Pupil Voice
Today we had a visit from Pat and her guide dog Zebedee. Pat and Zebedee are volunteers from the charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind. Pat explained to the children during our assembly how guide dogs help people with various disabilities. This is what the children had to say:
Codie said, “When a fast car came around the corner Zebedee stood on his back paws and pushed Pat out of the way. Guide Dogs need lots of training.”
Lillie-Mae said, “Pat told us all about her guide dog and how much she has to trust in him. The teachers made an obstacle course out of the chairs in the hall, and Pat gave Zebedee directions on which way to go and he knew what she was saying.”  
 
Tennis Tornament
On Wednesday 3 April children from Years 3 and 4 competed in a tennis tournament at the Deal Leisure Centre. The team was made up of; Taylor, Olly, Scarlett and Luca. They played in great spirit and enjoyed the afternoon whilst displaying some great skills during their matches.
 
School Lockers
Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.
