R Time

R Time, What is it all about?

New for this year is R Time. The children share a fun R Time activity once a week and are then encouraged to demonstrate what they have learnt throughout the week. It can be as simple as looking at someone when they are talking to you or remembering to say thank you.


We have a new set of Diamond Rules which all the children, no matter how young, aspire to meet.


Diamond Rules


Show good manners at all times.

Follow instructions with thought and care.

Care for everyone and everything.


Children who follow the Diamond Rules then have a chance of being awarded one of our brand new R Time Stickers. Good look everyone!
