Headteacher’s Newsletter Friday 3rd November 2017

Welcome back to another busy half term. The redevelopment of the school field is gathering pace and for the first time in many years it is level! The work on the drainage system has started and will be completed over the coming weeks Thank you for your understanding during this very busy time and adhering to the health and safety procedures when dropping off and collecting your child. Fr TJ celebrated mass for the feast of All Saints on Wednesday morning for the school community. He spoke to the children about how to live like a saint by following in the footsteps of Christ. It was a wonderful way to start the half term and my thanks to Mrs Porter and the children who helped prepare the liturgy. There are still a number of children coming to school without a jumper or a coat; please make sure that over the winter months your child wears warm clothing to school and is labelled clearly. Thank you.




The word of the week is HUMILITY – it is quite appropriate on the feast of St Charles Borromeo that this is the word to reflect upon. He was the joint founder of the Oblates of St Ambrose who took the latin form of the word humility as their motto. How do you put others above yourself so that you too can be humble?



Teacher / Parent Consultations – It was good to see so many of you on Tuesday evening at this important event. These meetings are an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s class teacher and discuss with them how they have settled in to their new classes. They also offer an opportunity to look through your child’s books and have an understanding of their progress to this point in the school year. I hope that you found them insightful.



Redevelopment of the School Field – for the first time in forty four years the school field is level! After a great deal of digging and rolling of earth the complicated work can begin. The drainage system was delivered to school this afternoon and the work on digging the trenches is underway. Over the coming weeks you should see the pitch begin to take shape. Keep watching for further updates.
