The Week Ahead – 17th December

congratulations

Well done to our fantastic Choir who were runners up in the School Choir Competition! You all worked extremely hard and have been a credit to Udston. Thank you to everyone who voted and supported them throughout the competition.

Our P3-7 Show ‘Only Another Udston Christmas’ was a huge success. We’re sure no other school had a special appearance from Honey G!

Arrangements for P3-7 Christmas Show and Class Parties

 

christmas cardsP3-7 Christmas Show Arrangements

To keep things simple on Thursday and Friday, P3-7 pupils should wear their Christmas show outfits throughout the day. We have asked that children wear something “Christmassy”.

Could all pupils please be dropped off at the school for Thursday night’s performance no earlier than 6.30pm. In the past, children have had difficulty in accessing the front door, therefore we will have signs for members of the audience to wait in line. By having this system, the children should be able to walk in easily – likewise, staff members too. Also, you may wish to give your child a snack & juice (not fizzy) to have in class. No telephones please or iPads to be given to the children.

The show will begin at 7.00pm and doors will be open from 6.45pm. The show is expected to finish at 8.30pm. If you are not attending the show, please collect your child from the front door. Those who are at the performances can collect pupils from their classrooms at the end of the show. No child will be allowed to walk home after the performances. Please bring your tickets with you on the night – fire regulations dictate we cannot admit entry to anyone without a ticket.

xmas jumper day

On Friday P1&2 pupils are welcome to wear a Christmas jumper (no charge) along with their school uniform.

christmas party

On the day of your child’s party they can either bring their party clothes in a bag, to change into at lunchtime or have a home lunch. If they are going home for lunch they can be collected at 12pm that day, and should return by 12.55pm.

We hope everyone who has been to see ‘A Night at the Palace’ so far has enjoyed it! The children are all doing their families and the school proud!

Last night, the show finished just before 8.45pm so we would ask that all children are collected from the school at this time.

Many thanks and we are looking forward to seeing more of you at our final performance tonight!
