As you can no doubt imagine this week has been somewhat different to the one we imagined we might have. However, it makes me very proud to see how our community have responded. The messages of support and thanks we have received have been really very touching. We are living in a very challenging time but the Worsley Bridge community never ceases to amaze me in the way it continues to remain so positive.
I would like to tell you about another amazing pupil-Huxley. Huxley spent last weekend selling cakes to raise money for Shelter. Following a discussion about homelessness, he felt so strongly that ‘everybody should have a roof over their head’, that he wanted to find a way to help.
His parents told him all about Shelter and he set about making a stall with his dad. He then asked his sister to support by baking treats and instructed his mum to market the event. Huxley managed to raise an incredible £102, which his parents promised to match! We are all so proud of you Huxley!
Last weekend Taran, in year 3, played for his football team. His play and conduct were so good that he was made ‘man of the match’. This is a wonderful achievement Taran and I am sure you are a real asset to your team. I hope that this inspires other families to let us know about any out of school successes-especially as we are not able to get together as a whole school for the time being.
On Thursday, we will be celebrating Mr Nourish’s birthday. To make his day really special the kitchen would like children to design and make him a birthday card. All cards will then be entered into a competition to win some small prizes! If your children would like to create a card, they should bring it to my office and I will pass it onto Liz in the kitchen!
Before I sign off I would just like to remind you how you can help us minimise the risks that Covid 19 bring to us at school:
- Drop off/pick up at the correct time for your year group
- Wear a face covering
- Leave a space between you and other families
- Leave the premises as quickly as you can
- Keep the pathways around school clear
Have an enjoyable weekend
