Hot Weather

Bore da, we hope everyone is enjoying this lovely sunshine.
The hot weather has been forecast to continue for the rest of this week, therefore to keep everyone as comfortable as possible, parents may allow their children to wear their own clothing e.g. shorts / T-shirts with suitable footwear (no flip flops, flimsy sandals, mules, crocs, etc) to school each day this week if you so wish. NO FOOTBALL KITS OR HEAVILY BRANDED CLOTHING PLEASE. If their P.E kit is in school, you may collect this tomorrow for a wash and also use this during the week if you prefer.
Suncream, water bottles and hats / caps are essential for school this week please.
Junior sports will go ahead tomorrow afternoon, we have plenty of shade for the children, activities are short and will be adjusted where necessary. Junior children need to come to school wearing their school P.E kit which was sent home last week. Please ensure that your child brings a cap / hat, has their water bottle in school, suncream has been applied and that anyone who uses an inhaler has this with them.
Parents /grandparents who are joining us are welcome to set up a gazebo / parasol in the spectator area which is to the left of the track behind the rope from 12.30pm to provide some shade for yourselves if you so wish. The main pedestrian gate will be unlocked at 12.30pm. Please avoid sitting on or near the trim trail as part of this area has been sectioned off to help us manage all of the children. You are welcome to bring chairs / rugs along to sit on.
The children have access to replenishing their water bottles at anytime during the day and we will ensure that these are full before they come out onto the field. Additional water will also be available for the children throughout and we do have a cool treat for partway through the events. If you are bringing any items for the children, e.g. forgotten cap / water bottle, please hand these in to Mr Hill at the office before going onto the field where they will be passed to your child. We would be grateful if you could make any other family members coming along aware of this too.
Many thanks for all of your support.
