Friday Saturday Flier 25th April
May Festival
You are warmly invited to our

May Festival

In Queen’s Wood, Highgate
Friday 1 May 2015, at 9:45
Soon after Easter is the time for our yearly gathering in Queen’s Wood, with sharing of food, music and dancing around the May pole. This day traditionally marked the beginning of the pastoral summer season, when cattle were let out to the summer pasture.

Please bring food, drink and blankets for the picnic. Children will be taking home their raffia crowns on the Thursday before, to be decorated for the Festival.

If your child already has a raffia crown, please bring it in after Easter.

Rebekah Allan is leading the music, please make yourself known to her and bring instruments if you wish to join in. We are searching for guitarists in particular.

The KG children are the responsibility of their parents throughout the Festival. The school children will be joining their teachers at 9:45, but will be under their parent’s supervision immediately after the dancing. If you are unable to be present, please arrange for another parent to look after your child, regardless of age. This is an extraordinary school day so please report any absence as usual. There is no Lunch club on this Festival day.

Please help us keep this event joyful and safe by together taking care of all children. Stick fighting will not be allowed.

We wish for all to experience the May Festival first hand, therefore taking photographs and recording will not be permitted. On this day there will be a designated school photographer.
 We are looking forward to seeing you at the May Festival.
How to find us: Follow trail from Queen’s Wood Café, 42 Muswell Hill Rd, N10 3JP.
Nearest tube station Highgate, is within 5-10 min. distance.

Our gardening work is stepping up a-pace and we are lacking a few tools etc. Before we hit our budget can we ask if anyone has any usable but unwanted rakes, spades, hoes or forks they are willing to donate? please bring to school and leave in garden store. Any seeds or plants are always appreciated as well.

Community Notices
We have a spare room to rent in our spacious family home in Highbury New Park, within walking distance of St. Paul’s. Ideally it would suit perhaps an older person, who appreciates peace and quiet and who doesn’t mind watering plants or doing the odd bit of gardening as we are away a lot and they would generally have the place to themselves. Would love to have someone in connection with the school so open to any enquiries.

Available from mid-May. Rent £600 per month (bills/internet/council tax inclusive). Room to have new carpet, blinds and bed etc

Please contact Trini (former parent at St. Pauls) or 07772 405 377
Cottage in Mallorca
Cottage in Mallorca (Campanet, north-east of Inca) surrounded by orchards, with swimming pool, looking out towards the mountains. It is off the tourist track but 5 mins from the village and the main road to Palma airport, mountains and beaches (15 to 20 mins in many directions eg: Alcudia, Pollensa) and equally ideal for a family holiday or a personal retreat.

There is also some separate accommodation in the grounds, so that two families could share, while living independently - a total of 6 single beds (3 twin rooms) and one double room and spare mattresses and a cot.
