Thursday 1st April

We made it!

It has been a long term, but a happy one. Being together for the last four weeks has really helped everyone’s morale and today’s assembly, where we celebrated the fantastic decorated eggs, was really uplifting. Our newly formed Head and Deputy Head Pupil Leadership Team were entirely in control of the competition judging and they wore their masks and scrutinised (not going near any other pupils) all of the competition eggs in the school. The first thing that they said when they reported back to me was how difficult it was to choose the winners! There were a lot of special mentions, I can tell you.

Seeing so many wonderfully decorated eggs come in to school today was wonderful and it showed just how creative we are at WPA – I would have liked to mention all of them as they were ALL amazing but no one has that amount of patience or reading span so I will only mention the winners. Stanley (YR), Archie (Y6) and Alfie (Y4) were the overall winners and they are shown in the attached pictures with their wonderfully decorated eggs.  WELL DONE to everyone who decorated though – you all did an eggcellent job.

This week we have had really good news regarding the Bag2School FOWPA collection – you raised an amazing £363! AND, as our Facebook page states, lots of you now have more room in your drawers. Phew!

We also had our second 100 Club draw yesterday too and we are delighted to announce that the winners are: Jackie Cann (1st Prize), Tony Cann (2nd Prize) and Katreen Bellringer (3rd Prize). A huge well done to the winners and fingers crossed for the next draw!

A reminder that all parents can use the lateral Flow Device Testing Kits at home. Parents can order them online using the link below or you can collect them directly from the Covid Centre behind the Library in Bodmin.

Please remember that we have an INSET day on Monday 19 April and the school is closed. The first day of term is Tuesday 20 April. Hurrah!

The timings for drop off and pick ups next term are EXACTLY THE SAME as this term. We still need to ensure that as few people are in school at any time, so please stick to the set timings – it is so appreciated.

Almost there…. We love that you are keeping in touch and teachers are always more than happy to receive emails with any questions or concerns you may have. However, please note that teachers work incredibly long hours and will only be able to reply to your emails during the working day, Monday to Friday. All teachers are teaching in class on a full-time basis now, so please do not always expect an immediate reply but know that they will be in contact with you as soon as possible. If you ever have an urgent concern, please contact the school office and ask for a message to be sent to your child’s class teacher as they will always respond immediately to this. Thank you for your support with this.

Last thing before happy holidays:

Please remember to label lunchboxes (you would be amazed how many pupils have the same lunchbox…) and please remember that we are a NUT FREE school.

I wish you all the most relaxing and recharging Easter Break and I look forward very much to seeing you all on Tuesday 20 April.

Take good care and stay safe

Kindest regards
Ms Whitlock
