St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Thank you to the PTA for a lovely scoot and skate last Friday. A good time was had by all.

On Saturday I was privileged to represent St Luke’s at the Grand Opening of Glossopdale School. What a magnificent building. The learning spaces have been so well thought out. It will provide the children of our community with a very positive learning environment. We were shown round the building by some delightful, enthusiastic young people who were articulating what the building meant to them and their learning. I am so pleased Glossopdale now has state of the art facilities.

It is our harvest festival tomorrow. We will register quickly in school and then walk over to church. We are asking the children to bring in donations of food for Glossop Foodbank. You are very welcome to join us in church for about 9.15/20.

As it is harvest festival there will be no Friday toast.

The PTA have sent out a consultation about the possibility of a bike shelter. Please return your slip by 12th October to let us know what you think.

You should also have had a letter about the PTA Pizza and Prosecco do on Thursday 11th at the Cricket Club. This is a free event but they need to know numbers so if you would like to attend please return your slip as soon as possible by 8th October at the latest.

On Thursday 18th October we have a maths specialist coming into school to talk about how you can support your child at home. He is going to run the workshop twice at 2.45 and at 5pm. During the workshop he will be introducing a new free resource to use at home. More details to follow.

The children in Harriers have asked me to remind you that we can recycle batteries and branded printer cartridges in school. The recycling point is in the entrance hall along with a donation box for Glossop food bank.

Sunday is Glossop Jog day. We ask the children and parents taking part to register at the school’s table by 10.50 ready to start the run at 11.00. The PTA are providing a refreshment stall so do come along and support the runners.

The Year 6s are off to Whitehall on Wednesday for a 3 day outward bound residential. We are all hoping for good weather for them.
