St Luke’s Newsletter


Dear All,

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for the reading extravaganza yesterday there was a lovely buzz around school. I know some people weren’t able to make it so we will open the book fair again during the Easter Tea and just after school on Friday.

The last week has been a very cultural week with not only literature but also Eagles attending a concert by The Halle in Manchester and Merlins watching a live broadcast of Twelfth Night performed by The Royal Shakespeare Company. Add into the mix a lunchtime art club run by Glossopdale students and we have nearly all the Arts covered.

Tomorrow is the very exciting PTA Easter Raffle and Tea – I hope I win this year! From 2pm you are invited to join us for a drink and some cake, during the afternoon the raffle will be drawn. The children come into the hall in classes and have their drink and cake on the stage whilst you get to sit around the tables. We then all assemble for the raffle. The cost of the event is £2 for adults and £1 for children. I do hope lots of you can join us.

Next week is another busy week with:

• Kites and Harriers production on Monday at 6pm (please can the children be back at school between 5.30-5.40) and on Tuesday at 2pm.
• Parents evenings on Tuesday and Wednesday if you haven’t asked for an appointment yet please contact the office.
• Sports Relief on Wednesday with all the school taking part in sporting activities. I know we have been asking for money for a number of things recently, sorry, but if you would like to send a donation in we will be collecting for the good work sports Relief does.
• Thursday 22nd is our Easter Service in church at a little after 9am, well as soon as we can walk over there. We would love you to join us.
• Thursday is also the parents meeting for Whitby at 6pm.
• The children finish for Easter on Thursday 22nd, the staff have training on the Friday. We return on Monday 9th April.

With all this going on there will be no school led clubs next week, these will resume on Monday 16th April.

Whitfield Parish annual Easter Peg Hunt. It’s in Howard Park on Saturday 24th March from 3 to 5pm. They would love you to come with your children, grandchildren or indeed any children at all. Children find their pegs in the park in exchange for eggs. They will be serving hot and cold drinks as well.
