St Oswald’s RC Primary School

April 2015





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.



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.



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.



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.



A group of Year 1 children took part in a Multi-Sport Festival at Gateshead Leisure Centre on 11th March. Have a look at our photos on the website.



For the third year running, school meals will remain at £2.00 per day or £10 per week.

Please remember that school meals should be paid for before they are taken. All monies should be brought into school in a clearly labelled envelope. Envelopes are available to buy from the school office at 50p per bundle.



A Team of children from Year 5 competed in the Newcastle Eagles Hoops 4 Health Basketball tournament. They were fantastic and they won!! Well done everyone. They will now compete in the Champion of Champions tournament on 24th April. Have a look at the photos on our website.
