Our 30 day challenge returning to school next week will be excellent dinner hall behaviour. We want to encourage all children:
- to walk sensibly in to the dinner hall
- to talk sensibly at the dinner table
- to try and use a knife and fork correctly
- not to leave the hall still eating
- to tidy up after themselves
- not to swap food – this has serious implications due to food allergies
Your support is greatly appreciated, thank you.
What a fantastic response to World Book Day this year. We were amazed at some of the clever and original ideas created by the children – well done!
Our Junior Winners:
We had a fantastic time at Cardiff again this year. Children were brilliantly behaved and thoroughly enjoyed all the venues and activities. Da iawn pawb!
Our pupils had an amazing time at Glan Llyn this year and lots of comments were made about their outstanding behaviour. Not only that, staff at the centre were very impressed with the Welsh language used by all our children over the three days. Da iawn pawb!
The project is called The Art of Baptism and was started as a collaboration between All Saints’ Church and Victoria CP School, both Poyser Street. The aim is to create a lasting connection between the communities of the school and the church. All children have had the opportunity to take part.
The project was funded by the Parochial Trust and Father Sam Erlandson, priest of All Saints’ Church, has been giving talks to the children about baptism and what happens in other faiths.
Following the talks, Wrexham-based artist, Andrea Hilditch has worked with children from the school to create a large collage. The art work was then photographed and tiles were produced digitally. Year 5 and 6 children have begun to stick the tiles onto a board which will form part of a 3m x 1m mosaic mural to be finished by the artist and then installed at the back of the church behind the font.
The volunteers on the project were Fine Art degree students from Wrexham Glyndwr University, thereby creating another important community connection – Helena Poulakis, Alanna Woodfine, Caitlin Humphreys and Morgan Stubbs.
Andrea said, “The children have been fascinated by the process of working together to build a large piece of art. They’ve enjoyed seeing the progress and how it’s built up over the 6 days of working with them. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the project and it’s been a pleasure working with the school and the church. It’s also been great that I’ve had volunteers with me from the university so that they could see a community project in action and obtain some essential and relevant experience.”
Mrs Eccles, Headteacher at Victoria CP School said, “This has been a very special project between the school and church as every single pupil in school has contributed to the piece of art. It was also lovely working with Andrea as we have taught both her children. She is a fantastic artist and is highly regarded by our pupils and staff.”
These amazing children braved the weather today and took part in the St. David’s Day Parade. They sang and cheered with Welsh pride. Well done! Diolch parents for helping out – much appreciated!
