There have been a lot of things happening in school this week. It was lovely seeing so many parents attend our 'Meet the Teacher' evening . We had many positive comments and although there were one or two concerns I am confident that I will be able to sort these out and ease parents’ worries. I would recommend though that if your child tells you something that you are unhappy about that you should discuss your concern with a member of staff so that you can check the validity of what your child has told you. Very often children misinterpret something and although it appears real to them the actual truth is a little different.
On Wednesday we had a visit from Brookman's Park Rotary Club to highlight 'World Peace day ' which is celebrated on the 21st September every year. 'World Peace Day' is dedicated to peace, and specifically the absence of war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone. It is observed by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples and, for the first time this year, members of the Little Heath School community. A selection of children from the school released white balloons into the sky and enjoyed the event very much. Photographs were taken and hopefully they will appear in the local paper soon.
Next week is another busy week in school. We are having the individual photographs on Monday and the older children will be taking part in netball and football tournaments. On Friday we are having 'Harvest Festival Coffee Morning'. This has become a very popular and successful event and that is all due to to the generosity of our parents who donate lots of cakes to be sold at the event and are then very generous with their donations for charity. This year , as I explained in my newsletter , we will be singing some autumn songs at the event so hopefully it will be an even more enjoyable occasion than normal. I look forward to seeing you all there.
