We would like to extend our best wishes to our Year 6 children as they move on to their new Secondary Schools in September. Congratulations as well for their wonderful performance of “Shakespeare Rocks”. We hope all the parents and family of the children enjoyed the show. Thank you also to the parents who have been involved in school life for many years and who are leaving us this year. Your help and support has been greatly appreciated.
Today we also say goodbye to Mrs Bletcher, Mrs Garbett, Miss Nicholson and Miss Purcell and would like to thank them all for being part of our school community.
Mrs Bletcher has been with us for over three years, working with children in Year 6, accompanying children from Year 2 – 6 to competitions across Telford and running after school clubs. She is leaving us to concentrate on her role as a governor at a local school as well as being a Duke of Edinburgh Award Assessor.
Mrs Garbett has been with us for six years working with children across KS1. She will be a much missed member of staff and we wish her and her family all the best for their move to London.
Miss Nicholson is has been cheerful and enthusiastic member of staff, teaching Year 5 for the past four years. She is moving away from Shropshire and we wish her all the best with her future plans.
Miss Purcell has only been with us a short time but is now leaving us to start her teacher training; good luck for the next three years.
It has been another busy year at Coalbrookdale & Ironbridge and as always we appreciate the help and support we receive from the school and local community. Thank you:
• To all the parents for their support throughout the school year, supporting the children at Christmas plays, music performances, special assemblies, school trips, sporting events and so much more;
• Parents who volunteer in school and help run school clubs for the children;
• The Friends of Coalbrookdale for all their hard work at fundraising events to raise money for the school so that the whole school community benefits, from the Christmas Pantomime to books for the school library;
• All the Governors for giving up their time for meetings and their visits to school.
• The Greenwood Trust for the help with clearing the forest school area and Eco Garden area during the year
• The Co-op for their donations to the school BBQ
Thank you to everyone who brought in their money for today’s mufti day. We raised £184 for the British Heart Foundation.
Thank you to everyone who came to the Summer BBQ and the Leaver’s Disco, and especially to those parents who organised the events. Together we have raised £720 for the Friends of Coalbrookdale, on top of monies raised directly by the school who provided the food for both events.
The Friends is a registered charity whose charitable objects are to ‘advance the education of the pupils in the school’ which we do by fundraising and working with the school staff to agree how best to use the money raised.
We will be having our AGM in September and need more committee members. It isn’t an onerous commitment and more details about what’s involved will be shared in the new term.
In the meantime have a fantastic summer!
Mrs Angus wants to wish all of her students a wonderful summer holiday. She will start back in September week commencing 9th September.
There will just be a couple of spaces available for new students who would like to have music lessons. If your child is interested please contact her on 07816958048. Also if you want to book any summer lessons do phone or text her on the same number.
Have a good holiday everyone.
