St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents,

I hope you have all been enjoying walk to school week.  We have had some lovely cold mornings and sunny afternoons.

Last Friday the children in Y5&6 enjoyed a choir workshop.  They were amazing.  The choral teachers are setting up a free Glossop Choir at Glossopdale school.  There is a singing day on Sunday 13th November 11.30-4 and then the choir will meet regularly on a Tuesday 5-6.30.  The children can attend the weekly choir even if they cannot make the choir day.  There is a leaflet attached with more details.

After half term NATURE CLUB is moving to a Thursday because a lot of school sporting events Mr Holt is part of are on a Monday.

We have had a request from Educade a charity working in Sierra Leone that we support to send some Christmas Shoe Boxes for the orphans they work with.  We asked Pupil Parliament and they would like us to support this initiative.  Each shoe box needs in it:

  • Soap ● Toothbrush ● Pens/ Pencils ● Notebook ● Hair comb (not brush) ● Water bottle ● A gift of your choice (under £5).

Please see the attached leaflet for more details.  You don’t have to do a box each you can club together and do a box.  Please return the boxes to school by Monday 7th November.

If you have a child in Y6 remember their application for a secondary school needs to be done by 31st October.

Have any of you managed to set up a smile Amazon account for St Luke’s PTA?  How easy was it?

The children finish today 20th October for half term.  They restart on Monday 31st October.

Stay happy and healthy
