Dear Parents and Carers,
As we come to the end of our first month back at school, I would like to extend a big thank to all our wonderful staff for being amazing and living our value of friendship and teamwork this week. Holy Trinity is a very lucky school to have you all.
Parent Governor Vacancy
We have received two nominations for our Parent Governor vacancy and so parents will be asked to vote for a new Governor, with voting taking place between Monday 4th October and Monday 11th October.
This year we come together to celebrate Harvest Festival at Holy Trinity Church at 9:30am on Tuesday 12th October (YR, 2, 4, 6N) and Thursday 14th October (Y1, 3, 5, 6W). Please find below a list of items needed. These need to be long life goods rather than perishables so that they can be stored and distributed as needed.
We will be celebrating Black History Month in school through various projects in different areas of the curriculum. Focusing on a range of artists, inventors, scientists and writers from many different ethnic backgrounds. Educating our young people about differences, uniqueness and the value of all is a responsibility we feel very strongly and is central to our vision and Christian ethos.
We have noticed an increasing trend of children bringing in items from home (pop it toys, transfer cards etc). Please make sure these items stay at home.
Have a lovely weekend
