DETAILS OF DATES AND TIMES FOR OUR CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCES:
30th October 2017:
Welcome back to school for the second half of the Autumn Term.
We would like to draw your attention to the following:
The Lit and Phil and Newcastle Libraries ‘Books on the Tyne Event’ – The Newcastle Book Festival.
25th November -3rd December 2017
On Saturday 25th November at 11 a.m. at the City Library, we are proud to inform you that our Year 5 teacher Miss O’Reilly is reading a book she herself wrote as part of the above event.
Her book ‘The Boy with his Head Stuck in a Book’ uses augmented reality technology to make the book come alive.
Please pop along and support her at what we are sure will be a fabulous event.
For more information, we have booklets in school or visit the web site: www.booksontyne.co.uk or phone 01912774100/01912320191
10th October 2017:
Ivan Burn, the School Photographer will visit school on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th October. He will take photographs of individual children and siblings in school. If you would like to bring in pre school age children to have a photograph taken with their school age siblings on Monday afternoon, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
The Harvest Festival will take place in St. Andrew’s Church at 9.30 a.m. on Friday 20th October.
If you are able to come to the service and would be willing to walk up and down to church with the younger children, please meet in the school hall at 9.00 a.m.
These will be refreshments at school provided by Friends of Heddon School after the service.
As in previous years, the gifts of foodstuffs will be sent to the People’s Kitchen. The People’s Kitchen prefer tinned and dried goods if possible but all contributions are gratefully received.
If you would like to send a donation of food for the People’s Kitchen please send your contribution to school any time next week. Thank you very much for your support of this worthy cause.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD:
Your child will be bringing home a leaflet about the above project next week. As you will be aware this is a project we have supported many times in the past.
In addition we have been told of another worthy cause whereby the children fill an old but still serviceable back pack with pens, pencils etc which is then sent to children who do not have the benefit of such items. As soon as we have leaflets about this charitable project we will also send them home to you.
As always we would like to stress that it is entirely up to individual families which charities they choose to support.

VERY EXCITING NEWS
We have been successful in a bid to the MOD Education Support Fund and will shortly be the owners of a brand new school mini bus.
This is very exciting and will enable us to help parents, especially those who live at Albemarle Barracks or other outlying areas to come to school events and functions which they would otherwise be unable to attend due to transport issues. It will also enable the staff to take children to sporting events, concerts, music events etc where previously the cost of transport would have been prohibitive.
