Following on from the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening regarding the continuation of current COVID restrictions until Monday 19 July, we have thoroughly reviewed all the events and activities we have in our calendar from Monday 21 June until the end of term.
With coronavirus cases linked to the new Delta variant significantly on the rise, we are conscious of the need to follow all government advice and guidance and for us to continue to maintain the safest possible environment for all our school community. One of the real straightjackets with current restriction levels revolves around social distancing, particularly with bringing large numbers of visitors onto the site.
Many of our planned events were realistically only going to be possible with restrictions lifted. We have therefore taken the sad decision that we need to cancel the OPs Summer Supper Reunion on Friday 25 June as we would simply not be able to run the event in the sociable way we would like to.
We realise that this will come as a huge disappointment and all we can do is to apologise.
The Summer Fête and Motoring Festival on Sunday 27 June, have also sadly been cancelled. The Summer Art, Photography and Design Show on Thursday 24 and Sunday 27 June will go ahead, with limited numbers and pre-bookable sessions, the link will be available on Princethorpe Connect from Tuesday 22 June.
We do hope however that you may be interested in attending our OPs vs College Sports Day on Saturday 4 September 2021, by when we hope all restrictions will be well and truly lifted. In addition to the programme of sporting fixtures and the complimentary BBQ and Ice Cream Van, we will be looking to add to this day with optional tours of the school and a buffet meal after the final match. If this is something you would be interested in attending, please do let me know.
Once again, many apologies and we hope to see you at Princethorpe later in the year.
With best wishes for a good summer.
