Glow Day —Non -uniform

Friday 22nd November 2019

As the weather is now changing and the days are getting darker, we will be having a non- uniform “Glow Day”, which will take place on Friday 22nd November 2019. Please encourage your children to wear bright clothes as there will be prizes for the top three brightly dressed children. There is no cost for this event. We simply want to promote safety.
