I've never known a school in England to make much of a fuss of St Patrick's Day but, here at Chagford Primary, it was quite the thing. Under Ms Simpson's valiant leadership, Year Five pulled off a masterfull retelling of the life of the Irish saint complete with an astonishing sea voyage, savage sheep and some brilliant fiddle playing from Benji Chambers.
Special commendatin has to go to Rafi who played St Patrick himself with great aplomb. Benji B as the Voice of God was another highlight.
The fun didn't stop there. On Friday, St Patrick's Day itself, the Year Five children made little St Patrick's day packages to share with all the children in the school. There were a lot of Shamrock stickers going around the school.
A huge thank you from the PTFA for supporting our recent Bake sale. The total profit was a whopping £259.96.
We were overwhelmed by the generous donations of baked goods meaning that we had enough cakes to run the bake sale 2 days in a row.
We really appreciate everyone who baked, sent children to school with money and queued in the rain! Extra special thanks to Chloe and Harriet for running it too!
Celebrating the Earth - Wildflowers
Join us at the church on Tuesday 21st March for the next 'Celebrating the Earth' event.
This will be a short family friendly event in an inclusive multi faith setting. We'll think about all the gifts we recieve from wild flowers.
Our children have been practicing 'Country Life' to sing at the event. I really do hope to see as many children as possible at St Michael the Archangel at 5:30. Do join us.
