A busy week ahead for primary pupils. Please note the below dates and times carefully! 

Monday 11th June
This morning the Tribe which has been awarded the most tribal point this Cal will have the opportunity to spend a few hours with the Salvadorean softball team, who will set up some games for them and also do some coaching.

Monday 11th June - 5.00 - 8.30pm 5th Grade Leavers party
A special end of term celebration for a special group of children. The grade 5 pupils will be remembering their years in the primary school and celebrating the end of term with ‘Glow in the Dark ‘party in the PAC.

Tuesday 12th June:
10.00 -11.00am 2nd and 3rd Grade Talent Show

Tuesday 12th June - 6.00pm Meeting for parents of children going on this year’s UK trip

Thursday 14th June - 7.30 - 9.30am - 5th Grade Graduation and achievement ceremony
The culmination of eight years in the primary school for some of our pupils! Our graduation and achievement ceremony for our grade 5 pupils is a very special occasion which we are sure parents will remember for many years to come. This is a very important occasion for our Grade 5 pupils and not really appropriate for younger siblings if it is likely that they will detract from this special event.

Thursday 14th June - 4th Grade end of year trip
Grade 4 have organised an exciting and fun packed trip to a private social club called ''Deportivo''. The students will get the opportunity to play football, basketball and swim in the pool! The students have all been working very hard during the course of the year and this will be a great reward for them. It is also a chance for the children to say goodbye to their current teachers before they make the important transition into 5th grade. The children will already be leaving 4th grade with some memorable experiences and this trip to Deportivo is going to be the icing on the cake! 

Friday 15th June - 12.00 noon School closes for summer holiday

Thursday 23rd August - School reopens for pupils.

HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
The United Kingdom celebrates the 60th anniversary of the accession to the throne on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. We shall also be celebrating in school on Tuesday with “Cake and Bunting”. Students: participate in the Jubilee Quiz which will be out on Tuesday - “What does the Queen do in the opening of Parliament?”.
Do you remember the Queen’s Golden Jubilee? Ten years ago we named the Primary School’s new library the “Jubilee Library” to celebrate this event.

Influenza inoculation
Thank you to Dr Millian and her team for giving over 200 influenza inoculations over the last two days. This version is the latest type and so augments the one given last December.
