We would like to remind you that children are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to school every day for use in the classroom. Ideally the bottle should be taken home every day, to be washed out and filled again with fresh water. There is a water dispenser in the dining hall and children can have a drink of water with their meal. We have been allowing children to refill their bottles during the lunch break if necessary. The children should not need to leave the class during valuable teaching time to go for a drink of water.
