Crazy Hair Day
Yet another huge thank you for all the help and support given by children, parents, staff and everybody else for the efforts at the end of last term to raise money for Esmee. By the end of the day, the total amount was in the region of £1,000.
A special thanks to Faye Jones and friends who made and sold some delicious cakes, raising over £160.
Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle to school every day, particularly now as the weather is getting warmer. To reduce costs and help the environment, we are not able to issue plastic cups.

Advance notice—from September 2017 school meals will rise to £2.00 per day. This is still less than the majority of schools within Blackburn with Darwen/Lancashire. Our meals are well-balanced, healthy and of course tasty.
Well done to Mrs Mears and Miss Hession who both completed the West Lancashire Spring Triathlon during the holidays. They also raised some money for the Little Princess Trust. Well done ladies.
