March 2008

Traffic Issues

  • During the past few months, many complaints have been received from the residents in Seatown and Chapel Lane with regard to illegal parking
  • Your attention is drawn to the fact that our insurers insist that parents or guardians are not allowed to drive into the school grounds between 8.15 a.m. and 3.30 p.m.


The taking of class photographs will occur during the first week back in school after the Easter vacation. Please ensure that your son has his full uniform on each day except the PE days
