This term, we are collecting Team GB stickers, with Aldi’s Kit for Schools, for the chance to be one of twenty primary schools to win £20,000 to be used to help children to have their right to be healthy.
From 6th September to 3rd November, when you spend £30 or more in any Aldi store, you will receive a special Team GB sticker. If our school manages to collect 300 stickers, we will automatically receive an exclusive school sports kit, in addition to entry into the £20,000 prize draw.
Please send any stickers that you receive into school; this would be much appreciated. We look forward to receiving them
This weeks overall attendance was 96.6%, with Miss Hutchinson’s Year 4 class having 100% attendance two weeks and a row! Well Done 4T!
