Parent Lunches

We invite parents into school twice yearly, to enjoy a delicious school dinner with their children. You have the chance to be a 'fly on the wall' and see what your children get up to across the school day. Watch out for regular features in our newsletters or please ask at the school office for more information. We also invite parents to an end of year picnic to celebrate the past year.
