Open Morning – Wednesday 5 November 2014
We were delighted
to see so many parents at our Open Mornings at the beginning of October. We have
decided to arrange an additional open morning for parents of children due to start school for the first time in September
2015. This will be held on Wednesday 5 November from 9.15am
– 10.45am, so if you or anyone you know is interested please do come along. Further information is available on our school’s website.
Coop Community Champions!
We were delighted to be informed that Dunholme St
Chad’s Church of England Primary School were chosen to be the first Community Champions in the new Dunholme store!
This means that for 3 months, every time someone shops in our new local store and uses their dividend card, our school
receives a donation which we plan to use to furnish our new learning area/library.
Additionally, members also have the option to choose a Community Champion of their choice from
a central list. So if you choose Dunholme St Chad’s Church
of England Primary School, we would receive the total amount raised by members at
the end of each year! If you think
you would like to support our school in this way and help us to raise funds, you can choose your community Champion by visiting
www.lincolnshire.coop/communitychampions . We would like to thank all the
community for their support.
New Learning Spaces
We are delighted
with our newly constructed learning spaces; ‘The Pod’ and ‘The Hub’. These learning
areas have created space which is conducive to learning and nurtures curiosity, creative and enjoyment. We
are now looking forward to furnishing them with the help of valuable funds raised from the Coop Community Champions.
Let’s Grow Vouchers
The deadline for collecting Morrisons Let’s Grow
Vouchers was at the end of October. If you have any vouchers lurking around the house or at the bottom
of your handbag, we would be really grateful if you would bring them into school. Thank you for your support!
We are pleased to announce our new
School Council members. Approximately 50 children from Y1 to Y6 stood for election; which was an overwhelming
number. Each presented their manifesto to their class - the following children were voted by their class
Y1: James Ackroyd & Tommy Hewitt
