St. Mary's Junior School Newsletters
Maundy Thursday 20th April 2018
It has been more than three weeks since our last newsletter and in that time we have experienced the joy of Easter in our parishes. As we are now in the Season of Easter the children have continued to celebrate in school and the weather has been correspondingly delightful.
Easter Carol Service
As part of our celebration of Easter, all the children gathered in the church on Thursday afternoon for a service of rejoicing. It was another great example of the musical talents of our children. Many thanks to Ms Whinnom and the other staff who helped the children to prepare.
First Communion Meeting
Preparations continue for our First Holy Communion at the start of June. Tomorrow at 10.30 there will be a meeting for parents in the large hall at church to discuss the party that will take place afterwards.
Our new term started with a successful basketball tournament at Coulsdon College on Monday. It is the first time that St Mary’s have competed and we were delighted to finish third of seven teams. Many thanks to
Mr Seward for preparing and training the children; and congratulations to our squad: Ayomide, Zavier, Maleena, Breyanna, Calvin and Stephen.
Please note that now that we are into the summer term we have started to finalise dates for a number of events.
Saturday 12th May - Catholic Schools’ Netball and Football Tournament at Margaret Roper School
Monday 14th - Thursday 17th May - SATs testing for Year 6 children
Friday 25th May - St Mary’s Feast Day
There was no class assembly this week because of our Easter Service. This term the children are beginning to prepare liturgies to which parents will be invited, so next week is our first practice for this. As a result there will not be an assembly until the following week.
The achievement certificates this week are awarded to
Bupe in 3D, Edmundo in 3M, Gabriel in 4L, Jokubus in 4S, Obehi in 5C, Gabriella in 5V, Sebastian in 6C and Jones in 6O. The Musicians of the week are Courtney and Obehi in 5C. The Swimmer of the week is Gabriela Figueira in 3D. The Headteacher’s award goes to David in 3M.
Have a restful weekend
