What's On This Week

17th October 2016

Dear Parents / Carers,

Another fantastic week is over… here are a few of the highlights:

  • School Development Meeting: On Tuesday evening parents, staff, governors and children came together to review the future developments for the school. The feedback from the evening was exceptional with all the school stakeholders really excited about the new and exciting initiatives planned for the school. The only disappointment was that only 6 parents turned up out of a possible 100!  
  • Weather Watchers on BBC Solent: Mrs Regan, William Mitchell and Sophie Smyth were radio stars on Wednesday morning as they reported on the weather for the day on BBC Radio Solent. They all performed brilliantly and were very calm, cool and collected. Well done
  • Wacky Hair Day for Weldmar Hospice: On Thursday we were very much entertained with an array of creative hairstyles in aid of the Weldmar Hospice. A big thank you to everyone who joined in the fun and helped raise £75 for this very worthy cause. Two Weldmar representatives joined us for our assembly, including the Weldbaa Sheep, to help explain to the children the importance of this incredible hospice.
  • Open Morning: Many thanks to all the children who were simply fantastic at our open morning today. The parents who joined us were extremely impressed with the behaviour of the children, the calibre of the teaching and the standard of the learning environment.
  • Football and Netball Matches. The matches this week were played at home against Sherborne Primary school. Both teams played really well but just lost out on a win. Both football & netball scores were 2:1 to Sherborne Primary. However, the children’s heads were held really high as they all played really well.
  • Welcome to Mrs Grove and Mrs O’Rourke: Mrs Grove and Mrs O’Rourke have enjoyed a great first week in Ruby class and they are both really looking forward to continuing to work closely with the children.

Please look on our School website www.bishopscaundle.dorset.sch.uk  for photos of these events.
