Headmaster’s Round-up 28th January 2016

 

I would like to start this week by mentioning all of our swimmers. In the last year and a half swimming at Reigate St Mary’s has gone from strength to strength with our swimmers having two regular training sessions available each week, at Reigate Grammar School’s pool. This has resulted in us performing ever more strongly in local competitions, with some outstanding wins from some of our senior pupils in local individual events, and I am looking forward to the inter-school Gala, which we are hosting tonight.

Congratulations this week to go to our latest scholar. William Harrison (Boys’ Games Captain) has been offered a Sports Scholarship at Box Hill School. Well done Will and well deserved.

Well done also to our Green Leaders for the fourth edition of the Eco newsletter. It really is excellent and has a lot of interesting information for us all to take on board. You can find a link to this on the home page of the website. Our Green Flag is currently being displayed to the full, blowing in the January breeze, reminding us all of what we achieved in getting this accolade so quickly, but also the importance of continuing to be environmentally minded.

I would like to also draw your attention to the story of Gerry the Gingerbread Man who is having a fantastic time travelling the world. Please do follow this exciting story with your children which can be found on the ‘Early Years’ page, in the ‘Parents’ area of the website.

On Saturday we have the FOSMA film afternoon. If you have not yet signed up but would like your child to come along, do please get in touch with the School Office or contact FOSMA directly, by Friday at the latest.

Our short, short, short story and rhyme competitions are in full flow and you can see some of the entries on the website. If your child(ren) has/have not yet got involved I do encourage them to do so as it really helps with their literacy, creativity and is also, quite simply, a lot of fun.
