Head’s Newsletter 17th June 2016
The weeks are beginning to rattle by and there is much to be completed before the end of term. It has been another very busy week in school which started on Monday with our Maths day and culminated in the England v Wales game on Thursday afternoon. A questionnaire was sent out earlier in the week about the school’s behaviour system – Stay on Green. Please remember to return them by Friday 24th June. The next major event to be held at school is our “International Afternoon” on Friday 24th June. it will run from 3:20pm through to 5:00pm. We are encouraging the children to come to school on the day dressed in costume of a country or a culture they have association with. If the weather holds and the sun shines the event will take place on the field. If it rains it will take place in the school hall and canteen area. If you are able to support the event by bringing a dish along that would be fantastic. We look forward to welcoming you next week.
The word of the week is: SELFLESS. Being selfless is the opposite of being selfish. It is about being very aware of others’ needs or interests and putting them before our own. In this Year of Mercy perhaps being selfless is something we could all consider to be more aware of.
Children Coming to School Early: During the warmer months children often come to school earlier than they would in the winter. Whilst the school makes provision for children to be on site from 7:45am via the Breakfast Club we can not be responsible for children dropped to school before 8:45am. Many children this week have been dropped to school at 8:30am unsupervised which is a concern in terms of Health and Safety. Please be mindful of the correct procedures when dropping your child to school before 8:45am. Thank you for your support in this very important matter.
Twitter Feed: We are now on TWITTER! Our handle is ss alban and stephen – We will update the content as new and important events take place.
Gate to the Camp Road 28th June: Please note that for this date ONLY the gate to the Camp Road will be closed and re open on 29th June.
A Prayer of St Ignatius
Teach us, good Lord,
to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost;
to fight and not to heed the wounds;
to toil and not to seek for rest;
to labour and not to ask for any reward,
save that of knowing that we do your will.
HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND!
