Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
What a busy week this week will be.It was a fitting beginning that the week started with Pentecost Sunday and that this was the final week of preparation for the children who will be confirmed tonight.
A huge thank you to the parents who led the preparation lessons and to Mrs Simmons and Father Michael for the huge effort that they put in to co-ordinate the programme.Today Bishop Colin has come to our school to meet with the pupils and to hold a practice for tonight’s Confirmation celebration.
Wednesday and Thursday see us holding our initial interviews to support the written reports on National Standards, send out last week.I encourage all parents to attend these interviews, as sometimes more information can be gained from an interview rather than a written report due to the ability to engage in dialogue.It also shows the pupils that school and home are working together to achieve great things for them.
I have also timetabled an opportunity for the parents of Year Six pupils to meet with me and discuss our
programmes for the 2013 senior school.This is a great opportunity for me to highlight the great things gong on in the senior school and the range of opportunities that we offer our Year Seven and Eight
pupils, and to hear any thoughts and suggestions that you may have.
