Monday 12th – Friday 16th May

Snippets from Chard School History:

I was priviledged to host a visit of three Old Cerdics last week – two of whom survived the Great Fire of Chard School in 1959 when Wyndham House burned to the ground (the wing that extended beyond our current dining room and art room).  They wandered around the school recounting their stories and describing vividly what each room was used for – some of which had changed little since their time.  We must never forget how fortunate we are to have this history and to be able to pass it on to future generations.  Uniti Vireamus.

Message from the Friends:

Dear Parents

The deadline for Bags2School is Wednesday 14th May so now is your chance to have a wardrobe clear out and help raise money for the school.

The sign up sheet is filling up for the film afternoon on Saturday 17th May at 2pm when we will be showing Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 in the Chapel. So please come along – friends, relatives, brothers and sisters are all very welcome to come along too.

We’re still looking for donations of plants and seeds for the Nursery Vegetable Garden so if you have any surpluses in your greenhouse please bring them in.

We’ve made a start with stocking up the wet weather games boxes but we’re a bit short on games for the older children so if you have anything suitable that you would be willing to donate, we’d be very grateful.

And lastly planning is now underway for this year’s Summer Fair on Saturday 7th June from 12 noon – 2pm. We will be sending out further details along with raffle tickets in your child’s book bag later this week. 

We look forward to catching up with you over a coffee on Friday mornings.
