RUSHBURY PRESENTATION – SHROPSHIRE IT CONFERENCE

Regionally, and nationally, our school is recognised for its innovative, rich and broad curriculum. Earlier this year, Shropshire’s information technology (IT) service asked us if we would lead a presentation at their annual conference. On Wednesday 3rd October some of our Year 5 and 6 children will be assisting with this presentation on stage at Theatre Severn. This a great opportunity to share some of the things we do at Rushbury School and is an excellent opportunity for our older children to speak on stage at a public event.

CHANGE OF DATE – CHRISTMAS LUNCH AND NATIVITY

Please note that the date of the Christmas lunch and Nativity play has changed to Thursday 13th December 2018. On this date, the children will spend the day at Rushbury village hall. We will rehearse the Nativity in the morning and Christmas lunch will start at 12.00 noon. Parents of Year 6 children, governors and school volunteers are invited to the lunch. In the afternoon, we have a dress rehearsal for the Nativity. Children return to the village hall for a 6.00pm performance. Nearer the time, you will receive more information about the day.

PARENTS’ EVENING

Parents’ evening will be held on two dates:

Tuesday 9 October – Parents’ evening for new Reception children

Tuesday 15 October – Parents’ evening for children in Years 1 to 6

In addition we will be holding a curriculum information evening on Tuesday 13 November. Details and appointment slips to follow.

MILLICHOPE CROSS COUNTRY EVENT RESULTS

Well done to all the children who took part in this event. There was some excellent running. Macey Kite and Abbie Child did particularly well in the year 3 / 4 race for girls with Macey coming 3rd and Abbie 4th out of 120 participants. Edward Noblet also deserves a mention for coming 7th out of 130 boys in the year 3 / 4 race for boys.

CHANGE TO MENU

Please note that from now on the meal will be lasagne on Thursday week 2 of the menu and not pasta carbonara as this meal has proved unpopular with the children.

START OF DAY ARRANGEMENTS

Please make sure your child is settled into class by 9.00am. Most children arrive between 8.45 and 8.50am. This gives them time to settle in amongst their peers and be ready for the school day. This makes for a smooth start to the day.

END OF DAY PROCEDURES

Please could we ask all parents and carers picking up children at the end of the day to wait on the top playground behind the wall. We need the space to manage the children travelling by taxi. Once the taxi children have left, you are welcome to sit and meet on the bench below.

RUSHBURY SCHOOL KITCHEN

On Friday 16th November, Jennifer and Dawn Allison will no longer be providing the children’s school meals. We would like to thank them for the service they have provided. We are looking for new caterers to take on the provision of school meals from Monday 19th November. Please let us know if you are interested, or know of anyone who would be interested in taking on this service. Thank you.

VOLUNTEER PAINTERS NEEDED

The picket fencing and Class 1 veranda need painting. Following the ‘Friends’ meeting on Monday evening, it was suggested that parents and friends of Rushbury School could get together to paint this woodwork. Therefore they are organising a volunteer painting day on Sunday 7th October. Paint and paint brushes will be available. If you are able to spare the time to help, please complete the reply slip attached and return to school by Friday 28th September. Thank you

OPEN GARDENS EVENT

In 2019 the ‘Friends’ of Rushbury School are organising an Open Gardens event in Rushbury and the surrounding area. The event will be to raise funds for Rushbury School and St Peter’s Church. If you are interested in opening your garden, or you know of anyone who would be interested in opening their garden, please could you fill in the slip attached and return it to school before Wednesday 17th October. Thank you.
