In assembly this week we discussed Advent. It was lovely to see the children’s excitement and natural reactions as we thought about the different preparations for Christmas. We challenged them to think about the practical steps we can all take as well as some of the ways we can think of when preparing ourselves for Christmas. At this time of the year we naturally think of others and this year has brought more significant challenges than ever before. Thank you for your generosity in donating gifts for the refugees that are staying in Hoylake. Jan Dacombe, from the Compassionate Friends, met with some of the refugees at St. Luke’s in Hoylake. Your donations, cards and gifts will make a real difference.
As part of our Christmas festivities and our continuing commitment to charity work, school will be taking part in the Christmas Hat Day organised by ‘Claire House’. Tomorrow, all members of our school will be invited to wear a festive hat or diddly-boppers. For this privilege, we would like a donation to send to the charity ‘Claire House’. Some background on Christmas Hat Day: Claire Cain is the inspiration behind Claire House. When she was going through chemotherapy, she would wear funny hats to share her sense of humour and cheer people up. Her outlook on life remains a key value throughout the charity and Christmas Hat Day is a great way to celebrate Claire and support the hospice at Christmas.
If twenty people donated £1 each, you could pay for an hour of nursing care at Claire House.
The Christmas Tree
Once again, we have been donated a beautiful Christmas Tree from Church Farm, Thurstaston. At the moment the children are busy making and finishing their decorations. We will tweet pictures on Monday when we have finished decorating it.
Fortunately, we have had no cases of Coronavirus amongst the staff or pupils this week. Please be assured that we will not be complacent over this matter and will continue to follow our safety measures. As you will know Wirral is now in Tier 2 and I have put information posters on the news section of website in case you wanted to check what we have been advised.
- I would ask that we remain thoughtful towards our neighbours in all instances when parking in the local area.
- The end of the day continues to work quite smoothly, however, it has become apparent that lots of children, some very young, are using the play equipment. While this is tempting, I would ask that they do not use the equipment as they are not being supervised by a member of staff. I would ask that parents continue to leave the playground as soon as possible once they have collected their children.
