Firstly, I would like to personally thank the community for their support in buying tickets for the school’s ‘Chocolate Raffles’. Money raised from the chocolate raffles is going to be used to improve our library and reading provisions in school. Thank you for the ink cartridge and foreign currency donations too – both of which continue to be collected in school during the summer term.
Before the Easter break our Year 5 and 6 children completed their DAaRT course – learning about keeping themselves safe and reacting responsibly to different social situations as they grow up and move onto secondary school – and then took part in their DAaRT Graduation. The Year 5 and 6 children also took part in an informative ‘Flooding’ talk with the Canal and River Trust. Mr Scott introduced the whole school to a ‘Neuro-diversity Week’ where the children learnt about the variety of different ways in which they might learn, react and behaved to various situations. Finally, in the week before Easter, our children led the school’s Easter Service at Holy Trinity Church in Everton – singing traditional Easter hymns and performing dramatized readings for parents and carers.
Everton Primary School had quite a bit of success in the sporting arena before Easter. The Year 3 and 4 boys did incredibly well when finishing fifth at a tournament at Doncaster Rovers’ stadium, whilst the school football team – made up of both boys and girls – won a keenly contested match against Beckingham Primary School 8-4.
In exciting news following the Easter break, the school has a new look! We have had the corridor and hall painted and modernised and the children were very impressed upon their return. They were equally delighted with our new ‘Willow Dome’, which was kindly donated to school by Mrs Lee and put together by PTA parents and carers. The willow dome will give the children a quiet place to relax and reflect during break times.
