Helping others, being able to change lives and giving back to our wider community is something we all value. Our Harvest festival celebrations did exactly that! The children made beautiful leaf art candle lights, cakes, bread and cheese straws to sell after the church service and we raised an amazing £192 for the Send a Cow charity. Thank you to everyone who made contributions towards this great cause and for all the food donations given in support of the Chichester Food Bank.
Democracy Day was a professional affair with candidates canvassing for support in an incredibly polite way. Every child had the chance to vote democratically for their class representatives. The children take responsibility in many areas of school life including: School Council, Learning Council, TechnicIans – Digital Leaders of the future, Eco Warriors – conserving energy and saving money, Ambassadors, Librarians and Sports Captains.
Our Ambassadors organised a fantastic Grandparents and Family Afternoon to celebrate national grandparents day. They served tea and cake and looked after our guests brilliantly. I am very proud of the polite, caring and considerate children we have at WGPS.
All things important are best discussed over a cup of tea or coffee, in a truly British way! I was so pleased to see so many parents and carers attending our recent ‘Coffee and Catch Up’ session. One of the main discussions was around the hiring of our school facilities. Look out for details of the different rooms available to hire, including costings. We are also hoping to set up a regular ‘Stay and Play’ session for pre-school aged children. This will give children and their family members an opportunity to get to know us and the school before they join in September. Once again, look out for further details coming soon.
I am not sure I can quite believe we are once again planning for the festive season! As we embrace the delights in the change of season, we look forward to a wealth of celebrations. These include: the Christmas Tree Festival, where our Rock Choir will be performing, the Christmas Carol Concert and of course the brilliant Nativity. We look forward to celebrating with you.
