Week Beginning Monday 9th September 2019
Welcome back to the new school year! We hope you all had a wonderful summer break and are now well rested.
It was great to see all of the children arriving back in school on Wednesday looking really smart in their uniforms. We hope they have had a brilliant start to the year and are settling well into their new classes. They certainly seem happy and engaged as we have walked around the school. A special welcome to our new reception starters, we hope they have enjoyed coming in for their school visits. These visits continue on Monday and Tuesday next week.
Please can we remind parents of children in Year 6 that Niora Amani from the admissions team at Croydon Council will be leading a secondary transfer meeting at 3.20 on the 12th September and will be able to talk you through the process of applying and answer any questions you may have.
If you are interested in swimming lessons for your pre-schoolers we currently have morning spaces on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays or afternoon slots on Thursdays. Please collect a form from the school office to sign up for this activity. If your child is in the Infants (Year 1/2) and would like to sign up to the Infant choir, please collect a form from the school office to register your interest. This club is free and takes place on a Monday from 3:15-4:15 and will recommence on the 16th September. Ocarina and Recorder club begins on the 19th of September and is open to all children from Year 3-6. Please collect a form to sign up for these clubs even if your child has participated previously.
The CSMA Junior Choir has been invited to perform at the Fairfield Halls to celebrate its re-opening. This concert will take place on Monday 14th October at 7pm and is open to those children in Year 5/6 who performed at the March concert in 2019 (Trinity School) because we will be repeating a very similar concert due to the month timeframe! Therefore, for this half term, junior choir is only open to the pupils that performed in the March 2019 Trinity concert. After October half term choir will be open to children in Years 3-6 as usual. This term, rehearsals will begin on the 17th September from 3:10 until 4:20.
Finally, we are participating in ALDI’s Kit for schools initiative which gives us the chance to win £20,000. When a member of our school community spends £30 in any Aldi store, they will receive a special team GB athlete sticker. If we manage to collect 300 stickers we will receive an exclusive sports kit and could win one of twenty £20,000 prizes! If you would like to help us with this challenge, all stickers must be handed into school by the 18th November. Thank you in anticipation of your support.
Have a wonderful weekend. See you on Monday.
