Week Commencing 12th November 2018

The whole school has had the opportunity to take two minutes’ silence prior to Remembrance Sunday on 11th November.
We stood in silence and thanked God for all those who lived out His word.

John 15 verse 13 ‘Greater Love has no Man than this that he lay down his life for his friends’.

I warmly invite you to view our ‘Peace Garden’ on Monday 12th November. All the children have made a poppy which will be displayed in the garden at the front of our school. You are invited to view our poppies and take a quiet moment for your own thoughts and prayers before coming into school for Morning Coffee or Tea and an opportunity to view the school at work.

This week is ‘Anti Bullying’ week; this is a theme which we will be talking about throughout the week. Our theme is ‘Choose Respect’

Monday 12th November the school is open 9-11am for parents and friends to view our ‘Peace Garden’ and view the school.

Tuesday 13th November our junior footballers are out at a tournament.
