St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

We have had an exciting week. The children loved the Fisherman’s Tale thank you so much to Whitfield Parish for organising this and inviting us to attend. The girl’s Kwick Cricket High Peak Final was on Thursday and the girls won!! This means they have progressed to the Derbyshire Final. Congratulations to them. The boy’s final has been cancelled for tomorrow due to a wet pitch! This will now take place on 27th June.

The cake sale was a huge success thank you for all your support with this. The children who organised it did a great job and should feel very proud of themselves.

The Y4s are attending a workshop with Glossop Music Festival today and Y6 are tomorrow. I am sure they will have a great time.

Remember tomorrow 14th June is Bag 2 School day, please bring in your old textiles. It is also non uniform day for bottles. As if that was not enough excitement for one day it is also Eagle’s Assembly.

On Tuesday 18th June all of Reception and Year 1 are going on a very exciting trip to The Bridgewater Hall to see the Halle Orchestra. This is an amazing opportunity for the children to experience world class live music and we are all very excited about it. If you have not yet sent your slip back please do so as soon as possible I would hate your child to miss out on this.

Change of date The Osprey’s Assembly is now on Thursday 20th June at 2.30. The reason we have had to change it is because we have been offered a Maths Challenge Day on the Friday.

On Friday 21st June the children will be taking part in a Maths and teambuilding challenge day run by The Happy Puzzle Company. I have worked with this company before and their games and puzzles are amazing. After school they will be running a shop for you if you would like to purchase any of their games and puzzles.

Remember the PTA Fashion Show is on Friday 21st June, tickets available from the school office or Blossom. The PTA have asked me to circulate the message below:

The summer fun day will soon be here (5th July) which is always a great event, especially as next year’s parents and children are also invited. To get things started, we need to have a meeting to discuss ideas/plans and start putting together what help we need both before and on the day. If you would like to be involved in the planning we will be meeting on Wednesday 19th June (venue and time to be confirmed but it will be after 7pm). If you can’t attend but would like to help please let me know”.

There will be no ICT club on Monday 17th June as Mr Rank is not available.
