HELLO FROM TWO BOATS SCHOOL
Now that we are well into the first term certain school events will soon be upon us. The Harvest Festival service at school will take place at 11.30 am on Friday 17th October and all are welcome to attend just let us know that you are coming and we will make arrangements for the seating. As is customary we will have a sharing of the Harvest Table after the service and will also take in donations of dried food that we will send on to St Helena for distribution.
Because we are holding our Sports Day this year on Sunday 19th October starting at 9 am the school will close on the afternoon of the Harvest Festival. However the day release classes in French and Information and Communication Technology will take place as normal.
The school is hoping to stage a Pantomime towards the end of the term (5th December) and the Carol Service this year will be held on the evening of Wednesday 10th December in St Mary's Church..
The evening class programme has now started and there are still vacancies in Business Studies, Yoga and Woodwork. A new class will start next week in Bridge for Beginners provided the minimum number of four people is reached. Please see the advert elsewhere in this edition for further details.
Traditionally a Youth Club has been run in Two Boats and the children at school would like to see the Youth Club running again. The teachers at school are currently trying to organise a Youth Club for Primary children and Secondary children.
I would like to thank all those people who have agreed to join a rota for supervision. However unless there are more people in the community who are willing to help to supervise the evenings the Youth Club will not run weekly. There is a need for at least three adults to supervise each time the Youth Club runs and ideally we would have twelve people for the Primary supervision and twelve for the Secondary supervision so that each helper was committed once every four weeks.
If you are willing to help in supervision please contact me as soon as possible - we hope to get the Youth Club started after the half term holiday.
