18 September, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

St John Fisher Open Morning: Saturday 14th October, 9:00-12:00 at lower school on Maidstone Road. There will also be tours of the school on Tuesday 12th, 19th & 26th September and 3rd, 10th & 17th October.

Talk for Year 6 parents: Mrs Lennon, head of St John Fisher will be visiting us to talk to Year 6 parents on Thursday 28th September at 2pm. Please do come along and meet her and listen to what she has to say.

Book Club: Our new Scholastic Book Club is up and running! Go to http://schools.scholastic.co.uk/st-thomas-of-canterbury-rc-me8 to browse the latest books and order online. For every £1 you spend on this month’s Book Club, our school will earn 25p in Scholastic Rewards. All proceeds go towards new books for the library so that your children can have a wide and up to date range of books in good condition to choose from. Please place your order online by September 29th, 2017.

Alternatively you can hand in your order at school by Tuesday 26th September with the correct amount in an envelope with your child’s name on it.

Book Sale: week beginning 2nd October, in aid of Book Aid. Books will be on sale in the junior library every lunchtime. If you have any children’s books in good condition that you would like to donate, please send them in to the office. Across Africa, millions of people are unable to fulfil their potential because of a basic lack of books and reading resources. Book Aid International uses funds raised to help pack and distribute books mostly donated by publishers, to local and mobile libraries, schools, universities, healthcare providers and displaced and marginalised people, as well as to set up new libraries and train librarians in 14 countries. Last time we had a book sale we raised £60; let’s see if we can top that!

Data forms will be coming home today. Please return them by Friday. If the information is correct, please return the form with “No changes” written on it.

Shortcut! We have received a complaint from Twydall School that some of our parents have been cutting through their car park. Please don’t; you are risking injury and will not be covered by insurance.

Biscuits: due to the constant problem of biscuit boxes being lost, please put your child’s morning break biscuits in foil or cling film. No chocolate biscuits, thank you.

Parking: PLEASE PARK CONSIDERATELY!

Macmillan Coffee Morning/Mrs Phillips: Wednesday 27th September. We will be raising money for Macmillan nurses AND having a little farewell party for Mrs Phillips as she is finally leaving at the end of the month. Come and join us for coffee, cake, biscuits and a chat!

And finally…we would like to extend a hearty welcome to Mrs Maria Clarke, our new bursar. We hope she will be very happy here.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Myatt
