With no rain last night the immediate danger of flooding has passed. School open as normal but car park likely to be closed all week.
After speaking to the local authority transport department this morning I have made the decision to close the school at 1 O’Clock today due to the risk of flooding.
Please arrange for your children to be collected at school at 1 O’Clock if you normally collect them. If they normally come on one of the school buses they will be collected at 1pm and dropped off in the usual place. It is important that you have contacted the school to confirm there will be someone to collect your child off the bus.
Please telephone or email into school when you receive this message so we know what your arrangements are for collection.
On Friday the qualifying cross country runners took part in the level 2 school games, which was held at Oswestry School.
A huge well done to Huw, Lily-Mae, Izzy, Tilly and Amber who all ran fanatastically well! An amazing achievement to get through to this stage!
One of our very talented athletes (Amber) finished in 3rd position and will represent North Shropshire in the County final of the school games which will take place in early March.
Last night, Bryn Offa’s athletic superstars produced another dazzling display to retain the Oswestry area indoor athletics title for the third successive year.. The individual and team performances from the children truly were a sight to behold. A fantastic effort from the team, who have trained hard during their break times. well done to all the pupils involved.
Class 1 enjoyed a sunny morning walk up to Llanymynech Rock to look for fossils. We were amazed by how many incredible fossils we found of sea creatures, plants and shells. We didn’t find any dinosaur fossils…this time.
Today, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Sheila, who works for Cats Protection. During her assembly, she talked about what the charity does and how to take care of a cat. The children all got to go home with a mask and an activity booklet. I am hoping to arrange for Sheila to visit us again and complete a workshop with each class in School.
On Friday, Class 4 had a cheerleading lesson, led by Chris. All of the children enjoyed the experience and some of them have even decided to join the club which runs on Saturdays in Oswestry.
This term, Textile Club have been making Day of the Dead masks out of felt. This allowed them to practice different stitches. Miss Hughes and I are really impressed with the final products especially by those children who have never practiced sewing before. I am sure you will be impressed too!
