Cunningham Hill Infant School Newsletter – June 2019


katherine cooperAt the beginning of June Garance, Joshua, Mehdi, Ella, Tristian, Maryam, Joshua and Sasha represented the school and took part in an athletics competition against other infant schools in St Albans. They were brilliant and came back to school proudly wearing their medals. Sports day was enjoyed by all. The weather was glorious and all the children had such fun. Thank you to CHISS PTA for the ice pops at the end. Thank you to the many parents who have already made their voluntary class contributions. It is very much appreciated. Please continue to make your one single contribution of £5 each term (£15 for the year) to help cover expected costs for curriculum activities that require additional expense. Contributions can be paid via online PMX accounts. Thank you to everyone who filled in the parent questionnaire. Feedback will be given shortly.
