28 November 2014

Dear Parents,

I am thrilled to bits that Clare Brunet has been selected to be the next Executive Headteacher of HTPD. It was a very tough process for her and she came through with flying colours. However, I knew from when she decided to apply that she would be a great choice.

Clare really does have the skills to lead the wonderful, enthralling and multi-faceted organisation which is HTPD. She has a shining intellect which she uses to understand and process all the elements of young people’s education. Alongside this she is most definitely a people person who wants all children and staff to be successful and happy members of the HTPD family. She was a leading person in helping to form the precious values of the school and she will be true to these as well as developing a new vision which will lead the school into exciting new areas in the future. Clare is a committed Christian whose life and motivation is based upon her faith and so she will continue to promote the Good News of a life which gives a proper place to God in our school. Clare is particularly passionate about disadvantaged children and she will make this a big part of the focus.

These are all facets which I believe in and am so happy that school will be in her safe and skilful hands. In a few days I will have completed 25 years at Holy Trinity and I have loved, and continue to love the job. I thank God that someone has been appointed who shares that love, motivation and values.

The next two terms will give Clare and I the chance to work together to make for a smooth transition. Thank you so much for all your prayers and thoughts and support of this process. Thank you also for the great kindness and support you give to me. I know you will also give this to Clare.
With best wishes, Richard

24 November 2014

Dear Parents,

As Christmas draws ever nearer some of us start thinking about gifts. Others of you have been doing that since the last week in August if we are to believe the market research! I am feeling pretty pleased with myself as I have already bought a present for my wife, for two of my 3 grandchildren and the cards for all my staff here at HTPD (104!)

I was wondering what is the best gift we can give our children – so far I have only got a set of 100 ‘Beano’ postcards as a little present for my son. However, it is the things which money can’t buy which are the most important gifts they can receive. I think there are three or four things which will make so much more difference than the latest Xbox or ‘Frozen’ DVD.

Number 1 is always ‘being there’ for your children, this includes the wonderful gifts of time and empathy. In the 1950s John Bowlby introduced the concept of ‘attachment theory’. This tells us that humans (as well as other animals) only really thrive if they are nurtured by a main carer or carers who have a ‘deep and enduring emotional bond for them across time and space’ Bowlby 1969. Children who have good attachments can go on to make other good relationships throughout their lives.

The second is the gift of unconditional love. This again embraces time given and words of affirmation as well as touch. Children who are loved are able to feel love for others. If that love is unconditional, children have every chance of being stable, and once again, forming good and lasting relationships themselves.

Thirdly, I would suggest the gift of building our children up, resulting in children who value themselves and have a high level of self-esteem, This in turn leads to children who achieve the cliché ‘to be best that I can be’.

This is all very idealistic I know and we all have times of success and failure. The good news is that you can keep on giving these gifts all through the years of childhood and onwards after that!

Happy Christmas shopping!
With best wishes, Richard

Dear Parents,

Twenty five years is a long time in the same job and is becoming very unusual in the current employment situation. This is what Brian Terry has completed at Pewley Down School. He is now finishing at the school as caretaker and moving with Penny, his wife to a house by the sea in Suffolk. It will be a great location for Brian who loves running and the outdoor life. Many of you will be grateful to Brian for his care and for running the football club for so many years. If you would like to join in the gift for him, please bring your contribution to the Pewley office. We are holding a leaving tea for him next Friday afternoon at 3.15pm and you are welcome to that too. I know he would be
really pleased to see parents of his footballers over the years. We will not be replacing Brian. Instead, Julie, our Site Manager will take on his responsibilities and we have an excellent company taking over the cleaning. The only small part of the job we have not fixed up is snow clearing; if anyone is able to offer to do this vital but very occasional task please contact the HT office or email Julie direct on julieb@holytrinity.surrey.sch.uk.

Also moving on is Hannah Jezeph, but if we are all very nice to her she may come back after her time in Australia. Hannah is an outstanding teacher and she will be much missed. She is being replaced by Patrick Davies. He was on the Surrey school centred teacher training programme last year and did his second teaching experience in year 3 with Ginnie. He comes to us from Gosden House School in Shalford. He is a musician and will bring many other talents to HTPD.

