Could all girls taking part in the upcoming Biathlon please attend running club on Friday morning at 8am. The girls will be given the opportunity to practice the transition of putting on their trainers / running vests independently and quickly, as this can become an important part of the race.

Au Pair Looking for Work
A Spanish student is looking for a family to be an au-pair for the next school year during her gap year before University. She is closely related to one of our school families and is the second of a family of 5 children, so knows her way well with children; she is finishing her last year in school at the moment. If you are interested or someone you know could be interested, could you please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
