Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

August 2015

As the holiday period nears an end, I know that there will be flurry of activity as we all prepare for a new term. The staff have been busy preparing for their new classes and the school is looking very clean and tidy! I am sure that many of our parents and children will have been sorting everything out too, in anticipation of the start of the new school year. For those children who are moving onto secondary school, they will also be busy preparing for the next stage in their education and we wish them all well in their new schools.

We would like to welcome everyone who will be returning to us or joining us for the first time to our school. As we begin Term 1 we look forward to seeing faces old and new and to hearing all about what everyone has been up to over the last few weeks. We have a number of new staff joining us and I am sure that they will settle in quickly to our school community. We know that there are some very excited children who cannot wait to join Billy Class and there will be some very proud parents coming through our school gates.

Enjoy the rest of the summer break and we will see you all on Thursday 3 September.
