Mayor of Lewisham visits St. Augustine’s

On Friday 28th February, we had a special visitor to our school. Damien Egan, the Mayor of Lewisham came to talk to the children in our assembly. The children were enthused to find out about the role of Mayor. They got chance to see the mayoral chains close up and ask very important and intelligent questions. He was delighted to meet the children and is looking forward to meeting them again in the future.

Pancake Race

Tuesday was our annual gathering for the Pancake Race. All children who wished to took part in a race against their peers. We then had a parent race and a staff race. It was great fun and it was delightful to mark this occasion with joy and laughter.

School Council visits Council Chambers

On Friday 31st January, our school council went to visit the ‘Council Chambers’ along with two other Lewisham schools. The children were given a pack full of information and quizzes, which they had to investigate at the ‘Civic Suite’. The children met Cllr. Jacq who told the children a lot about the history, Lewisham Council’s logo and meaning behind the Mayors Council Chambers, the ‘Chains and Badge of Office’ also the three ‘Maces’ that represent the former and current of the borough, which total to £200,000.00 in value at present.

We also met one of the former ‘Young Mayors’ Cllr. Jacob, who showed and explained the role and how important for young voices to be heard. The children were very excited and could not wait to get back to school to tell their classmates of what they have learnt.

On Thursday 19th December, we were treated to a super performance of the true representation of Christmas, the birth of Jesus. KS2 played instruments, sang beautifully and depicted through drama.  Our special thanks must go to Ms Ley and Ms Ramsay for the music, the choir, soloists, narrators, Year 3 tableau and all staff who were involved in preparing our children for these performances.

 

Infant Nativity – Angel Express

We all enjoyed a fabulous performance by our Reception and KS1 classes this week. The children spoke, sang, danced and played instruments beautifully. It really brought the festive spirit to us all. The ‘Angel Express’, brought a special message to us, that we must all keep close to our hearts in this season of Advent. Thank you to all the hard work of all the staff involved, they ensured that all children were given an opportunity to shine and most importantly enjoyed participating in this wonderful performance.

Choir at Carols on the Green

On Monday 9th December, our amazing choir were accompanied by staff on a very cold afternoon to participate in ‘Carols on the Green’. They sang beautifully and represented St. Augustine’s in a truly magnificent manner. Well done and thank you to all those staff and parent who supported the children.

Remembrance

The month of November signifies the time for ‘Remembrance’. Traditionally we remember those who have suffered harm or who have lost their lives whilst representing our country and for this purpose we have poppies in the School office which can be exchanged for a donation. We have prepared a board in the school hall to remember our loved ones.

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.
