Today we said goodbye to Mrs Tingle, Mrs Smith, Mrs Howard and Mrs Gallifant. This week we have held assemblies to thank them for their hard work and to celebrate their time at Prettygate Infant School. They have all asked to thank parents for their kind donations towards the leaving gifts. Mrs Tingle was presented with an antique diamond ring, Mrs Smith was given some vouchers to spend in Next, Mrs Howard had some Center Parcs vouchers and Mrs Gallifant was given National Trust Membership. We wish Mrs Tingle a very happy and restful retirement and the others good luck with their new adventures.
Schools in Bloom
On Tuesday we were invited to the awards ceremony for Schools in Bloom. Mrs Jowers and Mrs Waller took children from our Gardening Club. We received a highly commended certificate and a growing in Science award. We were presented with a basket of gardening goodies.
When we return to school in September we will be eating meals from Menu 1 on 5th and 6th September. W/c 9th September we will be eating meals from Menu 2.
Collection from School – Autumn Term
Just to remind you that children in Year 1 and Year 2 should be collected at the end of the school day from the classroom doors. When you come up the drive please go around the school building to the right and collect your child from their class room (Please do not go across the field). Miss Burgess' class will come out of the doors at the top of the drive (under the porch) and Mrs LeBoutillier and Miss Isgrove's class will leave from the doors at the back of the hall.

Today has been an emotional one for me as I say goodbye to Prettygate schools after thirty wonderful years. However, as I said to the children in our last assemblies,what ties us together is that wherever we go in the future we will carry a small piece of Prettygate in our hearts.
It is the people who make Prettygate a very special place. Your children do you and the school proud, and we are extremely grateful for the unstinting support that you yourselves give the school community.
I have had a fantastic 'send off ' and whenever I wear the ring that I chose as my retirement gift, I will remember the many happy times spent here.
I wish you all the best for the future and sign off for the last time as:
