Girls' Maths Competition at the Marist School 

Holy Trinity were victorious once again in the Year 5 Marist Schools Annual Maths Competition this week.  Eleanor, Grace, Sophie and Sophie beat teams from 17 other schools by a very big margin (including many independent schools) to take the trophy.  An enormous well done to the girls for this fantastic achievement! 

Year 1 Design Valentine's Day Crafts

Year 3 Trip to Haslemere Museum 

Class 3 visited Haslemere Museum on Wednesday for an Egyptian Workshop.  They have their very own Egyptian mummy called Pa-er-abu.  The mummy dates back to 300BC (and you can see its toes poking out of the linen bandages!).  We learned all about the Egyptian beliefs in the afterlife and how a body can be mummified!  We even had the opportunity to mummify our own teddies.  We put an amulet in for protection, created a cartouche written in hieroglyphs and a death mask so it’s soul can be reunited with the owner.  
Did you know… the Egyptians didn’t think the brain was very important and it was fed to cats!
Here are some photos of our super trip!

Valentine's Day Cake Sale - in Aid of Muscular Dystrophy UK

Mrs Free will be selling lots of lovely cakes after school today to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK and her London Marathon run.  All donations welcome.  


Sponsored Run for Muscular Dystrophy UK

As you may know, Mrs Free is running the London Marathon in aid of Muscular Dystrophy UK and what better way to raise money for the cause than a sponsored run?  On Friday 28th February children will take part in a sponsored run on the school field.  A sponsorship form will come home in book bags today so the children have time to butter up friends and relatives over half term! Please return all forms and monies by Friday 6th March.  Many thanks for your support.

4 Women Charity Evening - Saturday 14th March

Towards the end of the newsletter you will find an advert for the next 4 Women Charity Evening organised by a group from Holy Trinity Church.  This time the event will be to raise money for local charities whilst raising awareness about Autism and ADHD.  Tickets are £15 including a delicious meal and are available in advance from the Church Office or by emailing

School Lunch Payments

Please do make sure that funds are available on ParentPay to pay for school lunches in advance. We have several accounts operating in arrears.  Please be aware that every text message sent to chase payment comes at a cost to the school adding up to a significant amount.  Where accounts are regularly in arrears the facility to have school lunches may be withdrawn.  


A reminder that, although we are not aware of any families travelling to affected areas over the half term break, we ask you to take full precautions in line with Government guidelines before returning to school after the holiday. If in doubt, please call 111 and let the school office know before returning.  Do not got to your doctor's surgery or hospital. 


Advice to those who have travelled recently

Public Health England has changed the advice for individuals who have travelled recently as follows:

Travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province

If you have travelled from Wuhan or Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days you should immediately:
•    stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
•    call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the area
Please follow this advice even if you do not have symptoms of the virus.


Travellers from other parts of China and other specified areas

This advice applies to travellers who have returned to the UK from the following areas:
•    Elsewhere in China
•    Thailand
•    Japan
•    Republic of Korea
•    Hong Kong
•    Taiwan

Encouraging good hygiene

As always, if you have symptoms of a cold or flu, then there are measures you can take to stop germs: 
•    always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
•    wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
•    avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
