Weekly News Friday 10th November

Dear Parents and Carers


“Wisdom is kind and considerate; it is full of compassion and shows itself by doing good.” St James


Parent Evenings

It was good to see so many parents and carers attending parent evenings this week. Many thanks to all for completing our parent questionnaire your views and opinions really are appreciated and help shape the work that we do in school.

If you didn’t manage to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher appointments can still be made through the school office.


Christmas Fair

Our Christmas Fair is on Friday 8th December. We have a number of non-uniform days in return for items for stalls at the fair.

Monday 20th November                Stationery Sets for presents for Fr Christmas’ Sack

Friday 24th November                    An item of colour for our colour raffle

Friday 1st November                       A nice bottle (that adults might enjoy!) for our bottle stall

Friday 8th December                       Each family is asked for a donation of cakes for the cake stall


We need volunteers to help organise the fair and help run the stalls. If you think you can help please speak to myself or contact the school office.


Children In Need

Friday 17th of November is the BBC Children In Need Day the children are asked to come into school dressed in spots or they can wear their Children In Need tee-shirts, Pudsey Ears etc. The children will during the day be taking part in Joe Wicks “Bearpee Challenge” where we will challenge each class to do 1000 “Bearpees” That’s around 33 per child in each class!

All we ask is that the children donate to Children in Need to join in the fun.


Goodbye Fr. Hans

Fr Hans will be celebrating his last Mass in St Simon’s Church on Sunday 19th November we would like as many children as possible to join and support the singing at 10:00a.m Mass. This would be an excellent way of saying thank you to Fr. Hans for all he has done for the children.


Year 5 Remembrance Liturgy

Today Year 5 led the school in our act of remembrance. This was a very moving liturgy which reminded us all of the sacrifice that was given and sadly the effect that conflict and war has on the whole of humanity.


In this time of trouble let us all remember to pray for peace in our troubled world. Well done to Year 5 for their hard work and well done Ms West, Mrs Dorman and Mrs Kirwan


Year 6 Class Mass 15th November

On Wednesday 15th November at 9:30 a.m. Year 6 will have a Mass celebrated in their classroom. As with all our Liturgies parents and carers are very welcome to join us.


School Football Team

The team will be playing a match at Repton Manor Primary School on Friday 10th November. I am sure that they will give their very best. This means that this week there was no Friday Football as it is an away match. Friday Football will be on again next week.



All children are expected to wear full school uniform. Please can parents make sure that all uniform items are clearly labelled with your child’s name.


With best wishes
