School governor – Andy Watt to skydive for charity

Hello and Welcome from Team Santander Skydive
Santander Sky diving

A group of six men, young at heart and passionate to succeed have “dug deep” and taken on the challenge of their first skydive.

It is not to prove their bravery, nor to impress, nor overcome any fears – this inspiring team have taken on the challenge and set a target of raising £2,500 in aid of a very worthy cause. All money raised is in aid of the St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS) to help a vulnerable child find a forever family.

Please help Andy Watt, Nathan Jakes, Simon Masih, Angel Sainz de la Cruz, Adam Spencer and Dipen Dhokia to achieve their target.

Please donate generously !

About St. Francis’ Children’s Society

St. Francis’ Children’s Society (SFCS) is a voluntary adoption agency which seeks to make a difference to vulnerable children’s lives by finding them permanent families. SFCS operate across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, and are now expanding into East Anglia and Lincolnshire. SFCS is rated Outstanding by OFSTED. As a registered charity and limited company, our work is entirely charitable and non-profit making. Their Adoption Connections service offers an open-door policy. Currently in the UK, there are over 4,000 children in need of an adoptive family, and we welcome all kinds of adopters for all kinds of children, regardless of age, race, cultural background, religion, marital status or sexual orientation. As well as finding new families for children awaiting adoption, SFCS offers an extensive range of support services for adopters, and indeed anyone affected by adoption

The Birth Connections service offers advice, support and counselling to birth parents and other family members who have lost a child to adoption and are struggling to come to terms with that loss. We also offer family tracing services and appropriate counselling to adults who were adopted as children via our Building Connections service. SFCS values and respects everyone who is affected by adoption, and our ‘cradle to grave’ service is what makes us unique. www.sfcs.org.uk

Eclipse

Dear Parents / Guardians,

As a school we are aware that there is a partial lunar eclipse of the sun on Friday 20th March. Unfortunately weather conditions indicate that cloud will sabotage the spectacular views possible. There is also the safety issue with special glasses needed to look directly at the sun. Therefore we decided not to arrange anything special outdoors.

We will, however, be showing the eclipse on the large screen in the hall – internet permitting –  between 9am and 9.30am if parents wish to bring children in. Classes will be allowed out to experience the darkness between 9.30and  10am with teachers taking the children outside for an early play.

If your child does have glasses these can be brought to school and they will have an opportunity to use them if the forecast changes dramatically.

Children without glasses will be firmly warned not to look directly at the sun, but we do hope to give them some experience of this amazing event.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Scanlan

Thank you

Many thanks to everyone for supporting the Fairtrade cafe and book sale. The cafe raised £50 for Traidcraft.
I would also like to say a huge well done to class 5. Off their own backs, they decided to donate their own money and hold a silence to raise money for Comic Relief. It was a quiet day’s teaching!

Please don’t forget to spend the £1 book day token with your child!

Thanks again for all your support, Miss Thompson

Another Kingswood update…

Day 2 – continued

What an action packed day! This was definitely a day for conquering fears and overcoming challenges. The activities started with crate stacking and fun on the low ropes. The children displayed great team work and were very encouraging of each other as they piled the crates as high as they could!

Soon the adrenalin was really racing as everyone took to the go karting track. Eleanor D and Kai showed off some great driving skills. Move over Lewis Hamilton, some new F1 champions are coming through!

The highlights of the day were the zip wire and caving! Lots of children overcame their fears on the zip wire but a special mention goes to Nia who showed amazing bravery to overcome her BIGGEST fear! Half of the class have now  conquered the cave and enjoyed getting wet and muddy as they crawled along the underground tunnels. The rest are looking forward to the challenge tomorrow.

After all of the exciting activities, the children relaxed with a film and hot chocolate and, much to the teachers’ delight, everyone was soon fast asleep – fingers crossed this continues!

NSPCC update

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for all of your support with the NSPCC Sponsored Spelling Bee. The school managed to raise a total of £2059.13 which is absolutely fantastic! This money will enable the NSPCC to continue their vital work supporting children, a charity that is clearly close to our hearts.

Thank you all once again.
