It’s December and we’re starting to look forward to Christmas! The decorations are up and we have lots of festive activities planned starting with the Christmas Bazaar on Wednesday 12th December, when Mary Berry will be our special guest to judge the baking competition. The girls will be going on our traditional visit to the Pantomime later in the term, which is “Aladdin” at the Elgiva Theatre and is kindly sponsored by Happy Days Charity. Apart from the usual Christmas lunch and parties, we also have the annual Rotary party and Christmas disco, with the option of a quieter activity for those who prefer a more relaxed time. I’m sure Christmas at Alfriston will be a time to remember for everyone.
The hens are happily enjoying the extension to the run, and keeping us well supplied with eggs. Two of the chicks have turned out to be cockerels and are now fully grown and crowing. Perhaps we’ll have more chicks in the Spring!
Plans are going ahead to start the pool build in January 2013, and although we know that this will necessarily involve some disruption we are extremely excited at the prospect of having our own indoor pool on site.
Please could you check that we have a current emergency contact number for you as we have had several unobtainable numbers recently and it’s vital that we can contact you should an emergency arise.
I hope to see many of you in school during the run up to Christmas. Please join us at the Christmas Bazaar next week and at our Carol Service on the last day of term. I wish you all a very happy Christmas time.
