SUNDAY 11th NOVEMBER

WORLD WAR ONE EXHIBITION AND LUNCH

We have some excellent work to be exhibited at Rushbury Village Hall as part of the Remembrance Exhibition on Sunday 11th November. The children in Class 3 have thoroughly enjoyed putting together their local study on ‘The Lusitania’ and would be delighted if you could call in to see their display. In addition, Class 1 have contributed their own wonderful remembrance display to the exhibition.

VISIT FROM PRESTFELDE SCHOOL

Well done to the children who showed their work today to teachers from Prestfelde School in Shrewsbury. Prestfelde visited our school to find out more about our standards and curriculum organisation. As usual, the children had lots to show and share, and were great ambassadors for our school

SEVERN TRENT PRESENTATION

On Monday 12th November, staff from Severn Trent Water will be leading an assembly about water.

FILM NIGHT

Just a reminder that on Thursday 15th November, after school, the ‘Friends ‘will be showing the film The Early Man. This is a free event as a thank you for all of the funds raised for the playground.   A drink and a snack will be provided.

ARMISTICE BELL RINGING

“Her Majesty’s Government’s ambition is for bells to ring out at 12.30pm on 11th November to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice which signalled the end of the First World War. They want bells across the country and worldwide to join in to mark this historic occasion.   This will be a symbolic way to give thanks for the end of war 100 years ago. Bells ringing out at 12.30 will help mark the shift in emphasis from Remembrance in the morning to thanksgiving in the afternoon for the end of the war and for peace.” In Rushbury, the bell ringers have invited pupils of the school to ring the all six bells in the village and join in this event. There will need to be an adult to supervise each child and please arrive at the Church shortly before 12:30 to receive instruction.

BAG PACKING

Thank you to the children and parents who volunteered for bag packing at the Co-Op.   An amount over £200 was raised.

OPEN GARDEN 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 get in touch with the school office. Thank you.

SCHOOL MEALS AFTER HALF-TERM

Until we employ a new chef, Church Stretton Secondary School will be providing us with school meals. Please note that on Friday week 1 the meal choice will be fish cakes and not fish pie. In addition, the menu will be put on the school website in the ‘Parent’ ‘Information’ tab. Thank you to the South Shropshire Academy Trust for providing this service.
