Dear Parents and Carers,
“Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give.”
Our first week of Advent has been really special. All of the acts of kindness have been very thought provoking and we hope that we can
continue beyond this week to build in daily acts of kindness for the remainder of Advent.
The Christmas Tree Festival has also helped us to get the festive season into full swing. Yesterday, our children sang at the opening of the Christmas Tree Festival at the Methodist Church. They have worked very hard and we are really proud of them, for their commitment,
enthusiasm and ability to convey the joy of the Christmas message. Thank you to Mrs Jones for all of her hard work with the children, the choir was bigger, better and more brilliant than ever. They have another opportunity to perform this afternoon at the school Christmas Fair and then next week they will be sharing their Christmas cheer with the residents of Brighstone Grange. Well done and thank you to everyone
On Wednesday 12th December we have our Christingle Service; this will be in church at 8.40am all parents, family and friends are welcome to join us. We will be making Christingles with the children during the morning on Tuesday 11th December and would like to invite parents to come in and help the children make them immediately after drop off in the morning from 8.30am onwards. We would be grateful if you could provide your child with an orange to make their Christingle, they will bring it home after the service. The school will provide all of the other materials that are needed. It would be helpful if the children could bring in their orange on Monday ready for the activity on Tuesday. Please do not worry if your child is not able to bring in an orange, the school will have some spare ones to make sure that everyone is included.
I look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Fair and at all of the events that are going to be taking place during the coming weeks.
