Newsletter – 19th December 2019

The holidays are here so it is time to say Merry Christmas one and all and our thanks to everyone for making this another wonderfully successful term at Chalkwell Hall. We finished our festive fun this week with our Carol Concert, Christmas dinner, Christmas Jumper Day for Save The Children and our Santa Run this afternoon.


We had our final celebration assembly this morning where the whole school got to witness the beautiful singing of our choir, who had performed so wonderfully at St Saviour’s church on Monday evening, along with the musical talents of our staff as a bonus surprise too!


Our enormous thanks to the efforts of our PTA team and their army of volunteers for helping organise and run so many different events over the course of the year. The money raised means we can keep the minibuses running, which are really important to our children taking part in so many events outside school, and it has helped pay for new playground equipment and new interactive screens in school which make learning a lot more interesting for our children. We wouldn’t be able to stretch budgets as far without our community rallying around us so thank you all for getting involved!


Governor news

Mr Neife came in to visit us this week:

I met with Mr Robinson with his year 4 table tennis group and it was overwhelming to see so much enthusiasm from the kids to play. I noticed that there were potential stars among the group as a table tennis player myself. The kids were hitting very tricky shots so I had to dig deep to save face. Anyway, it was worth the visit and I shall be back to help coach them.  The staff have been undoubtedly working tirelessly to help the children, you are all stars and on this, I say THANK YOU and WELL DONE!

Attendance matters

This week there were 40 times when a child arrived late to school. Our overall attendance so far this term is 97%.
