Dear Parents, Students and Teachers,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome all new families to CES as well as the new teachers. As we near the end of the first month of school the students and teachers have settled into routine and great things are taking place in each and every classroom.
This week all classes have been voting for their class representative for the new school parliament. The students have had to write and present their own speeches to their classes before voting commenced.
In 3A, Yahia wrote and presented a very persuasive speech that led to his election; he wrote...
"...if someone hits you, the answer is not hitting back, the first thing you do is to tell him, I don't like that. If he does it again you must tell the teacher... Rules are what keep us safe and ready, every single rule is important so please don't break them... because it is ridiculous."
Wise words from Yahia in Year 3.
Year 6 becoming familiar with the science labs and their new curriculum.
Thank you to all of the parents that attended this week's learning mornings. As so many of you commented, it has been an excellent start to the year
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some important information regarding Transportation and After School Activities (ASAs)
ASAs start next week on Sunday 30th September, if your child has signed up for an activity; it is their responsibility to attend every week. Students cannot attend an ASA if they are not registered. Students will meet their ASA teacher in the quad and will be escorted to the front of the school at the end of the ASAs.
All buses leave CES at 3:15pm prompt. If Year 4 - 6 are not on the bus by 3:15 the bus will depart without them and parents will be called to collect their child. All Year 3 students are escorted to the buses and Years 4 - 6 are escorted to the bus gate by 3:10 at the latest. Therefore, there is no reason for any Key Stage Two student to miss the bus, unless they are not with the teacher when they should be.
Please ensure that if your child's transportation arrangements change, it is your responsibility to call the school before 1pm to ensure there is time to get a message to your child. If we do not receive parental communication, we will insist your child takes their normal transport home.
