Dear Parents and Carers,
Only nine more sleeps until Christmas Day. We have had an eventful, stimulating and productive first term and I would like to thank you all for the welcome and support that I have had as your new Headteacher.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported us at our Christmas Fayre last Saturday and also for the excellent turn out we had for both performances of the school nativity. Both performances were superb, the children sparkled and shone as they performed – congratulations and well done to all of them.
I have some very exciting news to share with you. English Heritage recently ran a competition to find the best teacher on the Isle of Wight, Tilly in year 2 entered the competition and nominated Mrs Lennon. Tilly’s writing was so imaginative and persuasive that she won the competition; this was a complete surprise for Mrs Lennon. They both went along to Carisbrooke Castle on Monday to be presented with their prizes.
On a sadder note, one of our teachers will be leaving part of the way through next term. Mrs Jones, our Year 1 teacher, will be moving with her family to Australia. Her last day at Brighstone Primary School will be Friday 13th January 2017, nearer the time we will take the opportunity to wish her well and say our goodbyes.
I hope you all have a happy, restful and peaceful Christmas
