13. November 2019 · Comments Off on School Council organised Autumn Litter-pick/Walk · Categories: Independent schools Nottingham, Nature
On Thursday 24th October 2019, the School Council organised for the school to go for an autumn walk around Colwick Park and pick-up litter at the same time.
 
On the walk we enjoyed the colourful autumn leaves, the rain and wind as well as realizing how much litter there was.  The children worked really hard to make the place much tidier as well as having lots of fun during the walk and breaks!
 
Here are some images from this great morning:

Thanks again to the School Council for organising it.
 
Best wishes,

You are invited to our…

SAINT MARTIN’S DAY LANTERN FESTIVAL

MONDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 2019 AT 5PM

Before the festival come along to the Winter Café at 3.30pm in the Hall hosted by Class 4/5.

Bring your pennies for homemade hot soup, rolls, cakes, samosas and warm drinks.

All proceeds to Class 4/5’s residential trip next year.

Martin joined the Roman Army at his father’s behest and, though a reluctant soldier, rose to the rank of Tribune within three years. He is remembered as the one who cut his cloak in half in order to clothe a cold and hungry beggar. After this act of charity he dreamt that he saw Christ wearing the half – cloak.

Martin left the army and went to Poitiers to become the disciple of Bishop Hilary. Although Martin would have preferred a quiet and humble life, the people of Tours wanted him to be their Bishop and had to trick him to get him into the cathedral to be consecrated. One story tells that he hid in a goose shed and the people came with their lanterns to find him.

When we are all gathered in the story circle, Class 2/3 will perform a German play about St Martin. This means that the performance space will need to be clear. We will be providing extra seating at the front for the children. Please follow the directions you are given on the night so that we can enjoy the event without long delays.

IF YOU USE THE TOP CAR PARKS PLEASE TAKE GREAT CARE IF TRYING TO DRIVE AWAY WHILE CHILDREN ARE STILL COMING DOWN FROM THE LAND

IN THE EVENT OF BAD WEATHER THE FESTIVAL WILL BE HELD IN THE HALL.

We look forward to seeing you there.
