We are supporting the NSPCC Number Day 2018!

nspcc number day

This Friday we will be taking part in the NSPCC Number Day.

The children will be allowed to come into school wearing their own clothes – as long as they have a number on them. They will be asked to give a donation. The proceeds will go directly to NSPCC. They will also take part in a variety of number activities.

During assembly this morning, we spoke about the vital work of the NSPCC and discussed how we can show our support to them. Take a look at the link below to see what we will do to help.

An outstanding performance at The Peace Proms!!!

I could not think of a better way of spending my Saturday than with a group of such special, hard- working and dedicated people; the children and staff of St Columba choir were absolutely amazing.

I would like to thank our children; their outstanding performance was the product of hours of practice and commitment.

Thank you to parents for supporting their children in getting to and from the Arena.

A massive thank you to Mrs Walton and Mrs Lewis for organising the event and giving up so much of their own personal time.

I honestly could not be any prouder of you all!

Children leading Collective Worship

I have been getting so much support from the children during our weekly Collective Worship assembly this week.

Philip, aged 9, often plays the piano while we sing our hymns, and has now been asked to play the organ each week at St Columba Church; what an achievement!

Children from Year 5 led some of the collective worship; they read from the Gospel, they acted and they even taught us a new song. The theme of the assembly was, ‘Listen To God’.

We talked about what God would like us to hear from Him. We decided that he would want us to love each other, just as he loves each and every one of us!  We know that we are all unique to God and that we should love what makes us unique.

We read the book below and decided that we are all unique and that we should praise and thank God for creating us and our families in this way.

Welcome back and happy new year!

It really is so good to be back!

The children have all arrived back in school today, with lovely, bright, excited faces. They seem to be so glad to be back to see their friends and teachers and to start the new year with a renewed energy.

We are really looking forward to the challenges and celebrations of 2018.

The first celebration will be on Saturday 27th January when we will, once again, take part in ‘The Peace Proms’ at the Echo Arena- we can’t wait!

We are determined to continue to work hard at our attendance record, and ask for your support and cooperation in this.

As you will be aware, it is freezing!!! Please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for this bitter weather.

Our free breakfast club is open as normal .

Once again, happy new year, we wish you lots of love, health, peace and happiness.

Welcome back and happy new year!
