I want to start today with the biggest thank you to staff and children for making St Chad’s Day last Monday such a wonderful success. There were so many brilliant activities going on throughout the day and Bishop Michael (Bishop of Lichfield) was so impressed with work that he saw. On Tuesday afternoon we exhibited all of the wonderful work that was produced and the parents who came to see the exhibition were really impressed with everything that was achieved. Pictures of some of the work from St Chad’s Day is currently on our website homepage. You will soon be able to see the well that was built by our school ranger and a group of children once the cover is taken off. This is near the front entrance to the school by the pedestrian gate and is dedicated to St Chad who built his own well in the 5th century so that he had a quiet place to pray. In addition, the theme of the day was very much ‘Following Christ in the footsteps of St Chad’. Next Monday, our Head Boy, Head Girl, House Captains and Reverend Sharon are going to visit Bishop Michael in Lichfield to take him some photographs and videos of the day. We will also be going on a tour of Lichfield cathedral before tea with the Bishop. On Tuesday, we will be enjoying a musical afternoon with a concert from our Year 3 K2M pupils, our choir and children taking individual/ group brass, string and woodwind lessons with Entrust peripatetic teachers. Parents of these children should make sure they have purchased their tickets– and money taken for tickets will be invested in continuing music provision for our school. Next Friday we will be holding a Mother’s Day service at 2:30pm, when the choir, Head Boy, Head Girl and House Captains will be leading the service and family members of those children are welcome to join us. What a wonderful array of things are going on in our school!
