Year 5 Ravenous Readers
Here are this week's Ravenous Readers!
Year 6 Trip to Brookwood Military Cemetery
Year 6 are studying World War 1 at the moment and visited Brookwood Military Cemetery this week:
'On Tuesday 21st September we went on a trip to Brookwood Cemetery. We started off the day by looking at some war graves, then a man called Anthony shared some stories with us. At around 12.00 we ate lunch. After lunch we got split into two groups, one group was writing a poem, and the other was sanding headstones (which was very fun). Then we finished the day with one more story and we left. The best part of the day was when we went into the chapel and learnt about Americans and also when we were sanding headstones.'
Sophie - 6W
We still have places on our Art Club on a Thursday for Years 2 - 6.
Magpies are offering free taster sessions for Girls' Football (Y3 - Y6 on a Wednesday) and Multi Sports (Y1 and Y2 on Fridays). Please contact Mark Nisbet at Magpies on 07738 585507 to book on to a free session.
Please see here for a full list of all of our clubs, contacts and booking information.
Head Lice in School
Now you might have thought that a couple of lengthy lockdowns would have brought an end to this lousy hair inhabitant! But no - they march on! Please check your children's hair regularly with conditioner and a nit comb to make sure nothing is hiding there. You are very unlikely to see hair lice without using the combing method but a quick inspection behind the ears and around the nape might reveal nits (eggs attached near to the root of the hair).
Please do not park in the Village Hall (pre school) car park when dropping off and picking up children from school.
Many thanks for your co-operation with this.
Ascot Family Raceday - Fireworks Spectacular!
This fantastic Family Raceday on Saturday 30th October is an annual family favourite and a schools fundraiser too! If you're buying tickets, we would be very grateful when booking online if you could you use promotional code HTSCHOOL. Ascot Racecourse will then donate a proportion of the ticket price to Holy Trinity School. Don't forget under 18s go free to racedays. Thank you very much!
Thanks for all your items for the Bags2School, we raised a fantastic £139.80.
AGM & PTA Meeting
It was great to meet the new Reps at the meeting and run through our events for the year.
Despite everything that happened over the last year, in terms of fundraising we had an incredible year. Although we couldn’t have “normal” Xmas and Summer fairs, we still raised a staggering £20,000. Thank you to all parents for their support last year.
We are thrilled to announce that Birgitte De Nul has taken on the role of Secretary, thank you to Martina Fleming for all her help over the last couple of years.
In other news, at the AGM, Carol Brown and Alison Shukla gave their notice to step down as Chair from September 2022, so these roles will need to be filled for the start of the next school year. If you would like more information on what the role involves, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The school have confirmed they would like us to continue to focus our Fundraising for the new KS2 Play Area as the current one is rotting. The PTA will also continue to fund the online subscriptions such as Bug Club & Mathletics.
We are putting together a team of helpers to gather prizes for our auctions and raffles which are held for our Christmas and Summer Fairs. We desperately need some volunteers as the more helpers we have, the less work there is for each person to do – team work makes the dream work!! So please if you can offer some time, contact email@example.com
