Chalkwell Hall Junior School Newsletter – 25th May 2018

You’ll notice a distinct lack of photos on this week’s newletter. This is because of the new GDPR data protection rules. The new regulations mean that we have to ask you all to reconfirm your permission for specific uses of photos and videos. Nothing has changed really – we still want to use them in just the same ways that we always have, on newsletters, our website, facebook, twitter etc to keep you all up to date with our successes in school – apart from the fact that we have to ask you all to sign up again! It’s horrible having to ask children to step out of a photo if they don’t have permission to be in it, so please get these back in as soon as possible and then we can continue to share the achievements of Chalkwell Hall with our community just as we always have.

Go Bonkers was a huge success on Friday night – our thanks to everyone who supported us and particularly to all our volunteers for helping the event to go so smoothly and successfully.

Another great success from last Friday was our Year 5&6 boys who earned a share of the Champions Trophy. We decided against penalties in the event of a draw so we will share the honour of being champions with Bournes Green Juniors. It’s the fourth year out of the last five that we have had our names on the trophy and, having won league one as well, it caps off another very successful year for the Moltino and Robinson management team. Well done boys, a game played with great team spirit!

Our Netballers competed at Garon Park on Tuesday and did us proud as always. After a tough start, losing 3 out of the first 4 games by narrow margins, the girls fought their way back to win all 4 of their games after the lunch break! Great resilience on display along with some excellent netball. Well done girls, a great comeback and all played the right way with smiles on your faces!

PTA news

What a fabulous afternoon and evening last Friday at our Inflatable Fun Day with Go Bonkers. The sun was shining, the Pimms and Prosecco were flowing and it was so lovely to see the happy smiles on the children’s faces and them thoroughly enjoying themselves! Thank you to all the staff and parent volunteers on the day and to everyone who supported this event; together we raised a fantastic £3290!!!

Preparation for the biggest event on our calendar, our Summer Fete on Saturday 30th June 2018, 12-3pm is now in full swing. We are kindly asking for donations for our raffle, pre-loved uniform, bottles of wine, soft toys and toiletries for the tombolas. Please bring your donations into school from Monday 18th June 2018. We are also looking for volunteers to help set up on the day, help to run a stall and clear away. If you are able to volunteer any time, even for just an hour, please email, it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support and we wish you all a wonderful half term break, let’s hope the weather is kinder to us this time!
