There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.

As we begin the summer term, there is already much excitement about Shakespeare! We welcome Phil the Story Spinner in next week to share this year’s play.

Clubs and music lessons begin again next week. We have two new piano teachers joining us from Camden Music this term. Parents will be notified by Camden about the days their child will have a piano lesson.

We will be sending out a parent/carer questionnaire next week. We look forward to hearing your views on what we do well and how we could further develop.

Mitzvah Day Award

We are absolutely delighted to share the wonderful news that we have won an outstanding youth achievement award for the way we come together as a school for Mitzvah Day and are collectively proactive in making a difference to those in need. Thank you so much to families for their amazing support.

Art Challenge – The Three Cs

At Holy Trinity ‘the three Cs’ of CARE, COOPERATION and COURAGE are integral to our school life. We would like to create some visuals to represent these values – these will be used on school documentation and displays to reinforce the importance of the three Cs.

We would like to set the children a challenge to create an artwork at home that illustrates ONE of the three Cs. This artwork can be created in any media: pencil, pen, paint, collage… the choice is yours. Children should bring their artwork to school, clearly labelled with their name, by Tuesday 4th June.

Please do encourage your child to participate – we can’t wait to see what they create!

Christian Vision

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, by encouraging one another.

While reflecting on the recognition we received for Mitzvah Day, we are reminded about the power of a community united in working together to show love and good deeds to the wider community. This annual event is so powerful in teaching our children how giving to others should be unconditional and because it is simply the right thing to do.

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on”.

This passage shows us the importance of being willing to give, even if it seems like a small amount or a small deed. Our generosity matters, no matter the size of our gift or of our action. God does not measure our gift by the amount, but by how we give and when we collaborate to give together. This is indeed something special.

New Emotional Wellbeing Website for Young People and Families

A new NHS website, packed with emotional wellbeing and mental health information and resources, has been launched to help young people and families, as well as professionals working with them, to navigate support options.

NCL Waiting Room was produced with the help and input of young people, families and professionals. It aims to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on specialist mental health services, community groups, emotional wellbeing and self-care resources.

It allows young people and their parents or carers to search for, filter and share resources based on their needs and preferences.

NCL Waiting Room will continue to grow and develop, so watch this space for more details. You can visit the website here and try out the Support Hub resource navigation feature here.

If you have any feedback on the website, you can do this on the relevant pages of the site, or email
