Friday 12th October 2018

Dear Parents

In October there are two areas of focus for all of us in school: October is the month of the Rosary, and it is also when we celebrate the achievements of those in our families and communities of African and Afro-Caribbean origin. In line with the initiatives led by Croydon Council we will be celebrating in a variety of ways.

Freshwater Theatre
On Wednesday we welcomed Freshwater Theatre to the school. The facilitator, Valentine, was very engaging with the children on the subject of the African Diaspora and they learned a lot about the important history of this period. Many children have new heroes as a result of these workshops and we will be encouraging them to research further.

Cross Country Championships
On Wednesday Mr Chappell and Mrs O’Hara accompanied our Year 3 and 4 team to Lloyd Park to compete against the other Catholic Schools. Despite blustery conditions (and some steep hills) the children coped well with what was a first attempt for many. Results will be confirmed when they are shared by the organising school.

Ms Watts
Next, Friday 19th October, will be Ms Watts’ last day with us at St Mary’s. Ms Watts agreed to take on the Year 5 role for us until October half term, and we thank her for her commitment to the school for this period. A letter outlining the changes in Year 5 has been circulated today.

Wear it Pink
Next Friday we will be supporting Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer Now. Children and staff are encouraged to wear their own clothes, in pink of course, and bring in a donation for this very worthy cause.
We would ask for a minimum of £1 but if you wish to give more, we would be happy to forward it to the charity.

The achievement certificates this week are awarded to
Hanna in 3A, Sean in 3E, Hadassah in 4D, John in 4T, Charles in 5B, Jazzlyne in 5C, Ashley in 6G and Chiemeka in 6P. The Musician of the week is Temi in 4T. The Swimmer of the week is Reka, Olesa, Awunterim and Dawid in 5B. The Headteacher’s award goes to Willow in 5B. The Kindness Award goes to Junior in 4D.

Have a restful weekend.
Best wishes

Head of School
