Pupils in Primary 4 and 5 put on a beautful Daffodil Tea this afternoon! Well done to all the pupils for taking part. Click here to view the programme.
School closes at 2.30pm on Friday 1st April for the 2 week Spring break.
The sculptures represent us as unique individuals and also together as one. Each sculpture has two eyes which signify our shared vision as a school. The large eyes represent having our eyes open to the world, ready to learn new things and ready to help others in need.
When you look at the art work, notice that each sculpture is based on the same design but each one is unique.
At St. Thomas’ we encourage all pupils to take pride in their achievements. This artwork is a shared success that can be shared amongst pupils, staff and the whole school community.
We are pleased to tell you that we’re taking part in Sainsbury’s Active Kids 2016. This means that until the 3rd May, you can collect vouchers at Sainsbury’s and donate them to us. We can then exchange the vouchers for exciting new sports and cooking equipment and experiences for our kids.
Simply bring your vouchers into school and either drop them in our collection box which you’ll find at the office reception window or give them directly to Miss Watson or Mrs Holmes.
Active Kids is a great way for our community to join together to help our kids eat well, move well and live well. So please ask your neighbours, friends and family to help collect vouchers too.
