The Scoop Week 7th March 2023

Hello Lyndhurst Family,

I wanted to say thank you to all of you who have already been in touch to offer help or support in improving our school. They say that it takes a village to raise a child, in my short time at Lyndhurst I’ve seen that this is something that the Lyndhurst family truly take to heart.  I’m really excited about our upcoming working weekend as another good example of what we can all achieve together.

Here are this week’s announcements:

Fundraising Cake Sale Friday 10th March:
We will be raising money for the earthquakes in Turkiye & Syria.  We would welcome any donations of cakes (please bring them to the school office by 09:30 on Friday 10th with a label listing the ingredients). The sale will be cash only.

Working Weekend:
A reminder that this weekend will be our first working weekend. If you are able to help with any type of gardening or DIY project, please come along on Saturday or Sunday from 10am. Bring a travel cup and any tools you may have.
