Lewisham Inter-School Football Festival

On Wednesday 30th October, 15 children across Years 5 and 6 took part in a Football Competition against Downderry Primary and St. Winifred’s Primary Schools. Organised in separate Boys’ and Girls’ teams, the children played their very best; tackling, defending, shooting and scoring. Their enthusiasm meant that the Boys won 1 – 0 to St. Winifred’s and managed to draw 4 – 4 against Downderry, with Melvin scoring 1 goal and David and Thomas scoring 2 goals each! Well done to Millie in Year 6 who scored for the girls. Giorgia and Isabella both did a great job rotating in goal.

Overall, the Girls’ team came third, with the Boys’ team taking 2nd Place. Congratulations to Alicja, Giorgia, Isabella, Kornelia, Layla, Millie, Suri and Zuzanna and to Curtis, David, Denzel, Melvin, Michael, Thomas and William. Also, a huge thank you to all the parents who turned up, cheering the children on!

We hope that the girls will use their developing skills and techniques to win in the girls’ tournament coming up in November.

Harvest Festival

On Thursday we celebrated our harvest festival in Church. It was a wonderful occasion full of joy and enthusiasm from our fabulous children. We were delighted to be joined by some children and staff from Watergate Special School. We look forward to enjoying plenty more celebrations with our friends from that wonderful and local school. Thank you to all those who contributed to the wonderful selection of dried foods displayed so wonderfully on the altar, these will now be distributed, by Father Sam, to those who need them.

 

Buddy Assembly

On Monday we enjoyed our first ever Buddy Assembly at St. Augustine’s. Our fabulous Year 6 children introduced their gorgeous Reception buddies to the School community. Thank you to all those parents who came along to support and enjoy the event. I know the buddies are looking forward to lots of exciting opportunities to be together during the year and develop those caring and nurturing relationships.
