Christmas Party Food and Reusable Crockery
The children will be having a party lunch in the classrooms, there should be enough food for 6 people. Your child has chosen what they would like to bring and we have put a sticker in their diary. Please bring this food in on the day of the party in a named reusable container. Please ensure that your child’s food does not contain nuts.
BHS have been working hard to try and be as green as possible. In order to cut down on the waste and use of plastic cutlery and paper plates, we would kindly ask that your child brings in a set of reusable crockery (plate, cutlery, bowl and cup) for the Christmas Party. We would really appreciate your support in this.
Old Electronics Collection
We are hoping to collect old electronic or battery operated items and toys that have moving parts that are no longer needed as part of our Makers stock. If you have anything you can donate please send it to school and put it in the collection box in the foyer labelled Old Electronics.
