St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

It is hard to believe but this is the last newsletter of this academic year, just where has the year gone? It has been another fabulous year at St Luke’s with the children experiencing many different things, learning lots, including how to get on in a group, and enjoying working together.  Thank you to all of you for supporting the work we do here.

Thank you to the PTA for all their work this year, and for the disco on Tuesday. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Sports Day went very well yesterday, despite the forecast the weather was perfect, warm, cloudy and dry. The children worked well together in their houses and all had a good time.

Talking of sports we have again been awarded Games Mark Gold in recognition of all the sport we offer the children.

Some of our sports kit has yet to be returned 3 shirts are missing (numbers 17,18&19) as are 3 pairs of shorts (numbers 13,17&18) also 11 pairs of black socks with PB Sports written on them. Please can you have an extra look at home for them as we need the kit for future events.

If you have not settled your dinner money debt yet please do so immediately. We would hate to have to refer anyone to the legal department in order to begin proceedings against them but we may have no option if the debt is not paid.  Dinner money debt comes out of the school budget we have to educate your children not out of a pot at the council.

We finish for the summer tomorrow. We will be saying goodbye to the Year Six children in true St Luke’s style with celebrations not tears.  They will be leading the assembly in the morning have lunch with the staff and meet up for tea at Pizza Express at 5pm.

School restarts on Tuesday 5th of September for everyone except the Reception children who start on Thursday 7th.

As well as some of our children we will be saying goodbye to Andrew the Vicar who is moving to a new role in the south and to Mrs Farrell who, after a huge number of years supporting a huge number of children (I am not allowed to say how many but it is a lot), is leaving us to do other things. Thank you to both of them for all they have given the school.

I have been sent information about an event in Norfolk Square on Friday 28th July 9.30-3.  People are being asked to come along and write a love letter to Glossop.  This is a chance to think about our town and why we like it.

Remember the library reading challenge over the summer.

There will be no toast tomorrow as we will be busy with leaving events.

Have a lovely summer, stay safe and see most of you in September in our lovely new uniform.
