BLOCK 3 AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

Dear Parents

Welcome to Block 3 after school activities for 2017/2018.

Block 2 activities continue next week and Block 3 will run from Monday 12th February to Friday 6th April 2018.

Please find below the activity options open to Primary Students in Grade 1-Grade 5

  • Block 3 activities will begin Monday 12THFebruary and end on Friday 6th April 2018.
  • We have tried to provide both breadth and balance to ensure that there is something for everyone.
  • Activities are not compulsory for Primary School students, but they provide a good opportunity for children to develop their skills in a particular area of interest, as well as a chance to try something new.
  • We are trying to develop an ethos of thoughtful selection and perseverance. Once activities have been assigned children will not be able to change to a different activity. So please spend some time with your child to help them make their choices. The link for signing up is below.
  • The link for the sign-ups will be emailed next week and will also be on the class sites.
  • If your child is in the Primary School Track and Field team, please ensure that they make their usual activity choices for Tuesdays, (Wednesdays) and Thursdays. They will continue with training until after the competition and can then join the activity that they have been assigned.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards

Sue
