Book Fair

We had our annual Scholastic book fair last week. Our target this year was £1000 and with the amazing support from parents and children we hit our target and over – we raised £1100 in total! This incredible amount is the highest in school history and will enable us to purchase resources to support the children’s learning. Thank you so much to everyone who came along and bought books. 

Air quality awards

Mrs Leith won a Champion award from Sustrans for all the work she has done to promote sustainable travel for the school. We are really proud of her, especially as there were only 10 awards given out across London, and she is the only person in Westminster to win an award!

On 5th December, Heidi, Mohammed and Myra attended the 2018 Top Schools accreditation seminar and awards ceremony at London’s Living Room at City Hall. St Mary’s won a ‘School of the Region’ award in recognition of our achievement in active and safer travel initiatives.

Winter Windows

On Friday 30th November, the winners of the Winter Windows competition attended a celebration of their work in Leicester Square. They received certificates and got to meet a very special guest! Go and have a look at their pictures which are being displayed in Leicester Square – they are really impressive! Here is a preview:

Prayer Space Day

On Wednesday 31st October, Kirstine and Charlotte from St Mary’s church ran a Prayer Space Day for the children. Each class took part in different activities which allowed them to reflect on their thoughts and feelings about different issues such as homelessness in London, natural disasters and peace. They also explored their own gifts and gave some really thoughtful responses.
