I am very pleased to inform you that Oldbury Shop has donated £500 to our school. This money will be spent on replacing the roof on the outdoor area for our Reception children. May I take this opportunity to thank the Friends of our school, especially Lee Griffiths who spent the half term holiday refurbishing the roof over the welly area for us. It is very much appreciated.
Could I also thank Robyn Major, James Withers, Martyn Hopkins, Martin Greenwood and Becky Kingscott who have all been into school over the half term involved in tidying up our school – which all contributes to making a better learning environment for our children – thank you all very much for your help.
I also want to thank the Friends for paying for new chairs for our staffroom, they are much appreciated as the old ones were literally falling apart!
I also want to thank you all for your donations to Thornbury food bank, we had quite a collection of food items to donate (picture on school website) and thank you all for your generosity at the end of term cake sale.
Finally, I have some sad news – Mrs Ovens, who has worked at Oldbury School for many years, is leaving us at Easter. Mrs Ovens currently works Monday and Tuesdays in Class 2 and she will be greatly missed by us all. I am sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs Ovens all the very best for the future.
