    Dear Parents

    Prep School Sports Day

    The forecast for tomorrow is uncertain but changing by the hour, so fingers crossed for a rain free day.  Thanks in advance to Mr Randle for his giant spreadsheet with 200+ children each taking part in three different events, plus tugs-of-war.  Do please bring a picnic but there has been a health and safety request for no trackside barbecues due to the presence of large numbers of competing (and excited) children. Trackside gazebos are welcome for those who want to hide from the sun.  Amelia's Ices will be selling ice cream, cakes, hot and cold drinks.  If the weather takes a turn for the worse and the event looks in doubt we will keep you informed of our plans via ClarionCall.
