HEADLINES – Wed 14 November 2012




This week at my Assemblies I am launching, on behalf of the Friends of Bushey Meads, the Christmas Prize Draw 2012.  Your child/ren might already have brought home an envelope containing a book of 10 tickets at £1 per ticket.



The prizes this year are as follows:

 1st Prize:                       iPhone5

2nd Prize:                      Weekend night’s stay for two at Marriott Hotel, Park Lane

3rd Prize:                       Christmas Hamper

4th Prize:                       iPod Shuffle 2GB

The students were consulted regarding the 1st Prize and it was clear that the latest iPhone was the favourite across all year groups.  I do hope you will support this fund-raising initiative, the profits from which will enable us to purchase items for the students which would not otherwise be affordable or justifiable from our school budget.



We are also repeating the Bushey Meads Plum Pudding which is proving an increasing success year on year and is remaining at the very competitive price of just £5.  An order form is enclosed in the envelope your child will bring home with their draw tickets with instructions on how to order.



Every year I offer parents/carers the opportunity of meeting with me to discuss general topics which apply to the whole school community or relevant year group, eg bus service, school uniform etc.  This enables me to obtain a balanced view on these issues and gives you the opportunity to have your say.  This term I am offering 10 minute appointments on Tuesday 27 November, 3:30pm – 6:00pm.  To book an appointment please phone Reception on 020 8950 3000 and ask to speak with my PA, Mrs Armitage.  Please note you will be asked the nature of your appointment so that I have an agenda for each meeting.  The purpose of these sessions is not to discuss individual/specific issues relating to your child/ren.  I hope to see a number of you at these sessions.
