Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Welcome back for the 2015 school year.
We started the new year for the pupils yesterday with a brief but enthusiastic assembly.
It was pleasing to see all the faces of the pupils (both returning and new) smiling back at me. We welcomed eleven new pupils to the school for day one and we have another four new entrants joining us during term one, this is great for the school.
Yesterday I visited all of the classrooms and spoke to a number of the pupils and everyone I spoke to had enjoyed a great holiday and was pleased to be back at school and keen to begin the school year.
We have enjoyed a summer that has been great for holidays but not so good for farmers. The warm weather over the break has enabled a number of projects to be carried out at school: new planting in the garden, our brightly painted and patched seats, the new path (by the lower car park) and the mending of some of the paving. Thank you to all of the people who worked so hard over the holidays to complete these tasks.
During the term there are a number of events and activities on, so please remember to read this section of newsletter.
I would just like to conclude this newsletter with the following quote from Henry Ford: "Coming
together is a beginning; keep together is progress; working together is success".
Have a great year.
