Good afternoon

Well done to the Form Six’s and Form Five’s this week who have both undergone exams and interviews. They have managed so well and the younger years have been very grown up, respectfully keeping the noise to a minimum whilst these were going on in school.

Marylebone Project

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those donations made this morning towards the Marylebone Project. We were overwhelmed and so grateful for the effort that parents made with donations. Cans, pasta and all sorts of goodies were dropped off this morning to a delighted team at the charity who wanted to extend their thanks to you all.

Travel plans over Christmas
Please notify CHS if you are planning on travelling abroad over Christmas. We will need these details so we we can ensure any quarantine is adhered to if needed in order to safeguard the school and community in the new term

DVD/USB of Christmas Carol Concert
Although parents are not invited to this year’s carol concert, the children have been working hard to put together something special. There will be a combination of festive poetry, solo performances, duets and musical recitals, along with the traditional Christmas Carols. I am sure that your children are looking forward to enjoying watching the show together with you during the Christmas break. As it will be a very fast turnaround from filming to delivery, we ask all parents to notify the school office by Monday, 7 December so the format can be ordered in good time. Orders can be confirmed on secretary@connaughthouseschool.co.uk

Uniforms
All pupils must be in their winter duffle coat when they return to school in January 2021. Gilets can be worn underneath for additional warmth but are not sufficient on their own now that the weather is very cold. Please also make sure that both parts of your child’s 3-in-1 jacket is named on their return in January.

The Christmas cards/mugs/coasters have arrived this afternoon and will be ready on Tuesday afternoon at pick up.

Reminders
The post box is closing on Monday 7 December, so please make sure any Christmas cards that the children want to write to their classmates/teachers/pupils in other years, are brought in by this date. All cards will be sprayed before the designated postman delivers them.
