Saturday 23rd November – School Fair

Although we are not governed by the statutory holidays for schools, we follow the ESF schools calendar. During every year we have 5 teacher training days built into the calendar. This is in addition to the contact days with children. These CPD days are added onto our calendar not removed from the contact days with children.
Abacus Calendar for 2019-2020 is available here.
We hope you all had a restful break and enjoyed the holiday. Welcome to our new families this term. It looks like this will be a busy half term. We have lots planned for our children in the lead up to the Christmas break, including our fair and Christmas Concerts.
Abacus Fair and Meeting
Every year we have a fair day at Abacus, the main purpose of this event is for all of our families to socialise and have fun. It is also a fundraiser for extra bits and pieces we would like to buy to enhance the provision at Abacus.
The date for this years fair is Saturday 23rd November. As you can imagine this event takes quite a lot of organisation. We would like to ask for some parent volunteers to come and help us organise the event.
Sadly we didn’t have any interest in helping with the fair. We are still looking for volunteers to help organise this event. If you can help with the organisation please let Frances know in the office, otherwise we may have to postpone this event for this year.
