2nd December 2022

Good afternoon,


December is already upon us and school is certainly feeling very Christmasy.  

It has been a busy week and it has been lovely to spend so much time with the children.


On Wednesday we enjoyed our Advent service at St James' church.  The service was very special and a perfect way to begin our preparation for Christmas.  The choir, joined by the rest of the school, led our singing beautifully. Thank you Mrs Gan.  

The walk back from church was muddy but it was great to chat to the children and I even learnt a new joke from Leo!


At the end of the afternoon, the whole school joined together on the field to run with Freddy as he completed his 100km in November for charity.  It was great to hear the whole school cheering him on as well as his friends, family and Mr O'Reilly running alongside him.  Well done Freddy.


Today the girls have a football match at home against Willow bank.  The girls worked incredibly hard and should be proud of the 1-1 score, another goal from Rose and still unbeaten in the league.


The Christmas post box has been brought out ready for the children to post Christmas cards to each other if they would like to from Monday. I know our Prefects will enjoy the job of distributing them.


I look forward to seeing lots of you along with past pupils and their families at our Christmas fair tomorrow 3-6pm.  The auction is already doing so well so it will be great to have our first 'in school' fair since 2019.  The FOFSA committee have and are working so hard and I can't thank them enough for all they do for our school.


Next week we will send home the Christmas play tickets in envelopes.  On Friday when we have the Christmas lunch the children are invited to wear a Christmas jumper or Christmasy coloured jumper instead of their school jumper or cardigan if they wish.


I wish you a lovely weekend and hope to see you tomorrow.

With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
