Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome back to The Mount Stewart Schools for this last half-term of this academic year. We hope you and your families enjoyed the half-term break, and Eid Mubarak to all those who celebrated this week.
Please see a few reminders and highlights below:
For those Junior School pupils whose children have school meals, please ensure you pay for school meals in advance for the second half of the Summer Term (Summer 2: 06/05/2019-25/07/2019 = £86.40). Payments should be made via SchoolGateway. For more information please visit: www.tmss.org.uk/lunch-menus
Please advise the school if you are changing to either packed lunch or school meals. We kindly ask that you do not change more than once at the beginning of each half term. Please inform us (only if you do plan to change next term) via email: email@example.com Also, please be reminded we are a nut-free school.
