St Oswald’s RC Primary School
We break up for the holidays on Thursday 2nd April and return to school on Monday 20th April. Nursery will return to school on Tuesday 21st April.
EASTER EGG COMPETITION AND BONNET PARADE
Once again we were overwhelmed by the fantastic imagination and design skills by our children. The bonnets and Easter eggs were amazing. There are pictures on the website of all the beautiful creations. www.stoswaldsrcprimary.org
The role of our staff is changing with regards to attendance monitoring from next term. It is possible that we may need to ask you more questions than normal when you advise us your child is absent. Please be patient with us we are following Gateshead Council protocol.
School will be closed on Thursday 7th May to allow for voting in the General Election.
DONATION STATION – ST OSWALD’S HOSPICE
A reminder – we have a Donation Station in the school entrance. Please bring any unwanted clothes, shoes, bags, DVD’s, CD’s etc. and place them in the donation station. St Oswald’s will come and collect these to use in their charity shops.
