St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

Congratulations to our Girls and Boys football teams who have both shown great sportsmanship in the tournaments they have been part of.

Year 6 were a credit to you and the school when they went out to their online safety course on Monday. They received lots of compliments about their behaviour from other school’s staff and the coach driver.

We have some very exciting events coming up which we hope you will be able to join us at. The first one is tomorrow (Friday 27th September) when we will have our sculpture park ready. We are opening it to the public from 2.30 – 4.00 in other words we would love to share it with you so do come and have a guided tour around the sculptures. The children are very excited to show off the work they have done.

On Tuesday 1st October it is the Online Safety Training at New Mills Secondary School at 6.15. The trainer is excellent, I have always come away from her courses knowing so much more about how to keep children safe on line and feeling able to protect them. I cannot recommend this course enough.

Thursday 3rd October at 2pm is our Harvest Festival in church. This is a service the children lead where we say thank you for all the good things in our lives, especially food. It is always lovely when you are able to join us for our church services. We will be collecting for Glossop Foodbank this year. They are especially in need of: UHT Milk, tinned peas, tinned carrots, rice in 1KG bags or microwaveable for individuals, tinned fruit, tinned custard, tinned rice pudding, tinned meat like ham or corned beef, cereal, tinned pulses like kidney beans, biscuits and soap but any donation will be much appreciated.

Thursday 3rd October is the PTA AGM, 7pm at the Cricket Club. This should not be a long meeting but it is so important. Please try to attend. All parents are members of the PTA and your opinion is important.

Sunday 6th October is the Glossop Jog. I am so pleased with the number of children who have signed up to take part in this event. If your child still hasn’t signed up there is still time!
