Headmaster’s Roundup 12 October 2017
As we approach half term we have had another action packed, fun filled week. We enjoyed two great Harvest Services on Tuesday, including the girl choristers singing with the Godfrey Searle Choir for the first time; and they sang beautifully. We had a ‘Harvest celebrations around the world’ themed Lower School Service with a large number of children taking part. Also this week, Year 3 visited a Roman Villa, Year 5 enjoyed an Antarctic expedition, an author visited Reception, Years 1 and 2, 6R led an excellent Assembly all about the Tudors and life in England at that time and the choristers sang at a lunchtime concert at St Matthew’s today.
Thank you to everyone who donated money by covering our big E on the playground with coins. The E stood for the Easter Project, the main charity we are supporting this year through Harvest giving. Can I remind everyone that the FOSMA Firework event takes place on Friday, 3 November, the first week back after half term, so do book your tickets and put that date in the diary.
You should have received a leaflet last week about the Mustard Seed Relief Missions “Love in a Box”. We hope you will support this worthwhile cause by filling a shoe box with items listed in the leaflet, perhaps during the half term break. These boxes will be collected from RSM on 21 November and sent to under privileged children throughout Eastern Europe.
Finally, just a warning that there will be roadworks on Blackborough Road, outside the Parish School, starting during half term and running for 18 weeks. This will have inevitable consequences for traffic congestion so do bear this in mind if you come to school from that direction.
I wish you all a very enjoyable half term break.
