Dear Parents/Carers, Many thanks to all the children who took part in the Easter competitions today. All of the entries were of an amazing standard and Keith Spencer our caretaker had the extremely difficult job of choosing the winners.

The main prizes will be awarded in assembly tomorrow morning, but all of the children who participated will have a small prize.
