HARVEST SERVICE AT ST. EDITH’S CHURCH

Our Harvest Service will be held at 10.30 am on Thursday 11th October at St Edith’s Church, Eaton. Parents, family, friends and governors are invited to this special service. As is the tradition, we will be walking to Eaton. We will be leaving school, on foot, shortly after registration. Please meet us on the school playground at 9.10am if you would like to join us for the walk. Please may I remind you to ensure that your child has suitable clothing for this visit (including wellington boots and a waterproof coat/jacket). There will be refreshments available for the children on arrival at St. Edith’s Church.

This year we will be raising funds for local food banks. Please could donations be sent in an envelope marked ‘Harvest Collection’ before Thursday.   Thank you.

RECORDER PERFORMANCE

On Thursday 11th October, at the Harvest Festival, the children will perform some of the pieces learned to date. Please make sure your child has their recorder in school on that day. Please make sure the recorder itself is named as they will all be put in one box together. Thank you.

RECEPTION PARENTS’ EVENING

Mrs Manley is looking forward to meeting the parents of our new Reception children on Tuesday after school. If you have not yet made an appointment, please get in touch.

YEAR 2 SPORTS ACTIVITIES

On Friday 12th October, Year 2 will be visiting Church Stretton Secondary School to take part in this inter-school event. The children will travel by school minibus and be back in time for lunch as normal. They will be accompanied by Mrs Manley.

PARENTS’ EVENING

Parents’ evening will be held on two dates:

Tuesday 9th October – Parents’ evening for new Reception children

Tuesday 16th October – Parents’ evening for children in Years 1 to 6

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

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.

There is a job description for a chef and further details on the school website in the Governor’s tab under information.

 

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 below and return it to school before Wednesday 17th October. Thank you.
