BALLOON FOUND IN BELGIUM!
On Saturday 29th June we held our Twentieth Anniversary Picnic at school. It was a beautiful sunny day and lots of parents and children came to school to enjoy a leisurely picnic on the field. The culmination of the afternoon was a special balloon release. Children, adults and friends had bought nearly three hundred tags and each one was attached to a balloon filled with helium. The balloons were held in a special net until it was time to release them. At 1.50 pm the net was opened and the balloons escaped and …….. bumped along the ground until they got to the hedge between the school field and the golf course. I breathed a sigh of relief when they shot up and over the hedge and up into the sky. It was all over in a few seconds.
There was only one thing to do then and that was wait. As it turned out, the wait wasn’t too long and by Monday morning the calls were coming in from people who had found a balloon tag. The first was from Melton Mowbray but then we had two calls from Ipswich. Mightily impressive until we got an e-mail from a family in Belgium. Then another two calls from Belgium as well. Three of our balloons had travelled across the English Channel and made it to mainland Europe! Who would have believed it. There has been one further call from even further afield. All will be revealed to the children on Friday!

It was lovely to see so many people at out Open Evening this week. The school looked great with children’s work adorning the walls and out on the tables. Of course the centre piece was the Twentieth Anniversary Outwoods Edge Tapestry made up of twenty panels, one from each class and others from staff and governors. Every child at the school this year, our twentieth year, sewed their initials on the tapestry. I hope you had time to see it on Thursday. If not it will be displayed in school when we have found a permanent place for it. - Mr Maksymiw
