Welcome to the new School Year
We would like to warmly welcome back all our children, parents and carers as we begin the 2012-13 academic year. A special welcome to all those children who have started at Balgowan for the first time and to those children who have transferred from other schools to join some of our older classes.
We would also like to welcome our new members of staff, Mr Slater (Year 6), Mr Jones (Year 4) and Miss Owen (Year 2) and welcome back Miss Bicknell who returns to Reception after travelling round the world. Mr Clark, our assistant caretaker, who joined the staff last term, started this term as a mid day supervisor and is really enjoying his different of role at lunchtimes.
Despite another mixed English summer, we hope you were able to have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday this year. For so many of us the London Olympics and Paralympics were highlights of the summer and they helped to bring people together. As we start the school year we have been thinking about the Olympics and Paralympics in school and are all going for gold this year! By this we mean everyone striving to their very best in all aspects of school life.
