School news

Annual review month

We started our annual review cycle on Monday.  Feedback has been positive and it is good to see parents in school.

 

Zillah Gant

Congratulations to Ms. Gant [Parayhouse Art Therapist] and her partner Simon, on the arrival of Xerxes Leon Gant Hall, a brother for Theo.

 

Alice Wentworth

On Monday we welcomed Alice Wentworth, a student from St. Mary’s University.  Alice is in her second year at St. Mary’s and this is her SEN enhancement placement.

 

 

 

 

Baby Fish!!

Neptune have lots and lots of baby fish. We would love to give them away, free to good homes. They are tropical guppies, so they need a heater and filter in their tank. If you think you could give some a good home, please let us know!!

 

Information from parents to parents

Alex Patrick [Edie’s Mum] writes:

Hi Ann,

These events might be of interest to some of the children at school. There's an inclusive weekend event at the Tate and London zoo. We've been on the SEN zoo day before and it's brilliant. They are offering free places at Colourscape on Clapham Common in September too.

Jupiter’s VE Day Party

Thank you to all the students who came to Jupiter’s VE-Day tea party, on the last day before half term.

It was really nice to watch all of the students interacting together!

Jupiter students put on a good spread & all said that they really enjoyed throwing the shindig! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Residential camps

Please find, in your child’s folder tonight, a residential consent form and kit list.

 

Summer Party

Saturday 17th June 12-2pm

We would be delighted if parents could send in any donations for the tombola or raffle.  Any unwanted gifts, bottles of wine etc. would be greatly received. I would like to thank families who have already donated!

Staff are busy planning the day and hope to see as many of you as possible.

 

Raffle

If you are not attending the event of the summer party, but would like to buy a raffle ticket to support the school, they are £1 per ticket.

Please send in your money and I will return your tickets – as the saying goes “you have to be in it to win it!!”

 

Lunches

 Next week we will be on Week 2 of the College menu.

 

Assemblies

There are no more themed assemblies this term, due to annual reviews and camps.
