Information from Mrs Driver

There has been so much happening in school recently I thought I would update you on what has been going on.

Our netball teams have had a fantastic run of success recently. After the A team were runners up in the A team rally, our B Team went on to win their rally and then we had a team who took part in the High 5 tournament run by The Sports Partnership. They went on to win and are now through to the next stage of the Tournament, playing after half term. We then had a group of Year 3 and Year 4 children taking part in a Speed Stacking competition and their performance was amazing, winning the tournament by a long way! We had a group of Year 2 gymnasts who went to a gymnastics competition where the children came 5th which was wonderful as it was their first competition. Our General Knowledge Quiz Team reached the semi-finals of the National Competition where they came 4th. Scoring over 1000 points which was phenomenal! And as if that wasn’t enough … our Girls’ Football Team won the Wix 7 a side Millennium Shield at the recent finals played at Clarence Park, the home of St. Albans City.

We are very proud of all of our pupils; they all represented the school well and were a credit to us all. Congratulations to everyone!

Tomorrow (Sat 10th) we are taking part in The Fair on the Square! The weather does not look great but we will battle on through the wind and rain with our bowling alley and then with our school choir singing at 11.30am. The fete is open from 10.00am to 2.00pm.

Please keep our school fete date – 7th June 2014 – firmly fixed in your mind and watch out for the letters coming out asking for different items. This is our main fund raising event for the year and we do rely very heavily upon parental involvement. Speak to any member of the SPA if you would like to offer your services!

There is currently a vacancy in the school kitchen for a General Assistant. It is for 10 hours a week from 11.45 to 1.45 every day. If you are interested please contact Margita Munday – Senior Contract Manager for Herts Catering, on 07932 724356.

We do send out regular reminders about the fact that we are a ‘nut free’ environment and it is extremely important that everyone adheres to this. We have children in school with severe nut allergies and the best prevention is to have NO nuts in school at all. This includes birthday sweets, cakes for events and especially packed lunches on school trips.

I look forward to welcoming you into school at any of the many events planned for the summer term and don’t hesitate to come in and see us if you have any concerns.
