‘I GO TO SCHOOL EVERYDAY’ COMPETITION                          
Early to bed, early to rise, every day and on time, could win you a prize!  
We held a special assembly this morning to pick our 100% Summer Term prize winner. The winner received a £20.00 Toys R Us Voucher.  Well done to Yeamin Noor from Star Base. We also had a prize draw for the 100% winner of the whole school year.  The prize this year was a £40.00 Toys R Us Voucher. Well done to Monique Issac from Red Base. All the children who have 100% attendance for the whole school year have received a special 100% badge to celebrate this excellent achievement.  All prizes were presented to the children along with their certificates at this special assembly. 
This competition is open to all Furze children and will continue during the next school year. As you know regular attendance at school is very important – every day counts – attending school every day will help our pupils to have the best possible start in life.

GOODBYE YEAR 2
