Downsview goes to the pantomime!

You can feel the excitement in school this morning....

Today, the whole school are heading to The Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks to enjoy the seasonal pantomime! This year, the performance is Sleeping Beauty...and I'm sure the children will be cheering and boo-ing appropriately at the different characters that appear on stage. It should be great fun and a very memorable experience.

I would like to thank the Friends of Downsview (PTA) for their generous donation of £1000 towards the cost of the trip. Without this, transport costs and theatre ticket cost would have just been too expensive. As a result of their donation, the cost of the trip has been subsidised greatly giving us great value for money.

The event has needed a great deal of planning and organisation and I am very grateful to Miss Page and Mrs Burke for spearheading this work. They have done a fantastic job in preparation for the pantomime - thank you both!

So, it's nearly time to depart....oh no it isn't! (Sorry - couldn't resist!) Mr Edwards

PS - A reminder to all parents driving cars today: please do not park on the school driveway. With two coaches arriving and departing throughout the day, we need the driveway to be clear from any obstacles. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Parents of children attending the afternoon performance are to wait in the playground (approx. 4:30p.m) for the returning coaches. Staff will be on hand to support a safe and smooth handover of children! Thank you.
