3 September 2021: P&C

Hello, it’s been a while between posts but with less than four weeks of term 3 and a couple of P&C events on the horizon, I thought it would be a good idea to say hi.

This morning, Mike Slattery, who is the head of the DoRKs, hosted a Father’s Day Café in the Quad with coffees, treats and a few games which the Dads and kids to played before school.  It was lovely to see so many smiling faces and thank you for your patience if you ordered a hot drink during the rush.

While talking about DoRK run events, Mike and his crew are underway in getting ready for the annual Billy Carts event on Sunday the 17th October.

If you haven’t been to this event before, please come along, it is a joyous day for all.  If you don’t have a billy cart,  don’t let that put you off joining in the fun, one of the best things about Mike is how willing he is to make sure everyone is included, just let him know so he can see what can be done.

This year the P&C have been trying to do the meetings a bit differently by meeting in the Library on Tuesday mornings, our hope is that more people feel welcome to join us, so far it has been successful, we appreciate everyone who has joined us.  We realise not everyone can make mornings so next week we will be having the meeting in the Library from 7pm.

As you may know the P&C have been selling Bricks on Tidy HQ, they are to commemorate RPS Centenary.  The bricks will be laid in the fourth term, therefore we will conclude sales by the end of this term so if you would like to be a part of the school in this special way, be like me (Last Minute Larry) and jump online soon to order your brick before it’s too late.

I’m sure I speak for most when I say the news last week that Lisa Dentith is leaving us at the end of the term took was a big surprise, it is hard to imagine Richmond Primary without her at the helm.  It is not easy to be a leader, it’s almost impossible to make everyone happy all the time but Lisa has managed to find a way to provide our children with an environment where they not only learn but also create beautiful memories to last a lifetime.  For that I would like to thank her for all she has given, how much she has cared and congratulate her on being brave in taking this new adventure on.  We will miss you Lisa.

Warmest regards, Aoife Lannon

President of the P&C
