Harvest Festival: Thank you to all parents for the wonderful donations that were sent into school. We celebrated our Harvest Festival at St. Augustine’s Church. It was a lovely and reflective service giving us all time to thank God for all the food that we take for granted. Children read from the Bible, performed poems and the School Councillors read the CAFOD Harvest prayer. The ‘own clothes’ day raised over £189 for the CAFOD and Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). A very big ‘thank you’ for all your generosity. The food will be distributed by the Church to those in need including the Manna Centre.
Internet Safety –There has been a great deal in the news about children and the Internet. As parents you need to ask ,“What is my child doing online?” Talk to your child about what they’re up to online. Be a part of their online life; involve the whole family and show an interest. Find out what sites they visit and what they love about them, if they know you understand they are more likely to come to you if they have any problems. Keep up-to-date with your child’s development online. Children grow up fast and they will be growing in confidence and learning new skills daily. It’s important that as your child learns more, so do you. Visit the website:
The first few weeks have been very settled with children meeting their new class teachers and other staff. The children arrived back eager to learn, looking smart and full of enthusiasm. We especially welcome those pupils and parents new to our school. We hope you will enjoy your time with us and find us a happy and supportive learning community. The school has had a “makeover” during the summer: all the Junior classrooms have been redecorated and Year 3 will be getting new tables and all classes have updated furniture. The school looks lovely and vibrant.
