Dear Parents

The School Council visited Hollingdean Materials Recovery on Monday where they saw what happens to our recycling when it leaves our doorsteps. Once we were in our hi-vis, goggles and hard hats we were led around the plant and shown how the recycling is separated into different materials. This then allows it to be sent off to the correct place to be turned into something new. The Council asked lots of interesting questions and are now going to plan a whole school assembly to relay all the information back to the whole school. We will be one step closer to getting our Bronze Award.

Pier and Pavilion visited Newhaven Fort on Wednesday. They experienced what an air raid would have felt like and they were surprised at how loud the sirens were. An ARP warden came to check on them. The children thought this was a great experience although they realised how frightening it would have been. After a talk at the activity centre they were able to handle WWII artefacts including gas masks.

Open Morning was a great success and lots of families came to see our amazing school. There was a wonderful buzz around as our Upper School pupils proudly toured the families and spoke about all the fantastic things that go on.

A few reminders for next week:-

Don’t forget to come along to our Open House on Monday 10th February between 8.30-9.00am. The children can’t wait to show you all their amazing work.

NSPCC Thank you assembly is on Thursday 13th February and so final sponsorship money needs to be in please.

We wish you a lovely weekend.

Best wishes

Mrs Gane, Mrs Mills and Ms Hayward