Your child’s safety is of paramount importance to us and two special ‘weeks’ next week will focus our minds on this. The weeks are ‘Anti Bullying’ and ‘Road Safety’. All classes from R to 6 will be focusing on these two particular campaigns. I hope you will be able to reinforce these messages at home too. The revised Anti-bullying and Behaviour policies are available on the website. On the road safety note please would you remind your children to cross with the teachers at the top of the driveway at Addison Road.

Thank you so much for your co-operation in these matters.
With best wishes, Richard


Parent Consultations, Tuesday 18 & Wednesday 19 November: The parent consultations next week are an important chance for you to talk to your child’s class teacher about how well they have settled in. We would encourage you please to keep to the 10 minute time slot, but do ask if you feel you need a longer appointment on another occasion. Please come to the library/office area on arrival where there will be a list showing where the consultations are being held. Patrick Davies will also be attending the consultation evenings so all parents in Walnut class will have a chance to meet him.

Teacher-led clubs: Owing to the parent consultations, teacher-led clubs will not be running next week commencing Monday 17 November.

MUFTI, Friday 21 November: Next Friday is collection day for the school fair and children may come to school in mufti (home clothes). It will be mufti /fair collection day at both sites. More details in the FOPS section.

Parking

Christmas Fair - 7 December 2014 - 12pm to 2pm
Our Christmas Fair is approaching fast. It's always a fun start to the Christmas festivities, so please put the date in your diaries. We will have a Santa's Grotto, craft, seasonal games, hot food, mulled wine and mince pies and much more.

We really need your help with a few things to make it a success.

Donation Day - Friday 21 November - MUFTI day: You will be receiving a letter in your child's book bag today letting you know items we are collecting for stalls at the fair. This year we would be very grateful for donations of any of the following:
• Booty Bags (see "Help! What's a Booty Bag?" on the FOPS PTA section of the website
• Bottles
• Chocolate
• Second-hand soft toys
• Second-hand Books
Please bring any donations you are able to make to the School Playground on Friday 21 November. The children are allowed to come to school in mufti (home clothes) on this day.

WANTED: Father Christmas: The highlight of the fair for the children is undoubtedly a trip to Santa's Grotto. We try hard to ensure that this is a magical experience for the children. We are looking for two or three dads who would be prepared to put on the red suit and beard and be our Santa. (The santa suit and elf helpers are provided!) Please let Emily Bourke know if you would be able to do this (emilybourke@msn.com).

Stalls: Every year group has been allocated a few stalls to run at the Christmas Fair. Your class reps will be contacting you shortly to ask you to help for 30-45 minutes on a stall. There are almost as many timeslots to fill as there are children in the class so please volunteer. Many hands make light work!

If any enterprising parents or local businesses would like a stall at the Fair, please contact Emily Bourke.

Pewley Book Drive: Thank you for all your donations to the Pewley Book Drive. We have now met our target and have £2,000 to spend on new library books and reading books for the classrooms. The teachers want to ensure that this money is spent wisely and therefore they will be carefully selecting the books after Christmas. We will give you more details when the new books arrive in school early next year.

Cake Sale, Friday 21 November (Hazel Class) is cancelled. This will now happen on Friday 28 November.



Home School Link Worker group

If you would like to join the group please contact me in person or by e-mail on lucyc@holytrinity.surrey.sch.uk. Lucy Cray, Home School Link Worker

Lost

Dear Parents

Twenty five years is a long time in the same job and is becoming very unusual in the current employment situation. This is what Brian Terry has completed at Pewley Down School. He is now finishing at the school as caretaker and moving with Penny, his wife to a house by the sea in Suffolk. It will be a great location for Brian who loves running and the outdoor life. Many of you will be grateful to Brian for his care and for running the football club for so many years. If you would like to join in the gift for him, please bring your contribution to the Pewley office. We are holding a leaving tea for him next Friday afternoon at 3.15pm and you are welcome to that too. I know he would be really pleased to see parents of his footballers over the years. We will not be replacing Brian. Instead, Julie, our Site Manager will take on his responsibilities and we have an excellent company taking over the cleaning.

