St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a good week last week, the weather was fantastic and the children have been telling me all about their adventures it sounds as if you all made the most of it. The children have come back ready to learn it is great to see them all.

We have had to change the date of Eagle’s Assembly to Friday 22nd March because a number of them are involved in other things on the original date. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Merlins will be leading our Assembly this Friday 1st March and Kestrels on 15th March do join us if you can.

Tonight three of our year 6 pupils are representing us at the High Peak School Sports Awards where they will be receiving our Gold Games Mark Award. We are very proud of the quantity and quality of physical activity we offer to the children.

On Monday the Kites and Harriers are meeting at the station and going to the Manchester Police Museum. I know they have been very excited about their preparation for a trial!

World book day is almost here it is on Thursday 7th March. The children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite character from a book. Please don’t feel you have to go out and spend money on this. Talking of books following the success of the Book Fair last year we have booked it again. We will be opening the book fair on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th March after school.

As part of our work on character virtues we are exploring service. The children in Harriers and Kites have decided they would like to run a bake sale and second hand toy stall on Thursday 7th March to raise money for two local charities Reuben’s Retreat and Mummy’s Star. If you would like to support their endeavours, please send your child in with a small amount of money on the 7th so they can visit the stalls.

On Monday 11th March at 6pm we are holding a meeting for the parents of the children going to Whitby to finalise arrangements and answer any questions.

The choir concert with Kinder Choir is almost here, excitement is building. The children need to meet us at the Octagon Pavilion Gardens Buxton at 9.45 on Sunday 10th March with a packed lunch. I hope you have managed to get your tickets for the concert at 3pm.
