What an exciting week we’ve had at Chad Vale! Our Harvest Assembly on Monday showed us some of the people who help us in school, and reminded the children that we also ‘harvest’ good will, kindness and support from lots of different people. The children listened intently to the story of the ‘Giant Onion’ and then sang 3 of their favourite harvest songs. The School Council interviewed Mrs. Carol Lyndon this week about her charity work with Ghandigram Orphanage. She was overjoyed when they informed her that the Council had decided to support Ghandigram for a further year and told us all about how our previous donations have helped the children in the orphanage. The interview was filmed for Chad Vale Television (CVTV) and will be displayed on the big screen after half term.

  3. 3. We are kind to each other. (We don’t hurt other children, make them sad or play-fight.) We play games safely. (We don’t somersault on the ropes, or run/slide up or down the rubber crumbing.) We use the equipment properly. (We use rackets and bats for sports, not for hurting others.) We use the paths and play areas. (We keep off the gardens and planted areas.) We stay where the teachers can see us. (We don’t hide in the bushes or climb trees.) We look after our environment and use the bins. (We don’t throw our rubbish on the floor!) 3 Please note these rules also apply before and after school!
  4. 4. Yesterday our Chess Team played in a local tournament against St. Patrick’s and St. George’s school. All of the Chad Vale competitors played well, winning or drawing most of their games...and Chad Vale ended up winning! A fantastic result– very well done! Here are the machines laying down the final layer of tarmac on our almost completed MUGA. To see them in action, visit the website and download the video from the Chad Vale Television page! Over the last two days the fence has been erected and the only jobs to complete now are the marking of the different pitches on the tarmac, and the seeding and planting of the areas around the MUGA! 4 Please make sure that your child’s name is on all school uniform!
