Weekly News Friday 13 May

Dear Parents and carers

“It is not enough to say ‘I love.’ We must put that love into a living action.”

St Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa)

 

Well done to our Year 6 who completed their S.A.T.s this week. The children showed great resilience in completing these assessments over the week. They were all very positive throughout and gave their very best.  I am very proud of our pupils.

 

50th Anniversary Celebrations

The children are working very hard towards our 50th Anniversary. There is a lot of great history and artwork going on. The children are practicing performing songs from the last 50 years and there has been lots of discussion over the differences between how the school is now and what it was like in the past. We are all looking forward to the following:

  1. Wednesday 18th May Dress as someone famous from the last 50 years
  2. Friday 20th May in the school at 2:00p.m.  Music Concert (All welcome- this will be much better than Eurovision!)
  3. Thursday 26th May Display and exhibition of photographs and artefacts from the school’s past
  4. Friday 27th May 10:00a.m Celebration Mass on school Play-ground (weather permitting)
  5. Street Party for the children from 2:00p.m

 

If you are a past pupil and have any old photographs or stories etc. that you would like to share it is not too late to pass these onto future generations please contact via the school office or by emailing me: peter.mccabe@st-simons-ashford.kcsp.org.uk

 

Special School Meal

On Thursday 19th May our school catering company are providing a special meal for school census day. The menu is:

Beef or Veggie Burger served with chips, sweetcorn and baked beans followed by strawberry jelly or chocolate brownie. Mmmmmmm!

All children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal. The more children in EYFS and KS1 that sign up for a meal on census day the more funding for meals the school will get.

 

Year 5 Visit St Anselm’s

On Monday Year 5 as part of transition to secondary school will visit St Anselm’s Catholic School in Canterbury. The children will try out a few taster lessons and have a tour of the school’s facilities. This is to give them a feel for what it is like to attend a secondary school. Many thanks to St Anselm’s for organising this for the children.

 

With best wishes
