It’s a busy and slightly different week at RTS with the arrival of the world cycling championships to Harrogate. We are very aware that for some families this will make getting to and from school very difficult on certain days. If you find that you are struggling please let us know via the school office.
On Tuesday we will be closing at 1pm following the advice of race organisers; parents can collect their children in the usual way from classroom doors at 1pm. On Wednesday we will be offering an optional parental collection at 1pm for those families concerned by the impact of races on their journey. Please note for those parents who chose not to collect their children school will operate as normal until 3.15pm. After school clubs will operate as normal for those children unaffected by the cycling events taking place around Harrogate.
On Wednesday morning 15 children from year 6 will be visiting the fan zone at the invitation of British Cycling who will be giving them cycle coaching on bikes provided.
Friday sees the Friends hosting the annual Macmillan Coffee morning in the Hall; the event will run from 9am-11am in the school hall. Please note that, if you are coming to the coffee morning, some of the roads in the area around Bilton will be closed between 10am and 12am. On Friday, we will be celebrating our first Super Pupil’s of the new term, handing out certificates to the children chosen by class teachers.
Congratulations to Mrs Crisell who has been chosen as one of the finalists in the ‘Science Teacher of the Year Awards for 2019’ The selection is fully deserved for such a talented teacher and we will keep everything crossed for her in the final.
Parents of Dentdale class can find their weekly blog published on the school website telling you all about their week at school.
