A Message from Lindsay Gabriel
What a wonderful first term we have had at Winsham. It has been a term full of learning, discovery and community spirit. We have focused on two of our values; respect and perseverance. All staff are immensely proud of everyone of our pupils at Winsham primary and in the Pre-school with their individual developments and inspiring attitudes to learning.
A very big thank you for all your support over the Christmas period. We were very kindly donated our Christmas tree from Mr Mike Douglas. We have never seen a tree so tall – it touches the ceiling! The children have really enjoyed putting their own bauble on the tree and decorating as a school. It was such a pleasure to hear about the parent afternoon where help was given to decorate the hall.
The younger children did extremely well learning their lines for ‘Christmas with the Aliens’ and the older children showed great maturity in their various supporting roles. Also, the children were fantastic at leading the ‘Carols by Candlelight Concert’ last week and sung beautifully at our Family Church Service earlier today. Thank you to all Parents and family members who have been able to attend and joined us in our events and Christmas celebrations.
I am so pleased that we were able to take the entire school to watch the Pantomime. Giving the children the opportunity to watch a live performance was tremendous.
Thank you to the PFA for organising the Christmas Fair. There were many happy faces wondering the halls last Friday, with various face paints and prizes in their hands. A total of £847.93 was raised together with the Christmas Bingo, which will go towards vital school equipment. Thank you to all who donated and spent money on the stalls.
I must also thank The Bell who have donated £60 from money collected through their weekly Lottery. We have already decided this will be spent on a better sound system!
I would like to wish you all a very happy and restful holiday and look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 7th January!
