Amaze – the Brighton Based charity – will be launching their Compass Card West Sussex in the spring, following on from their Brighton and Hove card that has been running for a while now. The card is aimed at making fun and socialising more affordable for 0-25 yr olds. In advance of the launch they would like parents and children to take part in a survey, or take part in a focus group, so that the card really reflects what you and your young people need. We have questionnaires in the office if you would like a copy. Otherwise you can contact amaze by phone – 0300 123 9186 or e-mail Contact Amaze Brighton.

There will be holiday activity sessions for children with special educational needs at the Ifield West Community centre on Tuesday 27th October. The morning session 10am—1pm is for ages 5-10, then the afternoon 1.30pm—4.30pm is for 11 years upwards. There will be arts and crafts, cookery, sports, dance, treasure hunts and many more activities. Please call 01527 573745 to book a place.

Next week is half term. When we return to school we will only have a few weeks before the Christmas Fair on Saturday 21st Nov. We need your help to make it a success!! We will be having 3 non uniform Fridays in exchange for items we can sell or use at the fair.

Also if you, or maybe your employer, could donate a raffle prize that would be wonderful. In the past we have kindly been donated vouchers, TV’s, Hampers, just to give you an idea.