Cross-Country
Our cross-country season continues to go from strength to strength. The girls had a lovely run in the sunshine last Sunday morning at Manor House with 5 other schools. The U9's went first and what a pace was set. With some of them having their inaugural race, it was a very creditable performance. The U11's watched and supported the younger ones and then prepared to run themselves.
They all had a wonderful team performance achieving first place overall. Eliza Sutton secured a gold medal, Ayla Darcy, silver, Hebe Poole, 4th place and Meg Miller 7th. This was followed by U9, U10 and U11 cross country at Priorsfield which included 14 schools from across Surrey. Once again the girls performed brilliantly with Ayla and Hebe achieving gold and silver in their age category out of 78 runners and Eliza 5th place out of 78 in her age category. Well done to everyone.

Football
Apologies, there will be no Year 3 and 4 football on Tuesday as we have a home fixture.

Thoughts from a Year 6 pupil:
Sunday, 9th November, 2014
Today we went to a Remembrance Sunday Service at church. It was ok, but pretty boring. I get that we need to remember these people, but do we really need to be silent for a whole two minutes?! I was bursting to sneeze, but you can’t when everyone’s looking at the floor being all ‘serious’. In the end I did sneeze, and mum gave me such a look. After the Service she yelled: “Alicia Miriam Harriet Miranda Ross, you astound me!” Then she went into a whole speech about ‘respect’ and other stuff like that. I mean, why do these things even matter?

Tuesday, 14th February, 1915
It’s my 19th birthday today. I’ve told a few people, but we can’t celebrate much here. We’ve got tasks and drills and other things to do. I haven’t written for a while, but since my last entry, my friend Will has died. I can hardly bear to write it. He just popped his head above the trench for a second and then ‘bang’. He was dead. He was one of my only friends here. My brother, John, is in a different regiment. I haven’t heard from him for weeks. I fear for his life. I can hear the sergeant calling my name: ”Private Walter Ross!” I’d better go. Maybe today I will escape from this hellhole.

Tuesday, 11th November, 2014
Today at school we were researching soldiers who had died in the war, and I found out that my great-great uncle, Private Walter Ross, was killed in action on the 14th February, 1915. It was his 19th birthday. It made me think a little more about the people who have died in war, and that they laid down their lives for us. It’s horrifying, finding out that some who died were only a few years older than me. After school I went to see the Charlotteville War Memorial. I had made a poppy at school, and laid it, muttering.

“At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them”. Harriet Twigger-Ross, 6SR

Poem by James Bolus, 6SR
Rotting Like Rats
Left to rot like rats, shivering under empty sacks,
Stumbling on in mud to our thighs,
The shot of a gun and a piercing cry,
Bombs dropping down from the sky,
Deafening bangs, serve and die.

Looking at the memorial deep in thought,
Why was it necessary for these men to be gone?
Greed is the cause of all this sadness.
We’re privileged unlike those who fought for us.
They died for our freedom, they died for our might.

Stumbling on all through the night
Though shot and shell, through mud and hell,
They gave their lives to make Europe right.

We hope that all those who came to the Family School Disco before half term enjoyed the evening. The event was a sell out and we raised £1,200! Our thanks go to DJ Katie (aka Lucy Larkin's mummy) and to Hannah from Boogie Pumps who donated her time to teach us some new dance moves (www.boogiepumps.co.uk). Ingrid Timmerman (www.ingridtimmerman.com) took some fabulous photos in the Photo Booth. If you ordered any photos, they are ready for collection from the School Office.

Christmas Production Rehearsals
The children should have collected schedules but I can print some more off. Rehearsals are held between 3.30 and 5pm, in the Chapel, and, as it is a devised piece, for the next week assume that your child is needed for all rehearsals. In the last 2 weeks we will be able to be more specific but this year the production involves most of the cast for most of the time! In the final week the children will be working in their house groups only and this is clearly marked on the schedule. Keep an eye on the door to 4S...any changes will posted there. Thank you for your patience and co-operation. SM
