Dear Parents

 

Parent Meetings – 15 & 17 October 2019

 

It is hard to believe that we are coming up to the first half of the Autumn Term already with Parent Meetings schedule on 15 and 17 October.  We remind you that, as a consequence, there will be no afternoon clubs on either of these dates.  Therefore children should be collected at their normal going home time unless they are waiting for parents in the supervision room.

 

Tea Time Concert

 

The musical talents of our budding musicians were on display once again on Monday afternoon for our first Tea Time Concert of the year.  This gives pupils and opportunity to perform in front of a small and friendly audience and so gain confidence in performing.  Each term we endeavour to include a mini concert and invite approximately 10 pupils, from novices to advanced performers, to share their enjoyment of music.  Special congratulations to those pupils who stood up for the first time.

 

Silver Sunday

 

Our Chamber Choir delighted a gathering of approximately 100 senior citizens and carers at the Victory Services Club yesterday at the start of Silver Sunday celebrations, October 2019.  The audience joined in and sang along with the children to a medley of songs from Mary Poppins.  After singing the children joined in with supervised board games before returning to school.  It was a very special inter-generational event that we look forward to repeating in the future.

Macmillan 

 

Our annual Macmillan coffee/tea and cake afternoon is coming up on Friday, 18 October and we once again warmly invite parents from Junior One and Form One to bring and buy a cake(s) for this very worthy cause.  Any left over delicacies will find their way to those supported by the Marylebone Project.  Miss Duffy and Mrs Rogers have prepared some fun slide shows of the children this term so far to share.

 

Maths Talk

 

Mr Westerman will be hosting a Talk on the CHS methods of maths layout and preferred calculation style and invites parents to participate in this workshop.  This will take place in school at 5.15pm on Tuesday, 29 October.  If you plan on attending please respond by email.

 

Carol Concert

 

Please note that we have changed the date and time of our Carol Concert later this term.  We are delighted that St John’s Church has been able to give us our first choice on Thursday, 12 December 2019 at 12-1pm.  The children will be taken home directly from the church by parents/carers to start their Christmas holidays.
