Your child’s teacher will give you a time that the call will be made on the Monday/Tuesday. If that does not suit they will call you at a later time on the Wednesday evening. A face to face meeting will only be available to parents that are required to sign educational documents.
Note from the Bike General! – Please check your child’s brakes on a regular basis. Of all the bikes I checked at the school at least 1 in 5 had very poor or non-existing brakes! It is non critical that the gears work but the brakes need to be operational. Contact Ciaran on 07729953202. https://www.thebikegeneral.com/
School Dinners – A new menu is available online, please check our News section. This starts from Monday 12th October.
Eglinton Medical Practice – www.eglintonmedicalpractice.co.uk We had a very successful flu vaccine clinic last weekend in Foyle College on Limavady Road. Thank you to all who attended.
We will run a final flu vaccine clinic this Sunday 11th October in Foyle College from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon. This clinic is for all pre-school children (that is children aged 2-4 years and not yet in primary school). However, everyone who is eligible for the flu vaccine and has not yet had it, is welcome to attend this clinic also.
The flu vaccine for children is given as a simple painless nasal spray into each nostril. A very small number of children may need the vaccine as injection instead.
Children are more likely to suffer from flu than adults. Giving flu vaccine to children helps stop them catching and spreading the infection, so it protects them and also the people around them.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND IF you have any COVID-19 symptoms such as high temperature, a new continuous cough, or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, or if you have been told to isolate in the previous 14 days.
Music Service – Brass lessons will resume Monday children to bring own instruments. Violin/Viola lessons will resume Wednesday. Please bring instruments to school.
