MESSAGE FROM MRS PYE

Thank you to Reverend Nancy Cleaton who led our Christmas service this morning and well done to all the children who took part in this special service.

I would like to thank parents, staff, governors, volunteers and ‘Friends’ of Rushbury for their continued support. I wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year. We look forward to seeing the children again on Wednesday 3rd January, refreshed and ready for a new and very exciting term.

CAROL SERVICE ST PETER’S CHURCH, 3.30 pm SATURDAY 16th DECEMBER

Due to the snowy weather, last week’s carol service was postponed. This special service is rescheduled for Saturday at 3.30pm. Mrs Pye will be attending the service.

FUNDRAISING

On Wednesday 6th December we raised £338.00 at the nativity which, when added to the money from the Christmas fayre (£282.00), minus £70.00 for mulled wine, gives a total profit of £550. Well done everyone.

PANTOMIME VISIT TO THEATRE SEVERN

Unfortunately, there are no seats available to accommodate an additional visit to this year’s pantomime at Theatre Severn. However, the theatre will transfer the ticket money to next year’s performance of Mother Goose. As this visit is an annual Rushbury School event, we have accepted this offer.   Parents will save money as ticket prices are set to go up in 2018. We have booked excellent seats for 18th December 2018.   Those children in year 6 will receive a full refund. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

INTER-SCHOOL BASKETBALL FINALS

Congratulations to Hannah Davies, Oli Wilson, Archie Ayres, Aidan Thomsett and Shaun Bradley who achieved a fantastic third place in the finals of the inter-school basketball competition at Church Stretton Secondary School.

CLASS 3 RESTAURANT DESIGN

Well done to the children in Class 3 who set up an excellent display of their restaurant designs. Thank you to all the children and parents who came to vote for their favourite restaurant. Congratulations to Oli Wilson who won the competition. Well done to Hannah Davies who came a very close second and Freddie Wills, Maisie Momcilovic and Lois Williams who came joint third.

RUSHBURY SCHOOL GOVERNORS

Many thanks to Andrew Perry for his time, support and commitment to Rushbury School, as one of our parent governors.   Andy completed his four year term of office at the end of November. In the spring term 2018 we will be looking to appoint two new parent governors. If this role is something you are interested in, please do get in touch with us. Being a governor is a rewarding and effective way of making a voluntary contribution to the life of the school.

SNOWY WEATHER

Thank you to everyone for helping us to manage the icy conditions and snowy weather. Thank you to Mr Brown who visited the school twice to grit the car park and help us make driving and walking conditions safer. Thank you to Richard Tipton who cleared the car park of snow.

CROSS COUNTRY CLUB

There will be no cross country club the first week back after the Christmas holiday.
