Week beginning 25th June
We have had another busy week at The Hayes which started with Father’s Day breakfast. It was great to see so many dads attend with their children to share the most important part of the day. Thank you for coming and many thanks to The Hayes Church again (and staff) who provided the food and helped during the morning. We have a great community.
You may have noticed The Hayes Twitter pages busy this week with Tweets about the DSMF (Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation). As you know, we were lucky to have Dan’s mum, Fiona Spargo Mabbs and three of her Ambassadors come into school and deliver workshops to Y5, 6 and run a parent workshop on ‘drugs and alcohol- choices’. I am sure that you will agree, she is an incredibly inspirational woman. Many thanks to those of you who attended the workshop and who raised some money for the DSMF charity. You will see this fundraising pot on the playground (after school) and at forthcoming events – Music is Magic and the Y6 musical. We thank you in advance.
Some of our junior sportspeople competed with determination, passion and skill in the Croydon athletics competition last week, with some making it through to the semi-finals and finals on Wednesday (2nd, 5th and 6th places). Congratulations to all who took part, we are very proud of you- you are all stars. Thank you to all of the staff and parents that supported this event. Please check out the Twitter page for photos!
Two pupils from Y6 received Good Citizenship Awards on Tuesday evening for going above and beyond at school and home to support our community, children and family. These children are true citizens and ambassadors- a massive well done to these two amazing young people (again can be seen on our Twitter page).
Wednesday night was the first of our Music Is Magic concerts, this for our instrumentalists. An amazing evening full of incredibly talented musicians who could easily be students at the Royal Academy of Music- seriously impressive. Another very proud moment. Thank you to our parents who supported this event and to the teachers who have been able to get our children to a high level of skill.
On Thursday, Class 9 went to Warlingham High School for a Science workshop- the children were a credit to our school and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Warlingham High! Yoga classes took place for the whole school to finalise our Healthy Schools Week over Thursday and Friday, there was a lot of relaxation going on. On Friday we had the school photographer in to take pictures of the classes and groups; we look forward to seeing them.
