NewsLetter 15th March 2019

Friday 15th March 2019 Dear Parents and Carers, We are half way through the second half of the Spring term.  The school year is passing by quickly.  We are now in the liturgical season of Lent. We are asked to do three things during Lent.  Firstly, to pray, secondly, to fast and thirdly, to give alms.  For the children we are asking them to show acts of kindness, to be extra respectful and to really consider their actions when playing with others.  When discussing this with your children I would like you to remind them of our Golden Rules. Juniors Infants ·         Follow in God’s footsteps and be a positive role model ·         Have respect for other people and their property ·         Walk quietly and sensibly up and down the stairs ·         Honesty, manners and truthfulness are priceless gifts that we can share with everybody ·         Keep your arms, feet and nasty words to yourself ·         We are gentle: We do not  hurt others ·         We are kind and helpful: We do not hurt anybody’s feelings ·         We listen: We don’t interrupt ·         We are honest: We don’t cover up the truth ·         We work hard: We don’t waste our own or others’ time ·         We look after property: We don’t waste or damage things So that we maintain our high standards of behaviour for learning, our fundamental and non-negotiable classroom expectations are: To be able to teach without interruption To have ‘quiet’ when explaining things To stay in their places if told to To put their hand up and ask politely To look and listen when the teacher is talking To use quiet working voices in the classroom Please recap these rules and expectations with your children so they can see we are working together. CAFOD  The children had a CAFOD assembly where they learnt all about the issues facing Bangladeshi fishermen who no longer can feed their families because there are no fish and there is no money. On Friday 15th March there is a non-uniform day to support CAFOD. This is also the family fast day of Lent. We are asking the children to bring in a donation - £1 would be fabulous. Likewise, on Tuesday 19th March it is St Joseph’s Day – our patron saint. The children can wear non uniform on this day and we will be celebrating the great saint in all sorts…

8th February 2019 Dear Parents and Carers, We are already in the penultimate week of the first Spring half term.  Time has flown by and we are almost at half term! Building works Over the next few months there will be significant building works taking place on site that will impact the whole school. This is the continuation of the windows project and essential work that needs to be completed regarding the external maintenance of our school building.  The age of our school is beginning to tell! School Dinners Our school dinner company ‘Caterlink’ are producing some lovely meals for our children.  We are very lucky in Southwark in that every child receives a free school meal in primary school.  ‘Caterlink’ adhere to government guidelines regarding sugar intake and only cook with food that has been approved to the Soil Association Food for Life Silver Award standard.  Please ask Mrs Gallagher, Mr Reilly or Ms Kirrane for any further information. TeCola Project Over the last couple of years Mr Balseiro has been working very hard to establish Spanish as our chosen Modern Foreign Language.  This academic year he is engaging with a project that is directly linked to Queen Mary University.  This project allows children from all over the world to communicate in real time with other children – in Spanish!  We have some amazing children who are excellent at Spanish, even though it is not their first or second language, taking part in this project.   This is very exciting for us! Sporting activities  The school has again achieved well in sports this half-term. Yr 6 boys and girls have both qualified for the finals of the Bacon’s Cup whilst the girls are also through to a final where they are representing Dulwich Hamlet F.C. at Sutton Utd. Football Club. In athletics both Yr 6 and Yr 5 have qualified for the indoor finals to be held at Crystal Palace next week. Yr.2 competed in an indoor athletics competition against other Southwark Schools where they finished a close second. Clubs and enrichment A range of clubs are offered throughout the school; at present cooking, multi-sports, art, sewing, drumming, violin, football, drama, art, Taekwando and gymnastics are taking place. We have had some very good feedback about our clubs so make sure you register in good time for them. School trips  All year groups are very busy supporting learning with their…
