March 2018


It was with great sadness we learnt of the untimely death of Teresa Porebska. Teresa was a parent in our school from September 2007 to June 2014 when she moved with her husband Miroslaw and children Blazej, Julia and Patryk back to their native Poland. We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to her husband and family. May she rest in peace

This is still a problem in some classes. It is important that you check your child’s hair using a fine comb each time they wash their hair. If your child has been treated for Headlice you still need to keep checking and fine combing to make sure no eggs remain in the hair.
