Our Vice Chair of Governors, Mrs Brackpool, recently celebrated a very special birthday! As a thank you for the work she does for Pickhurst Academy and to wish her a happy birthday, we invited her in for a vintage style birthday tea! Staff, governors and our school council members presented Mrs Brackpool with individual cards and cards that their class had designed.
A slideshow from 1928 was projected onto the wall and music from the era played in the background whilst Mr Rampton delighted the children with some facts and inventions from that year. Afterwards the children chatted with Mrs Brackpool whilst enjoying some of the refreshments. It was a lovely experience and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. Please see some of the great photographs on Page 2 of this newsletter.
Please see the calendar on the back of this newsletter which shows the dates of forthcoming parents’ evenings. We will be using the online booking system as before and details of how to book your appointment will be sent out very soon.
YEAR 3 SURVEY … unfortunately, we did not receive many parental replies giving permission for Year 3 children to take part in the survey being carried out by Miss Parr, a Cardiff University student. Please see page 6 of this newsletter where you can read about her survey and, if you give permission, please complete and return the consent slip or email firstname.lastname@example.org Verbal permission will also be accepted over the ‘phone or at the office. Thank you for your support.
