Next week’s value is Endurance
“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
1 Corinthians 13:7
There is a lot of important information included in this week’s bulletin, so I suggest you sit down with a cup of tea as you read through, and I shall keep my part brief.
We may have been premature in celebrating the good weather earlier this week; however, the sun always shines at St Mary’s and we have had another happy, busy and productive week.
On Tuesday, Mrs. Evans and I met with Jane Whittington from the Diocese to discuss our ongoing preparation for the SIAMs inspection, which is due in the next academic year. We have spent time looking at and discussing our vision for the school in the coming years. Once finalised, we will share this with you, as it is a vision for all stakeholders in our school and community.
Year 4 have had a sporty week as they took part in a confederation multi-sports event at Woolmer Hill on Wednesday, and this morning they have braved the pouring rain to begin their Bikeability training!
This morning, Year 1 made a dramatic entrance to their class assembly as a Chinese dragon danced into the hall to kick start their informative performance all about Chinese New Year. The children had worked hard to learn their lines, and we learnt how the animals came to be chosen, including a reenactment of the swimming race! Well done to Year 1 and their teachers.
Next week, it is the turn of Year 6 to take part in Bikeability; please ensure all necessary equipment, including a raincoat, is brought to school on Monday morning. Let’s hope we see some better weather!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs Sheila Buckley
Acting Head teacher
