We had a wonderful first assembly of the Summer term and presentation of our latest students of the week. Firstly we received the great news that our latest renewal for the Green Flag has been successful and we have been awarded our eight Green Flag. We also reflected on our trip to Dublin earlier this week and our Mission Possible award. This really was a special day and an award which all our students should be very proud of.

Next week is ‘Active School’s Week’. As always we spoke of the importance of being active, having a health lifestyles and learning to enjoy different activities and sports. Most importantly we focused on enjoyable participation and learning to work and play with others. Please note the children can wear their tracksuits throughout the week.

Our teachers this week praised students for settling down and getting straight back to work on their return to school. Some expressed their delight at the maturity and level of common sense on display this week. It is always a pleasure to hear of children achieving with a task that they found difficult. It shows that their hard work will pay off, if they persevere. Children learn by example and the praise we heard today was a great example for all of our students.

Congratulations to those awarded Student of the Week. Keep up this great work!

Dates for your Diary for the coming week.

Monday: Reminder on Monday next we will close for the May Bank Holiday.

Finally best of luck to our 5th and 6th Class students who prepare next week for their confirmation on Saturday 12th. We wish each of our students and their families well and hope they enjoy this very special day.
