The highlight of the week for me was the wonderful Y3/4 production. This production has been filmed for the parents to see (Thank you, Miss Jackson!) and we're hoping to be able to have a live performance for parents in the Summer Term. To give the children experience of a live audience and as a thoroughly enjoyable treat for the rest of the school, we all gathered to watch the show on Thursday morning. It was wonderful! The acting, singing, dancing, props, costumes and lighting all combined to produce a polished and excellent performance. Well done to all involved and a big thank you to all the staff who supported the pupils and made this possible.
The Spring Term has not been without its Covid challenges, but there has been so much laughter and happiness too. It is such an enormous pleasure and privilege to be a member of such a school and to be part of the children's learning and play. Thank you to all staff who have worked tirelessly to make education fun and meaningful for the children, to all the children for being so beautifully behaved, hardworking and smiley, and to all the parents for their support and enthusiasm. I hope that everyone has a lovely, sunny break and stays healthy and safe. I am thoroughly looking forward to the Summer Term.
Bookings for lunches, breakfast club and the school bus are now live on School Gateway. After school club bookings will open in the new term - we have an exciting programme of new clubs for the children to enjoy. The new menu can be found here.
Governor Message to Parents
On behalf of the Three Hares governors, I would like to wish all pupils, their families and all staff a Happy Easter, and to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and support during what has been another tough term.
I would also like to welcome our new governors, Liz Davidson a parent governor who has a daughter at South Tawton, Lucy Dennis a staff governor from South Tawton and Wes Frewin a staff governor from Chagford. We also welcome back Ben Morris who had been on sabbatical so he could concentrate on the COVID vaccination programme. Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to Mark Neave, one of our foundation governors, who is moving to a new parish. It’s been another busy term for governors, and I thank you all for your hard work and support too.
There are still some vacancies for governors, so if you are interested or know someone in the community who may be please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would particularly welcome someone from the North Tawton community, as both Jo Ware and Lee Pascoe stepped down as governors last term.
We are hopeful that next term we will be able to come into school more so we can see all the wonderful things that are happening in our schools and to meet up with pupils, parents and staff to hear their thoughts about the schools. We also hope to join in with community events. So please keep an eye out for us. Next term we will have our details posted on the school websites so hopefully that will help in recognising us! We are also going to set up a governor blog so you can see what we have been doing for the schools.

Guess the number of Easter eggs in the Jar - the winning number was....167 and the winner was Scarlett from Y4. This activity raised £66! Thank you to all of the Y6 pupils who helped to raise this amount..
Ground force day - Saturday April 30th - 10am
Do you have a few hours you could dedicate towards helping clean up the school? There are windows to clean, paths to sweeping, jet-washing, strimming and lots, lots more! If you have brooms, buckets jet-washers etc please bring them along! The more people* and equipment we have, the quicker and easier it will be!
(*Please be aware that there will be no child care provision, so please either make arrangements for your children to be looked after at home, or be aware that you will have to supervise them whilst helping at the school!)
Easter Egg Hunt
The PTA provided Easter eggs for every child and the Easter bunnies were busy on Friday hiding them around school for the children to find.
