St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

Thank you to everyone who helped with the disco I understand it was a huge success. I was sorry to miss it but I was on a course in South Normanton and couldn’t get back in time. As ever these events only happen because of the huge amount of work the PTA put in.  Talking of PTA events the next one is the Easter Raffle.  After half term your child will bring home some raffle tickets to try to sell.  This has always been a big fundraiser for the school so thank you for your continued support.

The children have taken part in a number of sporting events, the girls enjoyed the football league and the indoor athletics squad had a great time on Wednesday. These events are some of the ways we are encouraging all our children to be active.  Our aim is for every child to find a sport or physical activity which they enjoy and that they will continue into adulthood.

On Friday we finish for half term and return on Monday 26th February.  World Book Day is on Thursday 1st you should have received a letter about the plans we have for this day.

Thursday 1st March is also Kite’s Lunch day, I am looking forward to finding out what they have got planned for us.

Tomorrow Friday 16th Osprey’s will be leading our assembly and on Friday 2nd Kestrels.  Do join us if you can.

Class Photo day is on Monday 5th March.
