Sports Relief @Innerwick Primary

Sport Relief – Friday 23rd March 

This Friday Innerwick Primary School will be raising awareness and money for Sport Relief. We will be taking part in the Sport Relief Mile by either walking, jogging or running around the school grounds. Children, parents and staff  are welcome to dress up in their sports kit for the day – football and rugby strips will be allowed. Children should try and bring their sponser forms in to school on Friday.

It would be great to have a good turnout of parents to cheer along the participants.

Nursery Waiting List for April 2012

Nursery Waiting List for April 2012

Following a very well attended meeting on Wednesday 7th March between the Parent Council and the parents of those children who will not be able to take up their places at Innerwick Nursery in April 2012 because the nursery’s morning sessions are full, the Parent Council has written to Mr Don Ledingham, Executive Director of Education and Children’s Services to express its concern and to seek a solution to this problem. The meeting was also attended by a number of parents whose children are due to begin nursery later in 2012. See letter below.
