Dear parents and friends of Iona,

A new year has started, and it brings new exciting Forest School activities with it!

This half term, one long session for each group from 10.30 to 14.30:

– Sunday 22nd January, for 5-7 year olds.

– Saturday 4th February, for 8-11 year olds.

And with the longer (and hopefully warmer) days after the half term holidays, we will start again the weekly sessions:

– Tuesdays for 5-7 year olds.

– Thursdays for 8-11 year olds.

Check the posters (below) for more information and feel free to share them with anyone interested, these sessions are open to children from outside the Iona school too.

See you soon,

Raquel and Lauren

19. December 2016 · Comments Off on Christmas Lunch delight at Iona school! · Categories: Independent schools Nottingham, Steiner education

On Friday many Iona School children and staff tucked into a delicious freshly cooked Christmas lunch. On the menu this year was Maple Glazed Christmas Roast (dairy and nut free veggie loaf) served with gravy, mash and veg followed by Chocolate Orange sticky pudding with Snow custard. Everyone enjoyed it and there were lots of requests for seconds!

A huge thank you to our school cooks, Mic and Becky, for doing such a wonderful job and to the parents that came to lay out tables and chairs and decorate the hall to make it a special occasion for the children!

Dear parents and friends,

Thank you so much for your generous donations to the Basket Brigade.  We raised over £80 from the Advent Calendars :). Iona School is an essential part of this 100% volunteer run charity and we have over 100 nominated families this year who we are looking forward to surprising with some Festive Magic!!

The packing day is this Saturday 17th, 10am to 4pm in Iona’s School Hall and it’s a wonderful day of good cheer and Festive Giving.  You and your children are welcome – let us know if you can make it – even an hour helps (especially at the end of the day!) Just email rough times to;  Vanya@indigobrave.com

And lastly – if you feel moved to give a gift to someone this Festive Season in need of some love from their community…. Please just drop in to Reception, or the older children are collecting in their classrooms.

We need a couple more Vegan and gluten free treats and any food treats as well as smellies for hard working mums and dads!!

Much love for a wonderful Festive time!

The Basket Brigade

On Monday evening it was our Advent Festival, marking the time when we begin to look forward to the coming of the Christmas Light.

In the dark stillness of the evening, children lit a candle to the sound of gentle singing and music and placed it in a spiral. Parents commented on what a moving festival it was.

Iona School’s Advent Fayre was a resounding success on Saturday! Everyone commented on what a special day it was and a lot of fun was had by all!

It’s amazing what the magical combination of parent power and staff commitment can achieve and this was reflected in the feel-good atmosphere of the day and the fantastic total raised for the school which was £ £6,009.27!

Thank you-thank you-thank you to everyone involved-you have been amazing and to everyone for coming along and supporting the event. We look forward to doing it all again next year:)
