Happy Halloween!

Halloween Dinner on PhotoPeach

Today children were invited to take part in a delicious Halloween Dinner that was kindly prepared by our creative kitchen staff!

As you can see from the pictures above, everyone had a ghoulish time! The menu included choices such as Blood Burgers and Giant Dragon Droppings as well as Monster Mousse and Vampire Blood!!

We are very lucky to have such a wonderful team in the kitchen who always surprise and delight us with their creations.

On Friday children are invited to take part in a menu which will celebrate Eid – we will post more pictures of the festivities on the day.

Are you going Trick or Treating tonight? If you are, here are some tips for staying safe;
* Have adult supervision.
*Safety in numbers. If your parents say that you are old enough to trick-or-treat without an adult, stay in a group.
*Map out your plan. Make sure an adult knows which houses or streets you are visiting.
*Try tick-or-treat-friendly homes. Houses that are decorated for Halloween are more likely to answer to Trick or Treaters.
*Stay outside. Make sure you don’t go inside someone’s house.
*Remain visible. Dress in a bright costume so others can see you. If your costume is dark, wear reflective strips or carry a glow stick or flashlight.
*Don’t forget the Green Cross Code when you are crossing the roads.

For now, have Haunting Halloween!!

Disco Dudes & Divas

It was brilliant to see so many of you come out to the Disco on the 18th October! Everyone had a fantastic time dancing to the music that DJ Barry played. We saw some amazing dancing from Joe in 3b, Korie in 4a and even Mr Hanes showed us some moves!

We managed to raise £140 which will be donated to Oldham Cats in Middleton. Mr and Mrs Hanes volunteer tirelessly for the charity, and as a school we have enjoyed seeing and hearing about the work they do.

Thank you to everyone who came out on the night!

Safety on Our Roads

Did you know that the streets surrounding our school have recently been changed to 20mph Zones?

You will probably notice the new 20mph signs around Charter Street, Clarendon Street & Watkin Street, which were designed by our own very talented Kaleem Ashiq in Class 6a as part of a competition by the Road Safety Team in Rochdale.

This measure is to protect YOUR children.

It has been noted that some parents are still ‘speeding’ on these roads & parking inconsiderately.

Please take heed of the signs, and remember that driving slowly on school roads could save YOUR child’s life.

Please could all parents remember that the Staff Car Park is for Staff only, and should not be used at all by parents as a turning-circle or ‘quick drop-off point’.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
