Appeal for Outdoor Resources

We are appealing for the help of parents and friends of Our Lady of the Missions to help us develop our outdoor learning provision and playground facilities. The aim is to create a learning environment that will allow our children to develop a range of important physical, social and academic skills whilst having fun outdoors. It will also enhance the playground experience for our pupils by providing them with a larger, more attractive social space to meet and play.

Please see attached document for further details.

BEST WISHES to all in our school community and beyond who are observing the holy month of Ramadan, which started on 27 May.

We know it is a hugely important time for our Muslim families as they come together with family and friends in fasting, reflection, prayer and thinking of those less fortunate – extra charity is given in this month.

For those of us who are not familiar with Ramadan, Muslims believe that during Ramadan, the Qu’ran, the holy book of Islam, was revealed to mankind through the Prophet Muhammad. Many therefore devote extra time to the study of the Quran during this time. The end of Ramadan brings the festival Eid-ul-Fitr which will fall around 26 June.

Ramadan Mubarak to you all!

International day celebration – brainstorming meeting Thursday 20th April 7pm

 Our very first school International Day will take place in August. With the support of the school and our lottery grant, we are looking forward to an exciting event celebrating the food, art, music and dance of the many cultures and nationalities we have in school .

 We are having an initial brainstorming meeting on Thursday 20th April in school at 7pm and would love as many as possible to come along to share ideas and create a working group. Even if you can’t help much moving forward, please do come along and let us know what you think. The school will also have a programme of activities leading up to the day so the kids are fully involved.  

 If you can’t make the meeting but would like to be involved or have ideas, please email us on olm-psa@hotmail.com and olm-parentcouncil@hotmail.com (please copy both). If you are hoping to come along, it would also be helpful to let us know so we have an idea of numbers though feel free to turn up on the night as well.

Thank you!

Our Lady of the Missions PC and PSA
