Rev’d Bill led a special Christingle Collective Worship last Thursday,
creating a human christingle!

 

Any filled Christingle collection boxes
can still be dropped at the church or at the school office.
Thank you.

 

 

This week a group of Year 4 children are taking part in an athletics event, organised by the
Redborne Sports Partnership. We wish them good luck!

 

We are really looking forward to our Concert ‘Christmas Crackers ’on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
The concerts will last approximately an hour.

We would ask for the children to be brought back to school by 5.30pm and the playground will be
available for parking each evening, but please take great care.
We hope you’ll enjoy another great performance by our talented pupils!

 

On Friday we have our non-uniform ‘Christmas Jumper’ or ‘Christmas Hat/Decoration’ day
with donations for the Save the Children Charity.

 On Sunday our choir are performing in the Stotfold Community Christmas Concert, organised by the Salvation Army. It is at the Greenacres Centre at 4.00pm. We hope you will go along and enjoy their performance!

  

Please can we remind you that children should not be playing football or going onto the slope area of the playground before and after school. Thank you.


I am delighted to inform you that St. Mary’s has been judged ‘Outstanding’ in our
recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools) Inspection.
