Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 10th August

There is going to be a change in personnel at our school in the Autumn. Mrs Leila Naldrett, Head of Teaching  and Learning for the last couple of years, is standing down and her replacement will be Mrs Fern de Beer. Mrs de Beer has made several visits to the school during the last term and has enjoyed being welcomed by everyone involved with the school. Also Mrs Karenza Cross will be the new teaching assistant working in Swans class.The school has had  a good year, with successful fundraisng events organised by the PTFA, the pupils have enjoyed many outings, including an Adventure Week in Okehmpton  and an end of term walk from A.G to Bantham along the Tidal road. The school has also held sports days, swimming galas and a Beach Clean at Hope Cove, not bad! The year 2 pupils also had a sleep over in school  earlier in the term, what fun they must have had! Happy holidays to everyone involved with our school and well done for a successful year!
