Dear Parents and Carers 23/09/01
This year we are celebrating Harvest by supporting the work of Richmond Foodbank. We will be collecting non-perishables to be distributed throughout the Borough to help those in need of support. The items they need every week are: canned meat (such as stews) and fish, long life fruit juice and milk, crisps, chocolates and cleaning materials such as washing up liquid, cleaning sprays, bleach etc.
Year 3 will be leading our Harvest Thanksgiving on Friday 1st October, so we would be grateful if you could send your donations in on, or before, that day. Parents of year 3 children are welcome to attend the Harvest Thanksgiving at 9.15am in the hall.
Golden Lock and fitness day
Well done to all of you who managed to leave your cars at home yesterday and to those children who took part in Mr Callaghan’s fitness challenges. Luluah from Leopard Class was the winner of the Golden Lock competition.
Bikes and scooters
It is so lovely to see so many of you walking, scooting and cycling to school. Can I please remind you however that bikes and scooters should not be used whilst on the school site. We have had a few parents who have been crashed into recently.
Maths at Hampton school
Louis, Zac, Aisha and Sophie represented Holy Trinity at the Year 5 Hampton School Maths Wizard competition. They competed against many local schools and thoroughly enjoyed the challenging questions that were posed. They all agreed it had been a fantastic experience and they certainly made us proud.
Holy Trinity Dad’s Football Team
We are looking for new players to join our Dad’s football team. We play competitive, friendly and social 11 a side matches against other schools throughout the year. For further information contact John Wade at
Year 6 families
The Admission to Richmond’s Secondary Schools guide and the Richmond schools brochure are available on the Richmond Council website. These have been revised, and provide detailed information on the application process and the borough schools. If any of you have questions and concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for support. They are currently operating a call-back only service and cannot be reached by telephone.
As some of you will be considering independent schools for your child’s next phase of education you are likely to be asked for a report to be provided from Holy Trinity. Further to the letter sent out last term, there will be a charge for your child’s class teacher to prepare a standardised report which can then be sent to whichever school asks for one.
