Dear St. Mary's Parents and Carers, 

We now have only 1 week to go until the half term holidays so I thought I should give you an update on what we have all been getting up to at St Mary’s.

Our wonderful new gardens!
Our planting and growing is spreading and expanding throughout the schools and we are busily growing vegetables for the annual schools produce sale Clocktower in Central Croydon on Thursday 11thJuly from 1.00 p.m. Please pop along and support them if you can.

KS2 SATs are over 
Now our Year 6 children have finished their exams and I am extremely proud of all their hard work and positive attitudes. They have moved on to much more exciting learning. Apart from the gardening, they are now busily rehearsing for the summer production, which this Year will be ‘Olivia’, how exciting! 

Catholic Schools Swimming Gala 
Next Wednesday our Junior swim squad will be competing at Catholic Schools Swimming Gala. We are the current Champions, no pressure Miss Aherne! 

Our Year 2 choir will be performing on stage at Aylesford Priory next Wednesday. They have been rehearsing two songs: ‘Mary did you know?’ and ‘Let it be’ and are already sounding amazing. I cannot wait to see them perform next week. 

If you have children attending the Junior School you may have already read that Mr Game, who was the Junior School Deputy Headteacher for many years sadly passed away on Thursday. He was an extremely talented teacher, full of kindness, good humour and a deep and enduring concern for his pupils and for our school. After he retired, he kept in touch. He often visited us and our school was always a much happier place for him having been there. We at St Mary’s will miss him greatly, rest in peace dear Mr Game.

With very best wishes,

Miss O’Callaghan

Executive Headteacher
