Please get in touch with Karen in the office if you would like tickets which will be given out a week before the game which is Sunday 10 Sept.
COVID Isolation Rules Removed: You will have seen the Government has announce the removal of the mandatory COVID isolation rule, which took effect of 15th August 2023. The last of the COVID restrictions were removed following public health officials advice that COVID-19 is now considered low compared to other stages of the pandemic.
What does this mean for us? As with any other illness it is recommended that children stay home if unwell and should follow Ministry of Health guidelines in order to stop the spread of illness and keep others safe.
Ministry of Health Guidelines: If you test positive for COVID-19, it is recommended you isolate for 5 days, even if you only have mild symptoms.

PET DAY – Wednesday 11th October
With Pet Day coming up in the first week of next term, it is time to start thinking about your Pet.
This year we will be judging the pets in four categories – Dogs, Cats, other Household Pets and ‘Non breathing Pets’ (pet rocks, stuffed toys). Children with dogs will be asked to lead them as part of the judging.
Lambs will be judged on rearing, leading and calling, and calves on rearing and leading.
All children with pets will be expected to complete an overview of how they look after their pet which will form part of the judging. This form will be distributed just prior to the holidays and must be returned within the first two days of Term 4 for the pet to be judged. This form will also include lambs and calves.
CUP REMINDER – Could we please have all pet day cups/trophies from last year returned to the school office asap. Thank you.
BULL CALF NOMINATION SCHEME
As the Bobby Calf scheme has been wound up, the school unfortuntely misses out on a significant fundraiser. Please consider the Bull Calf Nomination scheme, where a bull calf is reared by you and the proceeds from the sale of the calf would go to the school. We understand that this is a difficult year for some people, but any support would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
