Dear Parents and Guardians
This Friday is Remembrance Day. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month marks the moment the guns fell silent on the Western Front after the bloodshed of World War I in 1918. Over the past century, this moment has been adopted across the globe as a time to remember those who served and sacrificed in all wars and conflicts. This Remembrance Day, let us join the world in honouring those who’ve served and sacrificed. Throughout the Commonwealth and beyond, we remember all who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Let us help to keep their legacy alive by attending a service, reflecting in silence, wearing a poppy, or supporting our veteran community. Our Year 6 Communications Team will lead us in a prayer service on Friday morning. LEST WE FORGET.
Our first Fathering Group event – Paper Planes and Pizza is happening tomorrow in the hall from 5:30pm until 7:00pm. We have 32 dads and their children attending so far and we look forward to many more coming along. We hope to see you there!
Our Annual Community Meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday 16 November from 6.00pm. This is an opportunity to hear reports on the progress of the school in the past twelve months and to spend time together celebrating a successful school year and strong, trusting and collaborative partnerships. All adult community members are invited and welcome to attend.
National Recycling Week, established by Planet Ark in 1996, is held every year during the second week of November (7th to 13th of November 2022). This year, National Recycling Week explores the idea that Waste isn’t Waste until it’s Wasted. During the week, we are encouraging our community to think about waste as a resource; reconsider how we buy, use and dispose of materials to keep them in circulation for as long as possible; and think about ways we can avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle for a better future.
‘Use less, do more’.
There are ‘good things’ happening in our school due to the efforts of so many people; seek to be one of those people in the coming week!
