15th October 2018
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to confirm the arrangements for the last day of this half term.
School will finish at the usual time of 3:10pm on Friday 19th October. We have been asked by one of our parents, whose family has recently been affected by cancer, to support the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre by raising funds for the ‘The Big Lego Brick Hospital’. Pupils will be allowed to wear their own clothes on the last day of the half term in return for a donation of £1. Each £1 buys a brick for a scaled model structure. The new cancer hospital is due for completion in the heart of Liverpool by Spring 2020. The link for the LEGO build is below:
Whilst we are keen to support this charity, I must emphasise that pupils need to bring their equipment as we expect them to remain fully engaged in their learning until the end of the school day. The footwear and clothes that pupils wear must also be suitable and appropriate for school.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during this very exciting and successful first half term at Penketh.
