Many thanks, Jolly Pirates team.
We issued a seesaw log in with your information letter posted to you earlier in July. Please download the app and log in to keep up to date with information for September 2020 throughout the summer. This is especially important this year due to Covid-19 changes in guidance.
We will also be sharing transition items for the children before beginning Jolly Pirates.
Jolly Pirates team.
Further to our letter issued in June, we have posted out update information letters to you, which should be received over the next few days.
Uniform information has also been posted in another post.
We will be sending out a further update letter to you all next week.
This year we have a new uniform supplier AJ Print and Embroidery based in Lisburn.
To order you can contact them on 07591073281 or you can call into their shop
Unit 2 Lisburn Enterprise Centre, 6 Enterprise Crescent, Ballinderry Road, Lisburn, BT28 2BP.
Compulsory items of uniform which can be purchased from the supplier are:
Red sweatshirt jumper with Jolly Pirates logo.
Polo top with Jolly Pirates logo. For September 2020 we have now changed the colour of our polo tops to Royal Blue.
You can also purchase a school coat with logo if you would like to from the supplier but this is not compulsory.
We advise that you contact them directly to order uniform or with any inquiries. The uniform is not available to buy off the shelf and will need ordered. AJ print and embroidery are currently ordering in some sizing samples, which should be available from 10/7/2020 if you would like to visit their shop to look at sizing. However you can order uniform and state your required size when ordering by telephone.
We would advise ordering uniform within the next few weeks as this will allow time for your sizes to be ordered and completed before starting Jolly Pirates.
Other uniform items required which can be purchased from a shop of your choosing are;
Plain navy elasticated jogging bottoms.
Velcro shoes/trainers. No shoes with laces please.
Suitable warm coat of your choosing.
As you are aware we are receiving guidance during Covid-19 which we will discuss further with you in the letter next week. However it is asked that parents launder their child's uniform each evening to minimise the risk. Therefore this may be something parents want to keep in mind when purchasing uniform as you may want to purchase additional items.
Jolly Pirates team.
