Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

Thank you to all of the parents who attended the Parent Teacher consultations this week.  There will be opportunity to see the work that the children have been doing in their books and visit the classrooms on Wednesday 21st March and Thursday 22nd March from 3pm.   

May I take this opportunity to wish all our mums and grandmothers a very happy Mother’s Day.   Today we celebrated our mum’s in a very special prayer service and it was lovely to have so many mums joining us.  

Belinda, our computing and internet safety consultant will be back in school on Tuesday 20th March at 2:30 -3:30 to speak to parents and then will give the same talk between 5-6pm. I really hope that as many of you can make it as internet safety is a huge issue that does affect everyone.  

This week Jarvis will be going home with Lorenzo in Blue 2.  He has shown patience and kindness this week to the other children in his class.  Lorenzo is the only one that laughs at Miss Donnellan's (awful) jokes.  He is a mini-gentleman! He always offers to help even if the jobs are not very exciting. He always works hard in class and tries his best, he perseveres with all activities.  Lorenzo is simply a joy to teach and he makes the adults smile every day!

Auction Update
We are now only weeks away from the school auction – Saturday 24th March. As you know, the Auction is our biggest fundraiser and, in order for it to be a success, we need as many items to auction as possible. Donations of good quality items, time and skills are all essential: Can you bake a cake? Can you design an Easter bonnet?  All items need to be left at the school reception on any Monday or Friday up to 9:30am where they will be collected and checked in. If you plan to offer use of your holiday home, please contact stjosauction@gmail.com  so that the Auction Team can market your property accordingly with photos and available dates thus encouraging bidders. Our Class artworks are beginning to take shape and will, no doubt, be as breath-taking as ever. Thank you all for your dedication and support. Together, we will make this Auction the best yet.


Have a lovely weekend and may god bless you and your families and keep you safe.
