Well that was great fun!
Last Friday evening’s Twilight Market was a huge success enjoyed by the hundreds of people in attendance. Credit must go to the band of Ormond community volunteers who worked tirelessly in preparation for the event. Their work over many months, along with those who assisted with the setup, running stalls on the day and at the cleanup, ensured that every aspect was a winner. A truly great celebration of a great Ormond school community in its 125th Year!
Lost Property from Twilight Market
Several items of property have been handed in to the office following the Twilight Market. If you believe you have misplaced any items please contact the front office.
Student Placements 2017
I have received a number of emails from parents regarding consideration of the social and emotional needs of students when we are forming class groups for next year. As I don’t retain notes from one year to the next parents will need to submit fresh correspondence even if we have spoken about the issues in previous years. I believe that issues raised in earlier times are often resolved as children mature and build a broader range of friends. Please email me on [email protected].
The closing date for the correspondence period is Friday, 2nd of December.
