South Marston C of E Primary School Newsletter – Nov 2009

Charity for others

We had a very busy start to the new year at school and held a number of events for charities, both local and we had a great Harvest festival in October at the Church.

Thank you to all of the children who brought in food for the Swindon Food Bank.

We have also had a Jeans for Genes day this term and collected £106 for research into genetic disorders.

The School Council have also decided to support an appeal for Christmas shoeboxes full of presents for families in Romania. We are collecting items until 20th Oct and they will be distributed in Dec to the Romanian families by a charitable organisation.

We have recently had planning permission granted for an extension to the front of the school to include a kitchen and dining area. Work will hopefully be starting in November and it will be a 6 month project.

We would like to thank all that have been involved in the building project so far and I would particularly like to thanks the governors who give of their time so generously and I appreciate their support tremendously.

Computer course

We are hoping to run a taster computer course starting beginning of November for ‘silver surfers’ and parents. It will be a 6 week course, 1 hour a week and we have been granted funding and so the course will only be £5 total.

Please contact the school if you would like further information.


We now have the facilities to photocopy in both colour and black and white on A4 and A3 paper. If any members of the community would like to use this resource please contact the school office.

Christmas preparations will be underway after half term and we will be posting all of the dates on the school website.

Please have a look at the school website as we have lots of photographs of each class doing many different activities.
