Final Reminders Christmas Arrangements
Christmas Breakfast Friday 13.12.19
Friday 13th December is Christmas Breakfast. Please note that there will be no tuck sold on this day.
We have had an overwhelming response this year to the Christmas breakfast - we will be trying to serve over 400 people, within 2 hours - in 30 minute allocated slots! We really need your help, in the following ways:
1) Arrive at the correct time with your allocated ticket:
8.45 - 9.15 a.m. – yellow
9.20 - 9.50 a.m. - blue
9.55 - 10.25 a.m. - pink
10.30 - 11.00 – a.m. white
Please wait at the main entrance in the foyer. Your child will be sent to the hall at their allocated time to meet you, unless you have the very first slot (yellow) - then take your child straight to the main foyer, without them going into class first.
2) Wait in the queue, hand your ticket to the serving hatch, who will then pass you your food. Continue around to get a drink, take a seat, enjoy your breakfast and listen to the music. When the bell rings at the end of the session - please say goodbye, send your child back to class and leave by the door at the back of the hall, to avoid congestion.
Raffle tickets will be on sale at £1 per strip. We have a children's raffle and an adults' raffle. Both raffles will be drawn in assembly in the last week of term.
We will do our very best to ensure you are served as swiftly as possible. This is an enjoyable festive event, so we thank you in advance for your patience. Happy Christmas everyone!
Christmas Lunch (REC ONLY)- Tuesday 17.12.19
If you have pre-ordered a Christmas Lunch for your child they will be provided with a festive lunch. Remember there is no alternative this day – if you have not pre-ordered a lunch, please send your child with a packed lunch.
