Dear Parents, we drew the term to a close this week with two powerful re-enactments of The
Passion performed by Year 5. The children reminded us all that Easter is our most special season as Catholics and reflecting on those events should bring hope and joy into our lives. Thank you Year 5!
Our school choir also took part in the Spelthorne Music Festival at St. Michael’s Church this week.
It was another fantastic success so well done to the choir! Well done also to the School Council, who organised a fantastic day last Friday as we celebrated Comic Relief by having a mufti day and a disco. The children had a fantastic time and we managed to raise £865 for CAFOD and Comic Relief.
The summary of results from the parent and pupil surveys are now available on the website. You will see that the responses are extremely positive, in fact the parent survey is the most positive
response we have received to date. It is extremely reassuring to know that all of the respondents (nearly 200) feel that the children at St. Michael’s are happy, feel safe, taught well, well behaved and the school is well led and managed. All respondents agreed that they would recommend the school to another parent. We can’t really ask for much more than that! Your support is very much
appreciated by all the staff.
I feel I have inundated you with links to charity donation websites in the last month or so. All are worthy causes but I will flag up two again as they are dedicated to raising school funds. Firstly, a
reminder that wonderful Miss Cannon is walking non-stop to Brighton to raise money for new
tablets—please donate here. Secondly, a group of fantastic parents have come together to raise £3,000 of PTA funds to continue to improve our playtimes. Please donate here if you can.
On the subject of playtimes, Michael Follett of the Opal Play Project, is soon to release a book on ‘Creating Excellence in Primary School Playtimes’. It is available for pre-order now and you may see some familiar faces on the cover!
