I hope you all had a great half term and have now all settled back into the school routine. It never ceases to amaze me that when you return to work after a holiday how quickly that holiday can become a distant memory.

School life has settled back to normal very quickly and all the children seem very happy to be back. We certainly had a very good start to our sporting calendar with both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ football teams winning their matches against Pope Paul.

I was really pleased to see so many of you here on Saturday for the annual Rotary Club Firework Display. As you know this is an event which is jointly run by the school and Brookmans Park Rotary Club and it helps to raise a lot of money for both organisations. It is also a great social event for everyone as well and all those who were here appeared to have a really great time. I think everyone who attended agreed that it was one of the best firework displays that they had seen and no-one could complain that they did not get value for their money. I will let you know how much we made from the event as soon as we get the figures from the Rotary Club. I would also like to thank the PTA and all the volunteers from the school who helped make the event such a success.

Next week is certainly going to be an action packed week for us. As I informed you in my newsletter we are starting a new ‘Walk to School’ project in school. The launch of the project is next Thursday but the leader of the project will be visiting the school on Tuesday so she can tell the children all about it. We are also going to be getting a visit from Martin Collins of Brookmans Park Rotary Club who is going to explain to the children why we are sending the shoeboxes to Eastern Europe. In the past the families of Little Heath have always been very generous when filling the shoeboxes and I am sure that you will be again.
