Holy Trinity Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Congratulations to Leopard Class for their very topical and highly entertaining assembly last Friday. You certainly made us think and smile.

Well done to Lili, Elliot, Alexander L, Alexander P and Zoe for representing Holy Trinity at the Hampton School Year 5 maths challenge event. Their enthusiasm and concentration was an inspiration.

Thank you so much for all your parent questionnaires; I’ll do the draw for the M&S voucher towards the end of this week. I’ve been reading the responses as they have come in, over half term I’ll put the whole graphs together and a response to some of your queries.

Best wishes,Penny Cox 

Important information:Leavers. We know that we have a number of families leaving because they are moving house. If you know that your child will be leaving the school at the end of this academic year (or before), please could you let us know asap. You can email me or the office. We will need to know the date of leaving, name and address of your child’s new school and your new address (if applicable). Thank you.

Toilets. If you use the school toilets please do not flush anything other than toilet paper down them. We are having problems with sanitary products and even nappies being flushed down the toilets. It is costing the school a considerable amount of money to unblock our drains.

School meals. Please make sure that your payments are up to date for this half term. 

Chaplain’s Corner: Seeing the final Avengers film “Endgame” with some friends last week got me thinking about goodbyes. Goodbyes can be hard, but I've learnt that remembering happy times and what others have taught us is vital in dealing with our sadness when someone is gone. At Jesus's Accession (his earthly goodbye to his disciples) he promises not leave his followers alone but give them the gift of the Holy Spirit. Jesus then delivers on this promise at Pentecost and sends the person of the Holy Spirit to; help guide, comfort and inspire all those that follow Jesus then and now today too!"
