School Photographs
Dear Parents,
 
Once again Graham Atkins Hughes has kindly donated his time and his skills to ensure that we have a photographic memory of each class and of the whole school.
 
In the next few days the photos will be sent to you free of charge however we would appreciate a donation towards our St Paul’s Park Community Fund. This Fund has been established to bring improvements to the space we call “the Green”, which is and has been used by our children and our community daily and for many years.
 
We very much hope we can all contribute to the upkeep of this space, and make significant improvements that will benefit the whole neighbouring community.
 
Please send your donations to:
 
HSBC
Account name: St Paul’s Steiner Project 2
sort code 400333
account number 01206176
 
With regards to the photos, we respectfully ask that these are not posted or shared via social media.

Outdoor News
Thanks to the hard work of all the children the Michaelmas celebration saw some major transformations of outdoors spaces in and around the school. As you may already know St Paul's received several hundred pounds worth of gardening tools from The Conservation Foundation, a charity who work with prisons to have old tools refurbished and then donated to school and community gardening projects. Without these tools, the work completed on Tuesday, or future projects we have planned could not happen.

We can express our gratitude and support for the project by making a small donation, either by text or internet as follows:

Help needed

Tomorrow, Saturday, 10th October, Mr Brokenshire will be building two additional raised beds to be positioned and filled with compost next week.

If any parents would be available for 2 hours from 10am to help it would be very much appreciated.

Then on Wednesday 14th October the children will be moving a delivery of compost from the school grounds, into the new raised beds. Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate clothing.

To help, we will need additional wheel barrows. If any could be loaned to the school for the day it would be much appreciated.

With thanks,

The Teachers of St Paul’s

 
Michaelmas Festival
Classes I and II

Dear Parents of Kindergarten and Class I and II,
 
Thank you very much for your responses to our travel survey. So far we have 83 respondents. 
 
Currently results show that whilst over 50% of children currently travel to school by bicycle, over 80% would like to travel by bike. We hope that this helps to strongly justify some council funding for additional cycle storage at the school.
 
If you haven't filled in the survey, please do so before it closes on Monday 12th October.

This may help the school qualify for extra funding from the council for a new bike shed.

Class V appeal



Last Wednesday, ladened with heavy bags, Class V took all your donations to North London Action for the Homeless and they were delighted with our contribution. We were shown around and saw the kitchen where all the food is prepared. We were given an insight into what sort of meals they cook, and we were told that in the winter months when it is icy cold, St Paul's Church Hall, where NLAH are based, offer night shelter to the homeless. We were very inspired by the work that they do. and are grateful for all the support and generosity from everyone. For those who are interested in continuing to support them, they are in need of mens clothing, underwear, socks, and sleeping bags.

Once again, a big thank you from Class V!  

Jumble Appeal

Please pick-up Jumble flyers from reception and deposit them in your local area. You can also download fliers to print here.


Please start searching and collecting all your unwanted Clothes & Shoes, Toys, Books, & Bric-a-brac.

Jumble can be brought into the school and left in reception from Monday 12th May

The Jumble Sale is on Saturday 17th October and we need people to bake sweet or savoury dishes in recyclable  or disposable containers for the Jumble Café.

Please do not bring any underwear, dirty or ripped clothing or any broken Toys or Books  (they do not sell & it creates extra work)
Curtains request

Please can anyone help with sewing simple white cotton curtains for the windows and door in the SEN room and in Class VI as overlooking the Nave which can be very distracting. We will supply the fabric.

Please contact Pam if you can help.

Thank you.
