Dear Parents/Carers,

Last week we celebrated World Book Day, albeit a week later than originally planned. However, we appear to have joined the majority of other schools in rescheduling after the Siberian blast we experienced.

In typical Sevenoaks Primary style, both children and adults rose to the challenge to dress as a book character and it was a delight to see the school a riot of colour and teeming with a wide variety of costumes. Some pupils were so well disguised it took quite some guessing who they were at registration!

The children participated in a whole host of activities to celebrate the power of books. Some of our older pupils visited Foundation Stage to read to the little ones, which was a particular delight and a popular annual event for both year groups.

In the afternoon we held a Book Sale in the main hall. Thanks to all your kind donations, the tables were heaving with items for the children to select from. The children appeared hugely excited to take home something new to read.

A whole host of activities are planned for term 4, and I would encourage you to read through the listings on this page to see which ones your child will be participating in.

Interested in becoming a School Governor?
DEADLINE FRIDAY 16TH MARCH
 
This is a final call for nominations for the three Parent Governor vacancies.
Anyone, parent or carer, is able to seek to become a Governor, and if we have more than three nominations we will hold an election.
 
To apply, please contact the school office for an application form.
 
The most valuable qualification is a passion for the school and a desire to help shape its future, both today and going forwards.

 

Sensory Garden
 
Thank you for your recent votes for the Aviva Community Fund competition. We were unsuccessful in winning in our category, however we received a consolation prize of £100, which will be used towards the Sensory Garden.
 
We will continue with our efforts to establish the garden upon completion of the demolition process, which is likely to be the end of 2018.
 
Should you have any ideas, contributions or would like to volunteer to help out, please contact the SPSA on spsa@sevenoaks.kent.sch.uk
 
It is intended that a working party will be established to look at various aspects including allotments, a greenhouse, mosaic pathways and accessories.
