Health and Safety

On the cold and frosty mornings please can you stay off the black tiled area as it is very slippery.  Whilst it is great fun to slip and slide everywhere I do not want anyone to have to take a trip to A&E.  Please help me with this so that my stress levels are kept to a minimum!

From the PTA

The next PTA meeting will be held on Tuesday 24th January, 7.30pm in school.
The meeting will be devoted to “brainstorming” ideas for events to take the place of the Craft Fair. If you have any suggestions for fundraising or social events - things you know other schools do that you think we should try (or for that matter that you definitely don’t think we should try) - please come along to the meeting, or if you can’t make it, drop us a line on the PTA email, pta@hagbourne.oxon.sch.uk, or via the Facebook page.

Channel 4 LEGO Building Competition

We have been approached by TV production company Tuesday’s Child Television to ask whether anyone may be interested in taking part in a new programme it is producing for Channel 4 -  a competition to find Britain’s best LEGO builders.

The programme makers, who are working in close conjunction with the LEGO Group, are looking for creative people from all backgrounds and of all ages who either already have a passion for LEGO building or would be interested in turning their skills and talent to the art of LEGO building – basically anyone who can create amazing art out of LEGO bricks.

If you would like to learn more about the programme then please email; build@tuesdayschild.tv or visit http://www.channel4.com/programmes/take-part/articles/all/are-you-a-lego-obsessive/4990 for more details.
