Rocking around the Christmas tree

Today, Christmas really started at St Laurence's when we put up our class Christmas trees. We had the added surprise this year of new ornaments for the trees - baubles featuring photo of each child. Everyove found their own personalised ornament and hung it on the tree. It was such fun.... Fa la la la la la la la la...............

St Laurence's goes 'paperless'.........

In an effort to cut down on the amount of paper and ink used, we have introduced some new initiatives here at the school. Firstly, with the much appreciated agreement of parents, we will from now on be issuing permission slips and school information via email. We appreciate it will take effort on parents' part to check for emails and reply but we are delighted with your co-operation. 

In addition, we have set up a new 'Ink-free' News Section on our website. Here you will be able to find all the up to date news on current and future happenings at the school. Do take the time to check in from time to time!! Ink-Free News
