street food as the kitchen team lay on a special street food menu for the day. It is also the early Parents Evening starting straight after school. The late Parent’s Evening will take place on Thursday, I look forward to seeing everyone there.
Please remember that the school is closed on Friday for staff training. The focus for our work is renewing the structure of our curriculum plans. It is also that last day for Mrs Rothera as she begins her maternity leave. We wish her all the best and look forward to sharing good news with you in the near future.
School reopens on Monday 4th November and a reminder that the Scholastic Book Fair is in school during this week with the Book Fair being held on Thursday 7th November.
I hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable half term.
