Thanks go to the Rev Harriet Every who stepped into the Reverend Paul's shoes to lead our Easter Service. With rain lashing down and wind taking limbs off tress we made the decision to hold the service here at school rather than at St Michael's. Harriet is a great new friend for the school. We will be invoting her back oftern I think. The children sang beautifully and I loved the Year Fours poem. They did a terrific job. Thanks also to the many parents and carers who came along to celebrate with us - it was lovely to have a hall full of people, we are so grateful for the love and support that the school recieves from the community.
Easter Acrostic - by Hawthorn Class
Easter is a time of happiness and sorriw
As bright as the morning glow of the sun after the darkness of the night
Sadness and joy
Time to consider the life and sacrificae of Jesus
Enjoy life filled with love and forgiveness
Respect Jesus' commands.
Festival of Hope Football
Huge congratulations to our team who represented us beautifully at the Festival of Hope football tournament at Okehampton College earlier this week. They behaved impeccably, passed precisely and made a real impression on the competition. We think thatoverall we may have come second to Exbourne Primary but we really don't mind about the result - it was a terrific day. Special mention to MAx who scored the only goal in the sweet vitory overr our old rivals Okehampton Primary.

Easter Themed Drawing Competition
A message from our friends at Whiddon Down Village Hall.
The hall committee are holding a drawing competition to celebrate the coronation.
Children might like to get busy over the Easter break and create a piece of art to celebrate the crowning of our new king.
Why not work on this over the holidays. I'm sure they will give us more details including where to send entries and what we might stand to win after the break!
