Dear Parents

It was a pleasure to welcome the children back to school on Tuesday following their half term holiday.
The teaching staff had a very useful INSET on Monday making preparations for the next academic year and reviewing curriculum plans.

First Holy Communion
The most important news of the half term holiday was that the majority of our Year 3 children received First Holy Communion at St Mary’s. It was a very moving occasion and it was so nice to see our community gather together to celebrate. Many thanks to Father Patrick, who was the principle celebrant, and Mr Haddad and his team of catechists.

Mr Frank Game
Mr Game's funeral service took place on Tuesday 28th May at St. Patrick's, Wapping.
May he rest in peace.

Music Concert
Thank-you to all the children who took part in the music concert yesterday afternoon in the school hall. It was a wonderful showcase of the many talents of our children. Our thanks to Ms Whinnom who organised the event.

Year 6 Residential Visit - PGL Liddington, Wiltshire
On Monday 37 of our Year 6 children will be departing for their residential visit to Liddington. We have used the centre many times and I am sure that the children will have an amazing time. As I will be leading the visit,
please address any concerns that you might have next week to the school office who will make sure that they are passed on to the right person.

Happy School Bag
As you will have noticed, our collections have re-started after the holiday. Please bring bags to the collection point at the entrance. All donations to be dropped to school by Tuesday 11th June.
