Mayor of London’s Visit to St Mary’s

Yesterday, we received a visit from Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, to talk with us about air pollution. The children showed Mr Khan various different projects we have already worked on, such as turning our car park into a garden and all our active travel posters. He was very impressed with how knowledgeable the children were and how much they had already achieved. See more in this video on Twitter

Mr Khan was also joined by Nickie Aiken, leader of Westminster Council. Between them, they will be funding air filtration systems for our classrooms to ensure the air that children breathe is as clean as possible.

Everyone loved playing out in the street, as it was closed to traffic for the morning to let us hold a ‘play street’. Our visitors even joined in with the games!

We are so proud of our children and their courageous advocacy on this topic. They were the highlight of the BBC London News. Well done.

Music Masters Concert Evening

Last week, we were delighted to host our first evening concert for friends and families of St Mary’s, organised by London Music Masters. We were extremely lucky to have Alexandra Soumm and Paloma Kouider visit us and play a fabulous repertoire of pieces, from Mozart to Ravel. It was a magical experience and wonderful that so many families joined us, including those with really young children. Part of the Music Masters programme is making classical music accessible to all, and this was a great way to do this.

Attendance Award Winners!

We are delighted that 65 of our children met or exceeded their attendance targets last term, or kept 100% attendance. Well done to all those children. Particular congratulations go to F2, Y3 and Y6 where a high proportion of the class achieved this. The children who exceeded their target will be able to choose a special prize from Miss Clarke-Harding this afternoon.

Every child from F2 to Y6 will receive a new target for the summer term on Thursday. Let’s see who else can beat their goal!
