Commbus coming to Thurlaston

From Monday 2nd December 2019, Commbus will be operating to and from Thurlaston. Details have already been posted to residents and are on notice boards around the village. It will be good to have old and new passengers on board.

This is a very good service to local destinations such as Fosse Park and Blaby, to name but two. New timetables are available and will go to newly registered passengers in due course. Or phone during office hours 0116 2866116 - weekly Monday - Friday 10am to 12. noon.
You will be picked up at home and taken back afterwards to your door with shopping, helped by our trained escorts at a very reasonable cost. We look forward to picking you up!
Our highlight since last we wrote has been our oldest children travelling to Min-Y-Don Christian Adventure Centre in Wales. The children had a super time canoeing, rock climbing, abseiling, going on an adventure walk and other activities. As the week went on they grew more and more tired which meant they slept better!! Parents were delighted to get their muddy but happy children back on the Friday at the end of the week. Staff and pupils seem to have slept the whole of the weekend afterwards from the reports I have heard.

However, Class 4 are not the only children to have been out and about. Classes 1 and 2 went together to Conkers for the day. The muddy theme seemed to continue here. The photos on Facebook have received very many likes! The children not only enjoyed the activities themselves but also seeing some of the staff on the zipwire.
The last of the local cross country races has taken place and also the first of the football matches. The under 11s team played very well in the Danone Small Schools Cup qualifiers, drawing one match but losing the other so unfortunately have not progressed to the next round.

The children are bringing lots of things to get ready for the PTA bazaar that is taking place on 30th November. This is always a great start to the Christmas season.

We have shown some prospective parents around and are always happy to show parents around our school. If you are looking for a place for your child ring up to arrange an appointment to see us.
