End of Winter Term, Christmas, and Beginning of Spring Term in Primary

Hi all,

Here at Primary we are organising exciting activities for our students to enjoy the end of Winter Term, celebrate Christmas, and also giving key dates to ensure a smooth beginning of Spring Term in January 2020.

A letter will be given to parents and carers with invitations to special activities in school (Christmas Show included!), Christmas Dinner, among other exciting activities to bring families together.

In the mean time, have a look at the calendar we’ve prepared and if you have any questions, we will be more than happy to help.

Also, as a friendly reminder, please have in mind that these January dates are set, and should we change them, we would inform you in writing.

Have a wonderful break and see you on Tuesday 7th January on structured conversations.

NRC Primary Family Friday

Hi there!

It’s very important for children to develop solid relationships with their parents and for parents to spend quality time with their little ones.

Hence why we’ve come up with the idea of creating a Family Friday every week!

We have different activities planned and options available for you to choose which one you prefer!

And, we will have some breakfast available too!

We are looking forward to see those happy faces all over 🙂

See you then!
