Dear Parents and Carers


“Always remember you matter, you're important and you are loved, and you bring to this world things, no one else can.” Charlie Mackesy, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse


On Thursday we joined St Teresa’s school for a virtual Mass to celebrate The Feast of the Ascension. We thank Fr. Piotr from St Teresa’s Parish and St Teresa’s school for inviting us to join them for this special occasion.


Next week the children will be participating in an Arts Week where they will be working with two professional artists to produce an outdoor art exhibition in our school grounds. The exhibition will be open for all to view on Friday 21 May when parents and carers come to pick up the children.


We ask that you will be very sensible and keep to social distancing (particularly among adults) when viewing the children’s work.


During next week the children will be working outdoors with the artists so all must come to school with a coat as rain is forecast throughout the week. Let us all hope and pray that the weather stays good enough while the children are outside working.


Many thanks for all the plastic bottles etc. that have been collected for the children to work with. Year 3 children in particular need to be congratulated for the enormous amount of material that they have collected over the last two weeks.


Next Thursday 20 May our school caterers are offering a “Taste of America” themed dinner in which the children can choose from a Beef Burger in a bun, Veggie Hotdog, Chips, sweetcorn, baked beans all followed up with a choice of fruit or yummy chocolate orange drizzle cake.


The new Trim Trail is nearly completed and we have said goodbye to the workmen who completed the groundworks and installed the play equipment. Today another crew laid down the “rubber mulch” safe surface so the equipment should be ready to use by the beginning of next week.


The children have been very excited watching how the project has developed over the last week and they will need careful supervising when they first get to use this.

I need to remind all parents and carers that bicycles and scooters are not to be ridden on our school site when dropping off or picking up children. Any child who rides a bike or scooter on our school site at these times will be banned from bringing their bike or scooter to school. This is for the safety of all as we wish to avoid any nasty accidents.


With best wishes


Peter McCabe
