“Can I have a ride-on mower, please Santa?”

Busy with stalls and activities

Thanks to all the stall holders and to those who donated prizes for the raffle and who ran activities to entertain the children. And off course, to Santa for turning up and dishing out presents!

 

And a reminder that Father Christmas will be revisiting the dale on 4 December at 4.40pm, parking up by the school gates, so come along and give him a warm Rosedale welcome.

Farewell to Nicola – 19 July 2017

In a tearful but happy occasion, the children, parents and friends of Rosedale Community Primary School said farewell to their much loved head teacher, Nicola Johnson. Nicola first came to Rosedale School in January 1991, taking over as head teacher from Diane Hughes. Then the school had 29 pupils. Now it has 22 in total with the number rising again and the fact that the school has survived at all is very largely down to the efforts of Nicola, as the chairman of the governors, Anthony Davies observed in his address.

Presenting Nicola with a specially baked ‘portrait’ cake! The other one was  also specially baked by Darren and James at Graze on the Green.

And finally, thanks to all those many who put up bunting, designed wonderful artifacts to decorate the approaches to and the village itself and generally helped make 1 May a special day for all in the dale.
