Here is the last newsletter of 2018!
On Sunday 9th December, the choir performed at St Mary’s Church Christingle service. They did a fantastic job and represented the school beautifully. Well done to all of you, and also to Mr Watkins for his hard work.
On Monday 3rd December, we were treated to a performance by the cellists and violinists in Years 1, 2 and 3. They showed us the skills they have been practising this term, as well as playing some of the pieces they’ve learnt. It was very impressive – we have some very talented musicians at St Mary’s!
We had our Christmas Fair on Friday 7th December and it was a really fantastic occasion! Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported it – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
We would like to say a special thank you to the Friends for all their hard work in planning and organising the fair (as well as tidying up afterwards!) Your support is really appreciated.
The fair raised £1575.44 which was amazing! We are going to put the money towards updating and improving the playground.
Here is this week’s newsletter:
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.
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.
