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…
