Children from our school choir finally took part in the performance of Ahoy! which they have been working towards for months. What a super evening! Children from local primary schools, ex-St Mary’s pupils, a large adult choir and a super band, as well as dancers from the Ranger School of Dance, all celebrating the recovery of the Mary Rose with sea shanties and new music. Thank you as always to Jay Buckle for leading us in this uplifting venture.
Last Friday disaster struck our partner school in Uganda when the year 1 and boy’s dormitory roofs were severely damaged by torrential rain and storms. We are asking for extra support to help them to repair the damage swiftly. Sadly, many books and other resources were also lost.
Help with the fundraising by making and/or buying cakes after school on Friday 7th April @ 3.15pm.
Thanks to all the children (and parents/grandparents!) who supported our Fairtrade Breakfast this morning. They enjoyed hot chocolate, juice, bananas and toast and jam. Key Stage 2 tomorrow! Also, thank you to the staff and PTA who provided and organized the breakfast.
Congratulations to all the St Mary’s musicians who took part so successfully in the Rotary Club young musicians competition. Thank you also to the members of the school choir for performing at the competition.
Please read this page to find out about St Mary’s PTA and the upcoming events they have planned. Offers of help and support will be very gratefully received!
Well done to years 5 & 6 who put on such a memorable carol concert at St Edwards church, with carols, readings and songs, accompanied by a school orchestra and the Purbeck Arts Club Choir.
