We have had another great week at school and also a super end to the week. We recognise the daily efforts of our children, indeed,every day there are Caught Moments whereby we witness the determination of so many and also the manner in which they approach their work and demonstrate Values . There are too many highlights to mention but this week's Blog will offer some specific examples.
We all heard today in assembly about two of our Year 6 members - Caleb and Keely, who, when some of their classmates needed catch up on a data base task, took time to expertly show their friends the skills that were taught during the session - their partner teaching was excellent.
We also " Caught" Charlotte in Year 3 who looks beautiful with her new shorter hair style, having given her cut length of hair to charity to support the making of wigs for those who need it.
Our dedicated Swimming team members who will represent our school and county at the Urdd finals in Cardiff tomorrow have given hours and hours of free time to the sport in order to reach the level of excellence that they have acquired - we wish them Pob Luc , to us they will be the winning team .. regardless of medal table results!!!!!!!
The highlight of the week for nearly all of us has been about Ellie, who has used a wheelchair for many years, before more recently using two sticks to aid her walking. She wanted to learn to walk unaided before leaving Prendergast in a couple of years and had set herself the target of trying to walk with one stick before the end of this academic year -although it was her dream to walk before her 9th birthday in a few weeks time!! Today, our whole school family watched her take independent steps across the hall during assembly! What an inspiration, proving to all of us that if you work hard and are determined to succeed - your dreams can come true!!
Have a good weekend all!
