Dear Parent / Carer,
What a disrupted term we’ve had and it’s hard to believe that we’re only a couple of weeks from the Easter Holidays!! Some Annual Reviews were effected by the weather but will be rescheduled in the near future.
Inspite of the snow disruption our pupils have been working hard both in and out of the classroom. Everyone enjoyed the Sponsored Bounce which raised an amazing £1054.50 for school funds, thank you so much for your generous support. As part of our Easter Fundraising we joined with our Cathedral Friends in collecting for a local food bank, again thanks to you all for the generous food donations sent in.
Congratulations to Eve O’Neill (Rm.7) and Jose Luis Maza (Rm.10) who performed on stage at this year’s Ups & Downs Show! Well done also to Maddison Fallon (Rm.4) who donated some hair after a recent cut, to the Little Princess Trust children’s charity.
Several of our pupils are working with “Beats of Brazil” and some will perform next week in the Royal Concert Hall, a larger group hope to perform in the Civic Centre later in May.
Using some of our Pupil Equity Fund, the teaching staff and some pupil groups will be working this week with Tree of Knowledge and hope that you will join us for an hour or so on Thursday Night (15th March). Tree of Knowledge provide some excellent support and bring with them a wealth of experience which is shared in a fun and enjoyable way.
Work is underway on the latest playground improvements which include some new equipment for the Infant Playground, we hope to have this finished and ready for testing by Infant Classes prior to the holidays.
Events prior to the Easter Break include: Tree of Knowledge (Parents) 15th March, Tree of Knowledge (Pupils) 16th March, Crazy Hair Day (16th March) please bring £1 for SCIAF, Lots of Socks (Downs Syndrome Awareness) 21st March, Non Uniform Day (23rd March) please bring £1 for SCIAF, Easter Assembly (26th March) and also our Easter Egg Hunts which will take place during the last week of term. The Pupil Council will also be selling raffle tickets for Easter Eggs over the next two weeks, with all proceeds going to SCIAF.
Please continue to look out for letters and information texts over the coming weeks. The school will close at 2.30pm on Thursday 29th March and re-open at 8.55 am on Monday 16th April. We hope that all children and families enjoy the break and return ready to embark on another busy Summer Term.
Please feel free to contact me if you have anything at all which you wish to discuss and sincere thanks for your continued support.
Marie Clare Webster (Head Teacher)
