Are you able to help?

Chopin and Gershwin’s Greek workshop, on November 9th, is fast approaching and we need 8 helpers in order for the day to run.  I have only had one offer of help for the whole day, and two offers of half days.  If you are able to help with the day or would like to 'job share' with the half day offers, please let me know ASAP.

Please don't be put off by the request to come in costume.  We would rather a normally dressed set of helpers rather than no helpers at all! 

Thank you, Mrs Foley lfoley@furneuxp.herts.sch.uk

Chopin and Gershwin - Just a reminder for the Faith Tour next Tuesday!

All pupils will need to bring a headscarf to wear to cover their heads at some of the places of worship.  We have been asked that this is a scarf and not a baseball cap or handkerchief.  Girls will need to wear either dark tights or dark leggings under their skirt. As pupils eat their lunch at the gurdwara, it is requested that packed lunches are vegetarian (no meat, fish or eggs). 

Please also ensure that your child brings a waterproof coat.
