As we come to the end of a term filled with many successes and achievements, the staff & governors of HTSS would like to wish our families a happy and peaceful Christmas break. We look forward to welcoming you back on Tuesday 7th January 2020.

Thank you to PIP and our families for a great Christmas Fair last week, you helped raise £3,148.84 towards iPads and maintaining the arts opportunities.

Congratulations to Y2 for selling the most raffle tickets – they will have a non uniform day in the new year.

We enjoyed the various concerts this week where your children continued to showcase their talents…..

Sporting News

On Tuesday this week our footballers played against Hawley and Kentish Town in the CSSA league.  Our girls drew with Hawley 2-2 and beat Kentish Town 2-0; our boys beat Hawley 3-0 and beat Kentish Town 3-1.  A particular well done to Lacey, Nafesha and Taylor for scoring goals for the girls, and to Jesse, who scored all six of the boys’ goals!

Christmas serves to bring people together and leads us to open our hearts in recognition of the stranger and outsider, forming us to be a people with no ambition ‘except to do good’ (Titus 3:4). Let us continue to think wisely in our actions and interactions.
