Read for Good Readathon
We launched our Readathon yesterday to encourage our pupils to get reading! They must decide on their own challenge - it could be a few pages everyday, or perhaps a certain number of books. All funds raised will go towards raising money for providing books and story tellers to children in UK hospitals. The deadline for completion is Friday 22 March. More details can be found here. Good luck and get reading! Please return all sponsorship forms to the Prep Office.
Digital Sunset Challenge
If your child took part in the Digital Sunset Challenge during Internet Safety Week it would be most helpful if you could complete an evaluation form to help us to gauge how effective the Challenge has been and improve any further events. Your responses will be shared with the Digital Sunset Team. Please complete the attached evaluation by Friday 15 March.
