Busy Bees in Year 7!

Six Year 7 students raised over £100 from a recent bake sale. They are going to donate most of it to the bumblebee conservation trust and use the remainder to purchase wildflower seeds to make our school more insect friendly.  Well done to Rosie K, Mai T, Ellen C, Mia T, Renate K and Libby C.

 

 

HEADLICE & NITS

Parents and Carers are being advised to keep an eye out for head lice and nits, as this common problem usually affects school-aged children and their families.

Though head lice and nits may be a nuisance, they don’t cause serious illness or carry any diseases and can be treated at home with a fine tooth comb or over-the-counter medication. See NHS website for more details
