We have has such a lovely final week at school, with a special whole school worship today to say goodbye and farewell to our fabulous year six children! We hope that you all have a summer break filled with happiness and joy, and we look forward to seeing you all again in September.
Yesterday we gave a very special welcome to Mr Bryan Marivate, the Headteacher from our partner school in South Africa – Masizani Primary School. Mr Marivate had a wonderful day, visiting classrooms and talking to children about gender equality, the focus of the visit. Today the children all look fabulous in their yellow and blue clothes to celebrate Masizani Day!
Thank you to the Friends of St Philip’s and to Burtonwood Parish Council for the kind donations towards the cost of our new Jungle Gym. The Jungle Gym was installed over the half term and the children are thoroughly enjoying their new play equipment.
It has now been confirmed that the early May Bank Holiday will now take place on Friday 8th May 2020, rather than Monday 4th May to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.
It was lovely to welcome all our families back to school yesterday and hear all about their adventures over half term. We are looking forward to a fun filled and productive final half term.
Thank you for coming along and supporting our school sports days – they have been a great success and the children have shown such wonderful sportsmanship and great athleticism!
