This challenge will run from 2<sup>nd</sup> to 13<sup>th</sup> October, during which time we want to encourage as many students as possible to travel to school by bicycle!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Every day your child cycles in during the challenge they will be given a raffle ticket which will enter them into a prize draw at the end of each week. More cycle trips means more raffle tickets and an increased chance of winning a prize.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>So let&rsquo;s get cycling and see how any journeys to school we can make by bike!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Ursuline Academy Ilford Open Day</strong></p> <p>An open evening for the Ursuline Academy will take place on Wednesday September 8<sup>th</sup> from 6pm to 7.30pm at the school.</p> <p><strong>Front Pedestrian Gate </strong></p> <p>We are still having major problems with this gate. It looks as though the cabling underground has deteriorated. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter and are working to resolve this issue as soon as is possible.</p> <p><strong>School Photographer</strong></p> <p>On Wednesday 27<sup>th</sup> September the school photographer will be in the school. Individual and class photographs will be taken. If you wish your child to be in Winter Uniform for the individual photograph then please feel free &ndash; I have had parent queries.</p> <p><strong>Winter Uniform</strong></p> <p>We generally ask that the children change to Winter Uniform around the first week of October. If &nbsp;the weather is still warm then please use your discretion. However, we would expect that all children are in Winter Uniform by after half term.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>School Calendar</strong></p> <p>The school Calendar is being rapidly populated on our main school website &ndash; the tab for the calendar is on the top menu in the right hand corner. We also publish the Key School dates in the section of the website named Parents and then Key School Dates. Can I ask that parents refer to the School Calendar to check on visits and assemblies as the School Calendar is more frequently updated. The Key Dates section is primarily an early indicator for parents wishing to book time off or holidays in line with school year.</p> <p>&nbsp;As usual, have a great weekend.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Edward Cottle</p> http://ourladyoflourdesrcprimary.org/images/logo/logo-app.jpgThu, 21 Sep 2017 15:08:05 GMTVisitor's Gatehttp://ourladyoflourdesrcprimary.org/news/latest/2017-09-15-visitor-s-gatehttp://ourladyoflourdesrcprimary.org/news/latest/2017-09-15-visitor-s-gate<p>Dear Parents,</p> <p>Thank you for you continued patience.
