We were so proud to be selected as one of the 12 schools in the whole of Merseyside to take part in the ‘Mini Police’ initiative.
This involves a group of specially selected Year 5 and 6 children ( they had to apply and have interviews).
The initiative started with the children having a wonderful visit to the headquarters.
We cannot thank Merseyside police enough for giving our children such a thrilling, one in a life time experience.
The theme this week is nurturing our children, in order that they can grow to be the best that they can be.
We read a story, simply called, ‘The Dot’.
This story encourages us to make our mark on the world.
When we arrived at school this morning, we were absolutely devastated to see that our beautiful Dove Cottage had been vandalised over the weekend. The windows have been smashed and the work that our children have done has been destroyed!
Dove cottage was created as an oasis of calm, quiet reflection for our children. It is used to tell stories, to write prayers and to spend quality time with friends. Unfortunately today we have not been able to do that.
Furthermore, due to a very tight budget, it will take a while for us to restore it.
Please, can I ask our families to remain vigilant, and report any suspicious behaviour to the police.
We are proud of our school and our environment and we work hard to keep it that way.
The theme of this week is ACHIEVEMENT!
During our whole school collective worship we discussed how we can achieve.
Our school vision is Tapping into Talents, Daring to Dream, Breaking down Barriers, therefore today we read the Parable of the Talents and thought about what Jesus wants us to do with the special gifts and talents that he has given each of us.
The children said that they would:
‘ Work hard.’
‘Not hide away their talents.’
We have a school bursting with talent and we will all work hard to support each other in being the best we can be.
