Week beginning 16th March 2020

What a fun packed day we have had raising money for Sports Relief! The children have all participated in many sporting activities and challenged some of the staff in various sporting activities. We thank Miss Smith and Miss Moll for the work they put into organising today’s events and the support of the Croydon Schools Sports Partnership (CSSP). We look forward to confirming how much we have raised for charity with you asap!

Here is what is coming up next week…

On Monday, the children in the junior CSMA choir will be attending their final rehearsal at The Fairfield Halls in the morning prior to the evening concert. Parents of children involved will have received a letter from Miss Slade with final arrangements. The children have been practicing really hard for this event and we are sure they will put on a fantastic show. If you have bought tickets we are sure you will have a great evening! Please collect a concert programme from Mrs Olley in the evening when you drop off your child.

Unfortunately, we are having to cancel our planned Mother’s Day breakfast on Monday 23rd March. Many of the church volunteers who help run this event are in their 70s and 80s and are opting to avoid large gatherings of people at this time. We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause. We hope to have a special breakfast for our lovely mums in the near future.

On Tuesday, it is the final rehearsal in the morning for the Infant CSMA children at The Fairfield Halls ahead of their evening concert.  Parents of children involved will also have received a letter with final arrangements. They have also been practicing really hard and will no doubt be putting on a fantastic show. We wish all our performers good luck!

Book Fair will be taking place in the ICT suite on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after school and on Thursday we are welcoming an inspiring visiting author called Paul Geraghty who will lead workshops for all children to talk to them about how he creates his stories and illustrations, hopefully inspiring a love of writing!  Paul has written many children’s books including, The Hunter, Slobcat, Solo and The Hoppamelean. He will be selling a selection of his books for £7.00 which he is happy to sign after school in the ICT suite. Please come in via the office.

PTA News and Events
*The PTA mother’s day gift room is taking place next week. If your child would like to choose and wrap up a present for their mum or another special person in their lives, tickets for £3 can be purchased from the PTA events page or paid on the door. This will take place at lunchtimes in the breakfast club room from Tuesday to Friday.

*If your child would still like to audition for Hayes Got Talent event, there is still time to collect a application from the office. Closing date is Friday 20th.

*Fireworks: it is regret that the PTA have decided to postpone this event on Friday 20th March. This is because of the uncertainty around Health and Safety of the event. There is no guarantee that we will have enough volunteers and safety marshalls due to some families wishing to avoid large public events. Additionally, at this time it is difficult to estimate quantities of refreshments that would be required. There will be the opportunity to request a refund and the PTA will be in contact with you shortly. I know they are keen to reschedule this date.

Have a great weekend.
