Comic relief – Red Nose Day
Next Friday (24th March)
We will be raising funds by having a “bad hair/non uniform day” and a bake sale. If you can, please send in a donation and some money for your child to buy some cakes. If you would also like to bake and send in some small cakes to be sold that would be fantastic. Thank you.
Autism Awareness Week
Monday 27th March – Friday 31st March
The whole school will join in to celebrate our children’s special interests. There will be special events and activities going on around the school for all of the children to take part.
Friday 31st will be a non uniform day. The student council has been discussing the theme and have come up with a wide brief! They would like the children to wear either: pink or purple, pyjamas or onesies, or clothes that reflect their special interest i.e. Thomas the Tank Engine. If possible please send in a donation of £1 towards the National Autistic Society.
On Tuesday (2nd) there will be an Autism Support Day at the college (see attached for details) Once again Robyn Steward will be the keynote speaker. Patrons Anna Kennedy OBE and Austin Hughes will be there and Anna’s barrister husband Sean will be delivering a workshop on EHCPs. There will be lots of other informative talks, workshops and busy information stands from local service providers. It’s going to be a great day!! Book your places for workshops and lunch ASAP as spaces are limited.
We are starting to prepare for our amazing Easter Celebrations which will take place throughout the last week of term. Between now and then we need to collect an awful lot of eggs!! Our good friends at Sainsbury’s are supporting us once again, but in addition we would like all of our children to bring in one medium and one small egg. There is no need to name the eggs unless your child has a specific dietary requirement as all the eggs are shared. Please remember that we are a nut free school.
Back to the Trenches
On Saturday, Gabriel in Beech Class and his dad will be taking part in a “Back to the Trenches” mud run to raise money for The Spring Board Project. The Springboard Project will be familiar to many of you, through their centres in Horsham and Crawley, supporting children and their families through inclusive play and social opportunities. To sponsor them go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/TeamAlexander-Springboard
An item of jewellery has been found in the car park. If you have lost something recently please pop into the office to see if it is yours.
