Junior 12/6/15

12 June 2015

Dear Parents

Today we celebrated Ruth’s (at Pewley Down) Birthday. Ruth is one of those rare people who has the gift of making everyone feel valued and happy. She has a natural empathy and compassion which extends to both children and adults. As well as fronting the reception area at the infants, Ruth also knows and cares about all the children. She also works as my P.A.; organising my diary and fixing my appointments, doing her level best to make sure I see the right people at the right time in the right School – quite a task! It has been a real privilege for me working with her.

I would like to clear up a bit of misinformation. Firstly, the tale of the two Toms! Tom Paulton is a trainee teacher at Kingston University, currently doing a teaching practice in year five. When he has qualified, he hopes to be working in a Special School for Children with learning difficulties. The other is Tom Everard, who trained as a teacher here, about 6 years ago. Since then he has worked at Pirbright Junior School, currently in year six. This Tom has been appointed as a teacher in year six, who will also be responsible for assessment throughout the School. So the Tom in year five is a different person from the Tom that has been appointed to our full time teaching staff.

This is a very busy time of year and during this time we will be celebrating the careers and contributions of the staff who are leaving, as well welcoming great new members to our exciting and highly skilled team. This is a time of changes for Clare and
me but both of us are completely aware of God’s guiding hand upon the work and future of Holy Trinity Pewley Down.

With best wishes, Richard

Tonight is our Circus themed Summer Fair. It’s going to be a lovely warm evening, hopefully we’ll avoid the showers – perfect for an ice cold drink from the bar and something from the BBQ. There’ll be a candy wheel, candy floss, popcorn, jolly jars, beat the goalie and much more. The Fair runs from 6-8pm. Don’t forget your raffle ticket stubs, so they can be included in the draw this evening. We look forward to seeing you there.

There will be NO PARKING at school, so please walk if possible. If you do have to drive please park considerately.

A massive thank you to everyone who has helped so far and will be helping this evening and especially to Cavenders Sales & Lettings and Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shop, Guildford Friary.
