Dorset School Games

St Mary’s athletics team were able to produce an excellent second place in the Dorset School Games quad kids event. Comprising of 75m sprint, 600m run, a broad jump and a throw, the pupils worked extremely hard on a hot day to prove how talented they are and how their extra training has paid off. A special mention must go to Lauren who won best girl overall and Olivia for finishing 3rd.

Coming second is an excellent achievement for a one class school compared to the winners who were Allenbourne Middle from Wimborne.

Parish Tea Party

Singers from year 6 were welcomed at the Parish Tea Party where they entertained the parishioners with a selection of songs.  Many thanks to them for some lovely singing and to the parish for delicious cake!

Litter-pickers

Pupils have been very enthusiastic about the Plastic Free Schools Campaign and many children have been picking up litter both in and out of school. Some of them have even got some specialist equipment for picking up litter on the journey to school.

Green Team Plastic Campaign News

The Green Team presented their petition to managers of Co-op and Budgens asking that they try and reduce unnecessary plastic packaging in their stores. Since our last visit to Budgens they have switched to paper bags instead of plastic for customers to use when buying loose fruit and veg.

Mary Procession

Traditionally May is the month of Mary and we celebrated this with a May Procession, followed by liturgy for the whole school led by Father Tim. This year we took a gamble and carried our statue of Mary (thank you year 6 bearers for being so steady and reliable!). Our children brought plants to honour Mary and to brighten our school grounds. Many thanks to all parents and carers for their support.

Tri-Golf Tournament

Congratulation’s to our Year 4 golf team, who took part in the Tri-golf Tournament at the Purbeck school.

Five local primary schools entered this event and our Year 4 team took first place. The team worked very hard throughout this tournament and their fantastic teamwork and determination were a key factor in winning the event.
