Unfortunately, rain is forecast for our whole school beach day tomorrow. I’m sure you would agree with me that to cancel the visit, due to rain, would be very disappointing for our children. I have therefore rescheduled our whole school beach day and it will now take place on Wednesday 18th July. The arrangements for the day will remain the same as outlined in the information letter sent out to parents last week. I do hope you will be able to join us for a fun day in the sunshine – don’t forget your spade and bucket!
Mr L J Duncan
Our Reception children spent time with their Year 6 buddies for the afternoon. It was a time to say goodbye to our Year 6 buddies and to thank them for all their hard work this year in helping the reception children to settle in school. The children played fun games together and enjoyed an ice cream treat. I’m sure the reception children will always remember their special buddy.
Our open parents day was a great opportunity for parents and grandparents to spend time with their children celebrating all their work they have done in school this year. Thank you for all the positive comments made regarding this day and pleased you found this to be a very worthwhile event. We hope to continue this next year.
Our year 6 children joined other year 6 children, across East Durham, in celebrating a Catholic arched mass at Our Lady of the Rosary church in Peterlee. The mass was to celebrate the transition from Primary to Secondary phase and the theme was all about being grateful. Our children did a fabulous liturgical dance and shared with other children across the County in prayer and reflection. Thank you to Father Jackson and Ms Boylen for all their efforts in arranging the day.
The community Ceilidh event organised by our Friends of the School was a real success. The night was filled with lot of fun, conversation, music and dance. Money raised will go to support the children in school. A thank you to our Friends of the School for all their efforts.
Our Year 6 children joined a number of schools from the north east to compete in a sandcastle challenge at South Shields beach. The theme of the day was Star Struck Cosmos (all about planets and the solar system). It was a fantastic day!
Thank you to all parents who attended our Sports Day this year at the Seaham Harbour Cricket Club. It was a fantastic day and the children thoroughly enjoyed all the competitive races. Well done to all mams and dads who raced on the day too. Thank you to our ‘Friends of the School’ for raising money through their raffle. I’m sure all the children, staff and parents will have a good nights sleep tonight after all of the days activities.
On Saturday 23rd June we held our summer fayre for the whole school community. What a fabulous day it was! The sun was shining, the children were having fun and lots of money was raised for the school. Thank you to everyone who helped in organising the event and to everyone who attended. It was great to catch up with so many parents and local residents and to be able to share in the many fun stalls and rides on the day. The school raised a fantastic total of £2600 which will be used to enrich the children’s learning in school.
