Dear Britannica Parents,

Welcome back, and welcome to 2019. We hope it is a great year for each and every one of you.

Also, we would like to warmly welcome Ms. Archer and Mrs Kmetty, the new Y5 Thames and Teme teachers, respectively, and Mr. Nigel Muter, the new Art and History teacher. We wish them the best with their new classes, and look forward to working with them during the remainder of the school year.

We held our first Cookie Friday of the new year today. A Big Thank You goes out to Y7b and Y5 Teme, and other class parents that hosted today's event. Your efforts and support are greatly appreciated.

Please mark your calendars for the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) Coffee Morning to be held on Wednesday, 16 Jan, 0845, in the auditorium. Mr. McGarry and his team will provide more details on the building expansion project, and discuss the way ahead for 2019. Please join us for some kava and lively discussions.

The following week we will hold our PSA Coffee Morning. It will be held on Thursday, 24 Jan, after drop off in the cafeteria. Again, please join us for some kava and school discussions.

Please check the lost and found boxes for any lost items. The boxes are overflowing with an assortment of items/clothing, etc.

Speaking of lost and found, Marta Korneluk's son lost his zip polar jumper shortly before Christmas break. All searches have turned up negative. It would be greatly appreciated if you would check at home to see if it was accidentally taken there.

Have a great January and 2019. Until next week......

Respectfully, Ray Rabatin, Barbara Belyo, Izabella Iszlai, Szilvia Nemeth, Maria Molina Sierra, Anita Ajan
