19th October 2018 Newsletter
Well here we are– at the end of term 1! Where has the time gone? We had some lovely harvest celebrations this week with the infants going to a special harvest mass on Wednesday and the juniors having their harvest celebration yesterday. Caring Hands came into school today to receive the donations that you kindly gave to support the homeless in our local community. Thank you so much for your contributions.
Fr Baker came into school on Monday and led the whole school assembly for us all– I’ve no doubt it made a nice change from me doing it every Monday morning! We are grateful for him doing this and we will be welcoming him back in shortly.
The children in our school who have signed up for the Kent Childrens University had a lovely meeting after school on Tuesday, they made “friendship pebbles” to hide around the playground. The other children can find them, read them and maybe give them to one of their friends to share the kind sentiments or maybe even hide them again for others to find. Thank you to those parents who came in to school at 4pm on Tuesday to support their children. We know that they will be out and about over the autumn break going to places and earning stamps for their “passports” Thanks also to Mr Bunker for leading on this.
On Wednesday as October is Black History Month we had a dress up day with the theme being African culture and traditions. The children looked lovely, so colourful and vibrant. Its very enriching to celebrate the many cultures that we have here
Have a wonderful autumn break, we will see you all on the first day of term 2 Monday 29th October. Take care
