Parents’ Prize Draw for attendance!
As a school our average attendance is very good. We have regular prize draws to reward those children whose attendance is high. However, we are now introducing a prize draw for parents as we recognize your part in getting the children to school and on time. At the end of term there will be a parents’ prize draw. If your child has very good attendance and arrives on time, your name will be entered into a draw to win one of two £25 Marks and Spencer vouchers. We will let you know the two winners before Christmas!
Here at Medmerry School we take great pride in being an Eco School.
We save energy with our new doors, windows, insulated roof and solar panels. The children work hard all year round to grow plants and vegetables in our amazing allotments. We recycle almost everything we can and compost all out fruit peelings each day. All the children remember to turn off the lights and taps and as a school we try to think of the wider community. We can all do our part and help the planet!
All of our school community has been on this eco journey and we are proud to announce that we have just been awarded our second green flag for all our hard work and commitment to being green.
Thank you to Mrs Plackett who has co-ordinated all of our Eco School work, often giving up her own time to do so, and to everyone who has played a part in helping us to achieve this award.
We will continue to think about new ways to keep our school green with the help of our new green team, the Busy Bees!
Years 1 and 2 took part in a castle room competition. The children made their castle rooms out of recycled materials as a homework project. We were very impressed with the results. Representatives from Henry Adams came to judge and present the children with trophies and rosettes. The children were excited about their rooms and loved sharing them in class.
The children recently took part in a skipathon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. This charity is literally close to many people’s heart as we probably all know someone who has suffered from heart problems.
Each child skipped for one minute and the number of skips they managed was recorded. Some children managed well over 100 skips in that time! It was very well supported and we managed to raise the magnificent total of £866.10!
Thank you to Mrs Edge for organising this very successful event.
