Dear parents/carers,

I am desperately sad to be informing you of this. The Thurston centre boiler has broken down and can not be fixed. 

The children are therefore being sent home at 12 noon Tuesday 20/11/23. We expect them back at school 3:30pm tomorrow. Please can you ensure someone is at school to collect your child.

I know you will be saddened by this latest issue as we are. I can only apologise, but know that there is no decision that the school could have made to change this outcome. This trip has already been moved once and we do know that currently, Thurston has no additional weeks available across the rest of the year to reschedule again.

I have not been able to speak to the Thurston leaders yet to fully understand the issues faced, but all children are safe and have took part in some activities today. Mrs Stelling is informing the pupils of the news tonight after a walk.

I will personally try and find some form of alternative trip for later in the year and I will begin contacting other outdoor education providers immediately. Whilst I can not promise anything yet, I will try my very best.

We will provide more information as soon as we have it.

Yours sincerely 

Mr Bennett

Head Teacher
