Trocaire 2018 – Kumba’s School

It was great to see the children working so hard to raise much needed funds for Trocaire over Lent.   We thank our parents for supporting the children in their fundraising efforts and ask that you always encourage them to think of others who are less fortunate than us. Sincere thanks to everyone who made our Lenten charity work such a huge success. Together we raised £800 for Trocaire.

 

Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance is a crucial factor in every child’s learning and in St Patrick’s most parents recognise this, making sure that their child’s attendance is as high as possible. However, for some children, attendance is an issue and so pupil attendance is being more carefully monitored this year.

Whilst we appreciate a telephone call to inform us if a child is going to be absent this should be supported by a written note sent into school on the pupils return. Any absence without a written note is now being followed up by the admin staff of the school.

 

Parents are encouraged not to take family holidays during term time!

World Book Day

Unfortunately, our World Book Day celebrations didnt take place as the school was closed due to snow. The event will now take place over the week of 5th March. In school your child will be taking part in a range of book related activities with their teacher.

P1-3 pupils will share stories with local post-primary school pupils and P4-7 classes will take part in a variety of activities around the theme of Share a Story. Remember to spend the 1 book token which can be used at any book store. And please take a little time during the week to share a story with your child.

Cracking Comprehension

All children from P2-7 have access to Cracking Comprehension, a fantastic on-line resource to develop reading and comprehension skills in a fun and enjoyable way. Please encourage your child to use Cracking Comprehension at home.

Mathletics

It is great to see children so keen to use the Mathletics on-line resource in school and at home. Every child has their log-in details, so they can work on developing their maths skills, competing by completing the tasks, or competing against their classmates and other children from around the world. Already many children have achieved the silver award.

Parents please encourage their child to use this resource at home!

World Maths Day 7th March
