End of year notices

Dear Parent/Carer

Huge thanks for all your support this year.  I am very privileged to be the head of a school with talented and enthusiastic pupils, hardworking staff and such an engaged parent body.  The post of Head Teacher is being re-advertised after the summer holidays and as such I will be back for more Stockbridge excitement in the new term until the new Head Teacher is appointed.

FINAL FRIDAY ARRANGEMENTS

Please remember that we close early for the summer holidays as 12 o’clock this Friday.  This year all classes will congregate in the playground at 11.55am to clap our leaving P7’s out of school led by Mr Whitmore on his bagpipes.  All parents are very welcome to join the classes in the playground for this event.  Primary 1 – 3 pupils will then be dismissed from their class lining up positions and all other children will leave straight from this event.  Please can parents of P1-3 pupils ensure they do not take your child from the playground without informing the class teacher.

CLASSROOMS AND LINING UP ARRANGMENTS FOR NEXT YEAR

Please see below for lining up positions for next year.  Please can P1 parents (of children moving into P1/2 and P2) note that we are trialling a soft start.  The children will not line up in the playground and will instead go straight into the classroom any time between 8.55 and 9am.

Class 18-19 Which classroom? Where do they line up?
P1 New classroom Trial of soft start – children to come in between 8.55-9am and go straight into classroom
P1/2 New classroom Trial of soft start – children to come in between 8.55-9am and go straight into classroom

P7 Leavers Hoodies

Primary 7 have decided they would like leavers hoodies to help them commemorate their time here at Stockbridge Primary school. If you follow the link below you can pick the type of hoodie, colour and size. You then proceed to check out via the website. Once I have received the orders the hoodies will be made and sent to the school.

Please note that this has to be done by Wednesday 13th June to ensure we have enough time to get the hoodies printed and delivered.

Sponsored Walk Grand Total

I am delighted to announce that our sponsored walk for Mpeni raised an astounding £3772.93!!!!

When this is added to our fundraising from earlier in the year our grant total comes to £7890.19!  This includes an extra £110 raised by Okko, Valo, Suzanne and Paul through a toy sale they organised in their weekend.

I  am so grateful and proud of the effort made by everyone in the school community to help our friends in Mpeni.  We are hoping that the additional money raised will be able to support the building of additional resources for the school.  We are in discussions with the Mpeni school community regarding the best use of the funds.

Thank you!

Best wishes,
