Harvest Thanks.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Harvest Festival services last Friday or who donated items for Doncaster Food Bank. All of your generous donations have been passed on to the Church of the Good Shepherd to be taken to the food bank for use by Doncaster people in need of support.

Well done to the children who led the services so beautifully and especially to our Reception children who were amazing, especially as they have only been in school for a few weeks.


Goodbye to Mrs Fitzpatrick

Our school cook, Mrs Fitzpatrick retires today after many years with our school. She will be spending time with the children and staff over lunchtime. We would like to say a big THANK YOU for all she has done and wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement.


More staffing news

At half term we will also be saying goodbye to one of our LSA’s, Mrs Houlihan. We would like to thank her for all her work and send our very best wishes for the future.


Coming up soon . . .

We will shortly be launching our annual Operation Christmas Child Christmas Shoebox appeal. You are always very generous with your donations and we are really proud of the numbers of boxes that we send every year. This year there are a few changes to what we are allowed to include in the boxes so please look out for our launch letter, which is coming out just before half term. This will have all the details you need if you would like to contribute to this very worthwhile cause.


Doncaster Free Press visit school

This week we had a visit from Doncaster Free Press, who will be running an article about our curriculum topics this half term, which are all based on caring for the environment. A group of children took the reporter around the school and told her all about the learning that has been happening. She was amazed at their knowledge and enthusiasm for the topic! Look out in next week’s Free Press or in the Free Press on line. Well done to all the children involved!
