This is a crucial evening for the school and we are always grateful for support from so many students and parents/carers. The school closes at 12.30 on this day and dedicated school buses collect students at 12.30. Other students will need to make their way home as you direct. 

Students will be asked by teachers next week if they can help out on the evening and this may impact on parents for supporting with transport arrangements - thank you in advance for this! We are hoping all Year 8 students will assume guiding roles and students from other year groups will volunteer to help out with subject areas. 

We are also looking for parent/carer support for our Open Evening – please contact the school office if you are able to help. This will involve talking to prospective students and parent/carers at various strategic points around the school, promoting Friends (PTA) Activities, answering questions from a Parent/Carer point of view, and issuing refreshments to student guides in the small canteen. Year 7 parent/carers – we know many are new but you too would be very welcome as our most recent ambassadors for Townsend. 
Many thanks in anticipation 
Ian Graham - Open Evening Coordinator
