Erewash in Bloom Morley Hayes October 2023

We are so proud of our heads and deputies who represented our school on their first public appointment. The children attended the Erewash in Bloom presentation for the best school garden. We didn’t win but we are always winners because our school garden is filled with our school values all year round.
We enjoyed meeting the Mayor of Erewash and looking at all the amazing photographs of the different gardens in the area. We then decided to explore the beautiful grounds of Morley Hayes. We spotted lots of beautiful flowers, plants and herbs and took the time to reflect on our experiences. We then went in to have some light refreshments and have our first official leadership meeting. We have some amazing ideas that we can’t wait to share. 
Thank you to Mrs McGuinness for entering us in this competition and for leading the afternoon it was great. 

Kay’s retirement gift from school finally happened.

POINTS OF LIGHT AWARD

 

Thank you to the many people who have congratulated me on The Points of Light Award that was presented to me by our Derbyshire MP, Mrs Pauline Latham OBE, MP on Fri 14 Apr 2023 at the Spondon Conservative Office.  The personal letter from the PM predominately referring to my Welfare work on Remembrance in reference to the WWII crashed Wellington Bomber W5795 in Stanley Village, Memories of Stanley Village Trust (MOSVT), but also mentioned my long Service to RBL Poppy Appeal since 1966 and I am still a serving and fairly active Poppy Appeal Organiser since 2003, and it also mentioned the Derbyshire Submariners Newsletters I have produced since 1997 as SOCA Derby, thence Submariners Association Derby and from 2011 Derbyshire Submariners.  However, I must stress THIS AWARD IS NOT JUST TO ME, it is for ALL OF YOU, who support the various Ex Services events I organise or attend, and proving, YOU ALL ENSURE WE DO REMEMBER THEM.

 

 

Yours Sincerely

Respecting our beautiful world

School was closed for the day On Friday 10th March because of snow. The children were encouraged to send in their snow photos. It was a day to be with family and to appreciate the power of the weather. Some people were stranded when travelling, others lost power to their homes and some of us worked from home to keep safe.

We thank you God for our beautiful world. 

Panto day!

We loved our school trip to the Panto this year to see Aladdin. Our children showed amazing respect as a fantastic audience. We are very grateful to Derby Live for helping us to keep our children safe and allocating us some great seats. The children lived out our school values from the moment they left school to their return. The bus drivers complimented us on their manner each child remembering to thank them. The children then returned to school and our collective worship team unpicked the whole experience making some very strong links to the Christmas story. The children showed respect by thanking their staff members and Sam for arranging the whole event. 

School nurses supporting each child being unique and wonderfully made by administering the flu vaccine.
