Big thank you to Projectfivek
A huge thank you to Projectfivek who have provided food vouchers to many of our families, not just at Christmas but throughout the year. The charity has also provided funds for our breakfast club to enable extra items to be purchased to ensure the children have a hot breakfast when they come in.
Acts of generosity like this are a wonderful example of how important it is to support those who are in need or struggling at this time.
If you need help with food or any other basic necessities please contact Mrs Tildesley via the school office or have a chat with her at the school gate.
Christmas Carols at Lewisham Hospital
Year 6 visited four of the Elderly Care units at Lewisham Hospital to sing carols and bring Christmas cheer!
St. Mary’s also donated 30 Christmas gift bags and handmade cards for patients to have on Christmas Day.
The patients and staff were delighted to hear the children sing - many sang along and remembered Christmases past.
Well done to all the children and especially to Mr. Sandman who accompanied the children on his guitar in true style!
A big thank you to our parents who came to wrap 100s of presents for Santa’s grotto. If Santa’s elves go on strike St. Mary’s parents could cover it no problem!
Here are our fabulous School Council 2022-23!
We have two representatives from each class Year 1-6 and we meet a couple of times each half term.
The School Council are a really important part of our school community as they share their views about aspects of school life and help with lots of projects! Watch this space for more developments!
Making it REAL - Nursery drop-in session
There was a lovely turnout of parents for an event to launch our Making it REAL project in the Nursery. This project aims to raise early literacy levels by encouraging families to do simple low cost activities at home like mark making, reading, talking and looking at everyday objects around them.
Every conversation with your child matters - whether on the bus or in the bath - so seize every opportunity!
Year 6 are Junior Citizens
Our Year 6 class developed their understanding of communities and their role as citizens both locally, nationally and globally. The event was held at Lee Fire Station and the children explored themes including transport, fire safety, the role of the police, road safety and healthy lifestyles.
