STBSA Fundraising 2016/17
We can’t believe another school year has flown by so quickly. We had a fantastic Summer Fair (see overleaf for money raised) and had many other wonderful fundraising events in this school year such as the Winter Fair, Discos, Cake Sales, Ice Cream Sales, Bag2School.
As a result, this year you’ve helped raise an impressive £13,000 for the school!
Mr Campbell identified some projects for us to support at the start of the year and most of the STBSA spend this year will go towards the funding of air conditioning for the upper junior classrooms.
We appreciate it can be difficult for all of us to support the fundraising efforts considering family, work and all the other commitments we have in our busy lives. However, it’s absolutely fantastic to see everyone coming together to enhance both the school facilities and the Thomas Becket experience for our children. Give yourselves a clap on the back!
We have a vibrant and enthusiastic school parents association but this can only continue with your help. We need new parents to join the committee next year so please enjoy your well-earned break and consider pitching in with the STBSA when the 2017/18 year kicks off in September!
Congratulations to all the children chosen to receive the Summer 2017 Golden Board Award.
Their work will be displayed in the entrance foyer by the school office.
To celebrate our school’s 50th Anniversary, the children have created pieces of art inspired by the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. The children enjoyed exploring artwork by Lichtenstein, Warhol and Oldenburg and designing their own sculptures and prints.
Our school hall became an art gallery for the afternoon and the work was enjoyed by many.

The exhibition opens.
Snapchat have update their app to include Snap Maps, a location tool that allows users to view the location of other Snapchat users. The app opts in to this automatically if you follow the ‘what’s new’ feed and therefore, to prevent people from knowing where you are, you need to opt out. This is called Ghost Mode.
Please see the videos on YouTube that explain more about the update and what you can do to keep yourself and others safe.
We had 10 eggs delivered on Tuesday. We are now very pleased to announce the arrival of 10 fluffy chicks. All the children will have the opportunity to handle and observe the chicks next week. Please see our school blog for the chicks’ adventures.
