Term 1, Week 5 - 2020

At this morning’s assembly representatives of St Albans Church presented our school with a donation to assist with the cycle track project. This donation was the proceeds from a recent car boot sale held by the church. Thanks so much to everyone involved in the fundraising.


If your child is unwell with flu-like symptoms, PLEASE do not send them to school. We are receiving daily updates from both the Ministry of Education and Health regarding the Covid19 virus. Their advice is for anyone showing symptoms of a viral illness, is to stay home and telephone Healthline 0800 358 5453 if you require further advice. They do not consider there to be any need for schools to even be considering closing at this stage. We have spoken with the children about the importance of thorough handwashing using soap, covering coughs and sneezes with a clean tissue or their elbow, and putting used tissues into a bin. We would appreciate your support with reinforcing these things at home and rely on you to make wise decisions. We have also given the children a simple explanation of how viruses work as we consider this may help with restricting the spread of any virus.
