Week Beginning 29th September 2014

Monday 29th September 2014 Firstly, a huge congratulations to our tag rugby team, who came 2nd in the finals of the Croydon Schools Tag Rugby Festival 2014. Some parents have kindly pointed out that there are some photographs of our children on the Croydon Advertiser website. We have also had several children who won rosettes at the Horticulture and Cookery Show at Woodcote Green Nurseries last weekend. Congratulations to them, please look out for further details of this in our monthly newsletter.


After school on Monday, our popular film club will be showing ‘Rio 2’ to the children, which is a super film for all ages. If your child is attending they will have already purchased a ticket which includes their refreshment. They will be meeting at 3pm in the school hall. If your child is in one of the Reception classes there will need to be an adult present to look after them. Please collect your children promptly at 5pm, thank you.


On Tuesday morning Mrs Meadows and our two eldest healthy schools representatives have been invited to attend The Croydon Healthy Schools Awards Ceremony at The Selsdon Park Hotel. This is to celebrate that Croydon has been awarded ‘Flagship Food Borough’ status and that we have a Bronze status award for healthy schools.


If your child is in Year3-6 and would like to take part in the Croydon cross country finals they need to participate in our trials at school. These will take place with Mr Blundell on Thursday 2nd October at lunch time in school. The children can wear their usual PE kits but may need to bring trainers into school if they don t already have any here. The fastest 5 children will then go on to represent The Hayes in the finals.


On Thursday it is our school census. We would like to encourage as many children as possible to have school dinners on this day, as it will impact on the funding that we receive for the rest of the year. There is a change to the menu on this day, the options will be sausages/ veggie sausages, mashed potato/pasta, cabbage, peas or baked beans, gravy, seasonal salad, bread, chocolate sponge & chocolate sauce and fresh fruit platter.


On Friday 3rd October Class 12 will be leading our class assembly at 10.15am. If your child is in Mr Raffield’s class and you wish to join us for this event please come to the school hall at 10.15am. We have added an additional assembly this term so would like to give our Class 10 parents advance notice of this date.


We are delighted that Class 10 have offered to lead our whole school harvest assembly on Monday 13th October 2014 at 9.15am. Please note the earlier time for this class assembly. Linked to this upcoming harvest assembly, during the week of 6th- 9th October we will be collecting any donations that you may like to send in (non-perishable food items, such as ready meals for toddlers, tinned foods, dried goods or toiletry supplies), all of which we will donate to The Purley Food Hub, which is a local food bank set up by Purley and Kenley Churches Together to provide food for people in crisis. Unfortunately, due to numbers we are unable to invite parents to attend this event, except the Class 10 parents who will be watching their children’s assembly.


Just an apology that the original times advertised for the ‘Fiddle Fiesta’ club were incorrect. The club will run on Friday lunchtimes with Mrs Aldren between 12.10-12.40pm, the children will not miss any lesson time at all. Thank you once again for your on-going support.
