As I write the Year 6 boys are enjoying some joie de vivre over in Boulogne as part of their French studies: a nice bit of mild weather for the excursion. Thanks to the parents and staff for getting up way before dawn to enable this expedition.
The football season has been really successful so far: Great competitive fixtures for all the teams and a couple of enjoyable weekend fixtures recently too. At the Fulham Prep tournament, our team won – gold medals for all! Thanks for all the touch line support from parents. On such, we were delighted to hear that the Homefield Parents’ Association have raised enough funds for us to purchase some portable floodlights for the pitch. It’s rather difficult to get planning permission for floodlights in a suburban area, as you might imagine. However, we can simply charge these lights and roll them into any position to enable a whole range of twilight sports to be beautifully illuminated: Such a practical and appreciated donation!
Thanks very much then to all the parents who have attending the various fundraising events over the last year to enable this.
A final reminder of the ‘Class List’ tool: https://www.classlist.com. It’s easy to use and a great way in to the social side of school and Parents’ Association events. It is also moderated and safe to use; a simple way of gaining news from the Parents’ Association. This is in addition to all the formal information flow from the School (‘Headlines’, ParentMail, website, Twitter, Facebook, et al). Do go to these sources for accurate information and bear in mind that unregulated platforms, such as WhatsApp, may be less than reliable.
