St Luke’s CE Primary School Newsletter


Dear Parents & Carers,

I cannot believe that we have almost reached the end of term and what a fabulous end of term it has been.

  • The chicks are still causing huge excitement and interest in living things. The amount of learning has been amazing.
  • The PTA are selling egg cups and raffle tickets. I cannot wait to see what decorations the children come up with.
  • Not only that the PTA ran a much enjoyed quiz on Friday. I feel so disappointed that I was not able to be there.  Not only was fun had £500 was raised.
  • The Year 5s are having a wonderful time in Whitby. They have been on a town trail, seen a seal and enjoyed each other’s company.
  • The children in Kites and Harriers put on an amazing production. I was blown away by the quality of their singing.  They all got into role and acted so well.  We are all very proud of them.
  • I am so proud of the touch rugby team who played on Monday, they embodied good sportsmanship. They realised that one of the smaller local schools did not have enough players so subbed in for them with no fuss.  They got through to the final which was a draw and instantly offered the win to the other team who had beaten them in the earlier round robin rounds.  They enjoyed representing school, played really well and showed everyone how to be competitive but sporting.  They are a true credit to the school and to you.

I said it was a fantastic end to the term.  Which will be rounded off with the Easter Service in church at about 9.15 on Friday.

The children have all been planning healthy school lunches and our lovely school cook Mrs Lomas has agreed to cook the meals they have planned instead of those planned by the catering team.  The first Thursday back after Easter we will be having Kites menu which is nuggets or meatballs with chips, peas and beans followed by apple crumble and custard.

Paper copies of the new dinner menu are coming home. I am also attaching an electronic version of the new menu. 

Whitfield Parish are organising an Easter peg hunt on Saturday.  Flyer attached.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter.  See you all back on Monday 17th April

Stay happy and healthy
