Notices and Reminders
"Tell the truth to each other" Zechariah 8.16
This week, our whole school worships have been led by Mrs Cutler and the Year 6 Reflective Leaders, Fr Joe and 6TS. We have been reflecting on all the choices we have to make in our everyday lives, and making the right choices, particularly when other people may influence us to make the wrong choice and not tell the truth. 6TS used examples from stories (including their own) as well as real life examples to make us all think about the impact our choices have on ourselves, others and the wider world.
Remember if your child exhibits any covid symptoms and you book a test at any time, including over the weekend please don't forget to let us know and also the test result when you receive it by emailing email@example.com.
On Wednesday, we held our annual joint sports event for Year 2 pupils from Swing Gate and Victoria, and our Year 3 pupils as part of the transition programme. This year, however, we kept to our bubbles and maintained social distancing. Fortunately, the lovely weather made this much easier.
This Friday evening, the long-awaited overnight camp on the school field for Year 6 pupils took place, having been cancelled last week due to extremely wet weather. They enjoyed a disco and film before settling down in their tents for the night.
This Thursday, class photographs were taken; the children all looked very smart in their school uniform or school PE kits. Proofs will be sent home for you to view before ordering.
We'd like to remind you about the CREATE-Covid Response programme which is being run by Dacorum Family Services. Next week's sessions are all about Worries, with two Zoom sessions being run: Monday 28 June at 6.30pm and Tuesday 29 June at 10am. Click here for further details.
A polite reminder to those parents and carers who drive to school: please don't park or drop-off on both sides of the road - we need to leave plenty of space for emergency vehicles, so please only park on one side, particularly on the lane past the main entrance of the school.
