Parent & Friends Association update

I am pleased to announce the new chair holders of the Coldingham Parents & Friends Association. The continuing chairperson is Alison Ramcharran (Taisho and Alexander’s mum), the new secretary is Katie Kendrick (Lulu and Hattie’s mum) and the new treasurer is Mhairi Drummond (Coralie and Scarlett’s mum). Thank you to the retiring secretary, Genevieve Young (Poppy’s mum), and treasurer, Helen Gibson (Carrie and Rory’s mum), for your hard work last year.

PE teacher update

As you all know, Mrs Henry retired at the end of last term. For reasons out-with my control, a replacement PE teacher is yet to be appointed. In the interim, the children will continue to enjoy their weekly PE with the help of supply teachers. All primary teachers are trained to deliver primary PE so I am confident that the pupils will continue to progress in their physical education.

Starting next week, we will be welcome Vivien Bauer into school. Vivien is from Germany and is training to be a teacher. As part of her training, she is working in a number of local schools, teaching German to both classes.
