Gamesley Christmas Fair

Our choir attended Gamesley Christmas Fair last week and some of our staff ran a stall at the event. Thank you to all involved.

Whatever next!!!

St. Margaret’s Class 1 are reading Whatever Next!! by Jill Murphy in Literacy and are really enjoying the book.  Today to go with the lesson they have made some rockets which look fantastic.  Well done to all the children.

Uniform to Zambia

You may remember we recently sent old school uniforms you had donated to a school in Zambia. The school we gave the uniforms to is called Hope in Christ, its in the New Ngombe compound in Lusaka the capitol city of Zambia.

 

One of our parents friends run a small charity but they self-fund a trip to Zambia once a year; to take supplies and keep an eye on the two schools and one clinic they support. They also fund and install boreholes (this year they built another 11).

It’s called Oasis Relief Zambia, charity no. 1181996, and is on facebook if you want to see more posts/photos.

We think the children look fantastic in the uniforms and thank you for your donation. We hope to send more over when we can.

Remembrance Sunday

Some of our pupils attended the Parade today for Remembrance Sunday. They walked with the children of St. Mary’s before laying our wreath.

Well being

The well being of our children is paramount, we have created a board in the corridor where we can place information and the children can see where to go or who to talk to.

From staff room to ELSA room

A couple of times a week our school staff room at All Saints is transferred into our ELSA (Emotional, Literacy Support Assistant) room.  Mrs Parker has done a wonderful job in making the room feel welcoming.

Glossop Jog

Thank you to all our children, parents and staff who turned out for the jog this morning, we hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Macmillan coffee and cake

A big thank you to Bernie Bowler for organising a Coffee and Cake stall in aid of Macmillan cancer support. Thank you to the parents who baked and supported the event. We raised over £100.

Which house am I in?

The children from Class 1 at St. Margaret’s found out today which house they were going to be in. Year 6 children chose the names of the houses and came up with St. Catherine of Alexandria, St. Jerome,  St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Ursula. The children were also given their boxes to place their reward counters, there was a lot of excitement.
