Homework Club in Prep – A message from Ms Ingram-Cordrey
Please could I request that if you wish for your child to attend Homework Club that you book your child in using SOCS.
When collecting your child, please wait under the arch and your child will be brought to you. However, if you need to collect your child earlier, please go to the Prep Office and speak to Anna Harvey who will arrange for your child to leave the club and meet you under the arch.
Homework club will not be supervised by a member of the teaching staff after 5pm. We encourage parents to collect children at this time, however, if you require your child to remain at school until 5.30pm we are able to accommodate this.
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us last Friday. We hope you found it useful. Please find here a link to the presentation, delivered by Ms Ingram-Cordrey, to parents who are new to the Prep School.
Co-Curricular Clubs and Activities Sign Up
SOCS sign up continues to be open - please book your child in as soon as possible if there is a club they wish to join. The Early Bird Cross Country Club which takes place on Friday mornings, would be grateful for more enthusiastic runners. If you have any queries regarding co-curricular clubs or the use of SOCS, please email email@example.com
School Trips 2019/20
Please see attached a list of the trips we intend to run for Prep children during the course of this academic year.
Make A Difference Day (MaDD) Wednesday 2 October
Make a Difference Day is very important at Radnor House. On this day the whole school has the opportunity to visit and support a local site or charity. It matters to us that all the students get involved in supporting the local community. We are conscious that the attitudes students develop here will remain with them throughout their lives, so we foster a culture of respect in which our pupils can learn to appreciate their responsibility towards other members of society.
Please find attached a brief overview of the sites we will be visiting this year. Next week, you will receive an electronic brochure and exact details of what is required of you and your child/ren on this day. As a prior warning, for the more local sites we ask parents to arrange to transport their children to and from the site they are attending and we also request parents to supply a packed lunch on this day.
Prep Cookery Club
Please note that the drop off box for cookery club ingredients will now be at the Senior School, by the black door opposite the Prep School. Please drop your children’s ingredients there at the start of school and the children will collect from there on their way to the club.
SEND Coffee Morning - REMINDER
Just a reminder that the SEND coffee morning is on Tuesday 17 September at 8.20am. Please do come along to catch up after the summer, and to meet our new and old team.
I look forward to seeing you then. Min Hancock
Performing Arts Timetables
The Performing Arts Timetables are available here. Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change. Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom. The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.
Please check the timetables and if you do not see your child's name please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Second Hand Uniform Shop
The Second Hand Uniform Shop has a new, larger home on the ground floor of the senior school this school year. We are always very grateful for all your kind donations of uniform, which last year enabled us to take in the region of nearly £3700, all of which goes to the school's chosen charities.
Thanks to all your donations, we have run out of clothes hangers. So if you’re overrun by them at home we would be very happy to take these from you, as well as any uniform you no longer need.
The shop will be open on Thursdays from 4-5pm, but Penny also keeps a stock list at home and is always happy to pick up items and leave them for you to collect at other times, or can arrange a time to meet you there. You can contact her via email email@example.com
Unfortunately, registration for the Triathlon is now closed. There are a couple of spaces available in Gold and one space in Bronze where competitors have recently withdrawn.
Should you wish to take one of these spaces, we will need the full name of the competitor, date of birth and emergency contact Name and telephone number. The entrance fee of £10 will need to be paid at registration on Saturday. We will also require your permission for event photographs to be used by the school.
Please let me know ASAP and I will make the necessary amendments and send you the the competitor information. Mr Kemp - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please find attached the lunch menu for next week.
