St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Congratulations to all the children taking part in Bikeability everyone worked very hard and did their best.

On Tuesday I had the privilege of attending the Induction of The Revd Toby May the new vicar of Whitfield Parish which is made up of St James’ and St Luke’s Churches and schools. I was able to formally welcome him and his wife Helen on behalf of the school. They are very excited to be starting their lives in the parish and we are excited to be able to work with them. It is a time for hellos and goodbyes in the Parish as on Friday we say goodbye to Dan who has finished his training as a curate and is about to take up his first post as Vicar of St Marks Church Haydock. We thank him for all the work he has done for school and wish him and his family well for the future. St Marks are lucky to get him.

Yesterday we had a fantastic morning being entertained by Image Musical Theatre’s production of Robin Hood. The children were mesmerised, enchanted, amused and surprised, in other words it was everything a theatre production should be. Thank you for making this possible, the regular contributions the PTA put into school fund helped to pay for this.

Good luck to the girls playing football this afternoon we hope they have fun.

Remember it is the phonics workshop after school today at 3.30 and the PTA AGM at 6.45 for 7 at the Cricket Club tonight.

Tomorrow weather permitting is scoot and skate night. This is an opportunity for the children to ride their scooters or skate in the playground for an hour after school. We ask that everyone riding wears a helmet. The forecast is for showers so we hope it can go ahead but a final decision will be made tomorrow afternoon.

I have a rather strange request – do any of you have a 2 wheeled bike you no longer need, suitable for children aged 4-5 which you would be willing to donate to school? The younger children are getting really good on the co-operative bikes and we would like to give them the opportunity to try and ride 2 wheeled bikes.

Swimming starts next Thursday 27th September for Y2 and Y6. The Ospreys (Y2) meet at the pool at 8.45.

Glossop Jog is on 7th October if your child wants to take part please return the slip or let the office know.
