Thank you to PiP for organising a super parent/carer/friends quiz night! It was such fun and raised £1200 towards our arts projects.

As we approach Easter, we will have a whole school Good Friday Liturgy of the Passion on Wednesday 27th March at 2:30pm. All are welcome.

We are saying goodbye to our long-standing piano teacher Miss Natalia at the end of this term and would like to welcome families to a music concert on Thursday 28th March, 9-10am.

A reminder that we finish school next Thursday 28th at 1:30pm.

Sporting News

Congratulations to the team of 8 girls from Y5 and Y6 on their success in the trampolining competition. It is so impressive that they were able to learn a routine from professional coaches and perform it so well in front of the judges. Special mention to Freya from Y6 for winning a bronze medal and Lola from Y5 for winning gold in the individual performances. Huge congratulations, of course, to the whole team for coming in 1st place overall! They had a great time and gained a valuable experience from working with the coaches. Well done, girls!

A huge well done to some of our Y5 girls who played in the U10 girls football cup final at Regents Park last weekend!

There were five Holy Trinity & S. Silas girls represented in both London Football School and Camden Girls.

London Football School played brilliantly to win and both teams were presented with their medals and the trophy by Chelsea manager Emma Hayes.

Supporting Our Primary Shakespeare Company

The Primary Shakespeare Company is the charity Mr Williams set up 15 years ago to spread the joy and transformative power of using Shakespeare with primary aged children, that we have pioneered here at Holy Trinity and S. Silas. The charity now works with over 60 schools across London and Kent. 

Double your money and make double the difference!

From now until midday 26th March, Primary Shakespeare Company will be taking part in the Big Give’s inaugural Arts for Impact campaign. During this time, every single pound you put in to support our programme will be doubled through match-funding. It’s like magic!  There’s no better time to donate – and every contribution, no matter how large or small, will help to make a real difference to the children with whom we work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! From everyone at The Primary Shakespeare Company

Christian Vision

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

Hebrews 10:24-25

This week we reflected on what happened in the Garden of Gethsemane where we saw Jesus showing his own personal struggle as he prayed for the strength to face the suffering ahead.

We get a glimpse of Jesus as being fully man and fully God. We see his anguish, fear, and dread – he begs God for this not to happen this way. He was overwhelmed and sorrowful as he is betrayed by Judas and abandoned by the disciples that fell asleep. We then see how Jesus soon accepts his fate. We see how he spurs himself on by trusting that what ever happens to him, it is part of God’s plan.

The events at the Garden of Gethsemane offer support and comfort to Christians today when they are going through difficult times in their lives. They believe that Jesus understands their pain because – like all human beings – he experienced suffering.

Yet not what I want, but what you want.

Mark 14:36

Attendance and Punctuality

This week our attendance remained at 96% which is pretty good although we can always do better so let’s continue to aim for at least a percentage more next week! We have had a few late arrivals this week and, while we appreciate there have been road works in the local area, we urge families to take this into account when planning the journey to school.

Attendance Bears

Infants: Reception with 98% Juniors: Y6 with 99.3%

Free Counselling Service for Parents

We highly recommend the free counselling service for parents through Camden. You can find out more and register your interest via this leaflet.

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

Camden Music Service

From Y1 onwards, you can sign your child up to learn an instrument in school. For more information and to download the Camden Music Service application form, please click here.
