I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support with our Christmas productions this year. As ever, I am very proud of the children’s achievements and I know from seeing your faces that as well as being proud of your own child, you shared my feeling that the school continues to demonstrate all that is good about Langold.
This year four separate plays took place to ensure that the maximum number of children could be offered a speaking part. Please be assured that the funds raised from ticket sales goes towards pupil-focused activities such as visiting theatre companies and we also use the funds to buy prizes and rewards for the children. The PTFA do a marvellous job to supply as many costumes as possible for the plays but as you can imagine, with 250 children to clothe we rely on the support of parents to make these events happen. Thank you to those who supplied a costume, it is much appreciated.
The Christmas raffle will be drawn next week and as you will know the funds raised from it will be used to buy a further set of Kindle Fire HDs. The children’s love of reading and interest in books has really developed since the PTFA donated the Kindles and they are keen to supply more. Thank you once again.
This week, further Christmas activities have taken place with the choir participating in the Portland carol service at St Anne’s church. Once again, the children sang beautifully and reduced me to tears! They will also be singing at St. Luke’s Church, Langold on Friday at 4:00pm if you would like to join us for a traditional carol service.
With Christmas almost upon us, our final week in school will bring Christmas lunch on Tuesday with almost 200 children and staff taking part and then each class will have a special Christmas party.
Once again, may I thank you for your continuing support.
