General News

Another busy week for everyone! Congratulations to our talented Y6 who wowed their adult audience (including some celebrities) when they performed a scene from ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’ at the Mercers’ Hall this week, as part of a fundraising gala for the Primary Shakespeare Company. The charity, that began here, enables many schools in London to have a taste of what our children experience during our spring term Shakespeare project.

Earlier this week, we held our annual Sports Day and what a great success it was!  We were very lucky again with the sun shining all day. For the first time, we ran a carousel of fun games and races in the morning and then had the children take part in various competitive events in the afternoon. Well done to all the children for being so well behaved and for showing good sportsmanship and teamwork throughout the day. Also, a huge thank you to all the staff and PiP team who helped organise the day and to all the parents/carers who came along to show your support. The results will be announced at Prize Giving Day on the 16th July.

Y5 & Y6 took part in a Ceilidh in the playground this week which was great fun for both our musicians and dancers!

A reminder that during the week of the 8th July, each class will hold a small ‘Exhibition Fair’ after school to promote what they have been learning through the global goals and to teach the rest of the school and wider community about how we can make the world a better place for all to live in.

Staffing for 2019.20

It is incredible how this year has whizzed by and is almost complete! We look forward to welcoming our new Reception Class 2019 and their parents next Wednesday morning. Most classes will also get to meet their teacher for next year with one exception – Y4 will meet their teacher on Friday 12th July.

You will have noticed that we have two teachers expecting babies. Miss Woolway will return after the summer break for half a term and will be supporting staff and children around the school while Miss Hale will leave on maternity at the end of this term. We have an experienced Camden teacher covering Reception class and Y2 will have a newly qualified teacher who has prior teaching experience in an international school.

We are sad to say that Mrs Bergin is not returning to us from her maternity leave, she is taking up a part time role in Haringey from September. We are however delighted to be welcoming her back for the last three days of this term. We will also be saying goodbye to Miss Hegarty who has been with us this year in Y5. She will be returning home to Tasmania later in the year and we wish her all the very best.

One final big change for September is that we are saying goodbye to Ms McCreadie. Having started 14 years ago as a newly qualified teacher, Ms McCreadie has brought so much to Holy Trinity & S. School and community both as a class teacher and latterly as a school leader. She will be a huge loss to us, but she is taking up a post at the Primary Shakespeare Company, a charity that impacts children all over London and to whom she will be a strong asset. From September Mr McIntyre will become our full time Deputy headteacher and so will not be a class teacher.

The classes for next year are as follows:

Reception Miss Petrou, Miss Powley & Mrs Hough
Y1 Mrs Evans & Ms Bergin
Y2 Miss Johns-O’Neil & Mrs Kabir
Y3 Miss Wainer & Mrs McQueen
Y4 Miss Robey & Ms Clayton
Y5 Miss Glassenbury & Ms Hall
Y6 Miss Law & Mrs Gashi

Christian Value – Service

In collective worship we have been focusing on saints and the lessons we learn from their lives. Next week it is the feast day of our very own S. Silas. With the children, we will be thinking about him, what he sacrificed for his faith and why he is important to us. He was chosen by Paul to spread God’s word:

And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God” (Acts 15:40)
