CHELWOOD FOOD BANK

This week, some of the children from the School Council went to Morrisons to spend some of the money that we raised during Lent so that we could donate some items to the Chelwood Foodbank.  The children chose the items themselves and worked out how much to spend on each so that we did not exceed our budget.  We then visited the Food Bank to donate the items and some additional funds from our Lent fundraising.  The food bank were very grateful for our donation and showed the children how the food bank works.

Gambian School Children

When we revamped our school library, we sent our old books over to the school in Gambia where we sponsor 2 children.  The books were taken over by our old caretaker, Al.  The children were delighted to receive them and sent a message of thanks.

Attention all Nursery Parents! 30 hours childcare for working parents.

From September 2018, St Ambrose will be offering 30 hours free childcare for those children whose parents are eligible to claim.

In the event that you are not eligible to claim the 30 hours free childcare, you will still receive 15 hours of free childcare which will be in the form of 5 mornings per week from 9am till 12pm. 

30 hours funded childcare is intended to support working parents with the cost of childcare. It will enable them, where they wish, to return to work or to work additional hours.

St Ambrose also offers a “top up” facility where your child can stay until 3.30pm and the charge for this will be £10 per afternoon session.

First Aid accreditation

Well done to all the children in school who took part in First Aid training.

FORTNITE

Please see the attached poster for advice and tips regarding your child playing Fortnite.

MOSAIC PROJECT

We decided that we were going to enhance the main entrance of the school with two mosaics. The children have all had some input into the design and have worked on the mosaic itself over the last few weeks. I hope you enjoy the results. One mosaic is on the wall on the way into school and the other is inside the reception area.
