The PTA are hosting their 1st event – A Christmas Fair in the School Hall on Friday 6th December at 3pm
The admissions process, for those children who will start school September 2020, is now underway. If you are considering St Mary’s, and would like to visit the school, please contact the school office for further information and to book on a tour.
A big thank you to everyone who supported this event today. With some money still to come in, we have already raised over £1000!!! Amazing!
Something strange seems to have happened to the staff……
Through our work with the FSSP, we were invited to take part in a new age kurling tournament at Villiers High School yesterday. Teams from Y3 and Y4 represented the school and despite being complete novices acquitted themselves very well.
The Y3 team were third overall, whilst the Y4 team won their group. The medals were presented this morning in assembly by Mr Doyle and Mrs Mutch. Congratulations to all who took part.
We will be given a new age kurling kit for use in school, so everyone in KS2 will have an opportunity to try this out for themselves.
The children all enjoyed their festive lunch today. The chocolate yule log was a particular favourite!
We are delighted to have raised £115.33 for the Save the Children Christmas Jumper day.
The children decorated their own Christmas T-Shirts during special art classes and wore them during the day.
The Christmas events for the close of term are as follows:
Friday 14th December – Christmas Lunch
Monday 17th December – Y1-4 performance
Tuesday 18th December – Ash Nativity
Last day of term – Friday 21st December, school closes at 1.15pm. Please be advised that there is no after school club that day.
Many thanks to those who took part in this election, both the candidates and those who voted.
The count took place this evening in school with Mrs James acting as Returning Officer, and it was independently verified.
We are pleased to inform you that Mr Imran Awan was elected to this post.
85 votes were cast in total and the ballot papers will now be kept securely in school.
This afternoon we had a visit from Rev’d Dave to focus this important day of celebration.
To prepare for this special assembly, during the week, all classes have been working on a class art presentation. This was a montage of the symbols associated with Remembrance Day, or the written word.
As well as listening to poems and prayers written by the children, we observed 2 minutes silence.
Here are some examples of our beautiful work.
The school celebrated the Harvest Festival on Thursday with an assembly led by Mrs Hale and Mr Doyle.
Thank you for your very generous donations that are all bagged up, ready to go off to the Ealing Food Bank.
