World Book Day Menu March 2017

World Book Day Activities and Lunch Menu

World Book Day (WBD) celebrations begin on Tuesday 28th February with D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read). The idea is that whatever a class is doing at a particular time, regardless of subject (with the exception of swimming), they stop and either read independently, with a partner/group or listen to their teacher read.

On WBD, Thursday 2nd March, the concert hall will be decorated in the theme of the 'Great Hall' at Hogwarts ready for prep and senior students to enjoy a mid-morning feast, whilst the Reception Class will enjoy their own tea party in the Upper Prep Library as they celebrating the works of Julia Donaldson.

We have  asked parents make a small donation to Book Aid International, with the suggestion being £1 - with donations collected during the morning.

Chef Simon and his team have kindly prepared a book-themed menu that will be served as normal and include yummy things such as Pirate Potato wedges, Roasted Carrot Broomsticks and Magic Polyjuice Jelly Shots!

There will also be a Book Fair selling a range of books suitable for Prep and Senior students. Prep Parents must collect children first and then sign-in at the POD in the main foyer.

The Book Fair will be Open from 3.30pm until 4.45pm on:

Thursday 2nd March
Friday 3rd March
Monday 6th March
Tuesday 7th March
Wednesday 8th March

A Readathon, raising money for Birmingham Children's Hospital and our school libraries, will be launched during assemblies, week beginning 6th March - information to follow after half term.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Shock, Horror, Thor attacks new Head Teacher!

On Tuesday 14th February, the Holy Trinity community were reeling from shock brought about by the unprecedented attack on the school’s new Head Teacher for the day – Miss Daisy-J. Mrs Leek-Wright, who had resigned her seat had to leap into action to prevent Thor from attacking Miss Daisy-J with his hammer. Those who know the power of this chosen weapon will realise the disregard shown for her own personal safety as Mrs Leek-Wright grappled to ensure that the blow did not hit its mark. Miss Daisy-J showed incredible bravery as she took the decision to continue in her role as Head Teacher and was quoted as saying ‘it is important not to be intimidated by bullies and show others that although it is hard, we can overcome our difficulties’.

Mrs Leek-Wright had to be revived from her ordeal with six cups of extremely strong coffee and expressed both her admiration for Miss Daisy-J in her determination to continue and her concern for the uncharacteristic behaviour shown by Thor. Mrs Leek-Wright said that she thought the attack had been brought on by a misunderstanding – Thor springing into action against what he clearly thought was a hostile take-over of the school by Miss Daisy-J. The alternative theory is that Thor was cross at not being able to jump on the cars earlier as he was collecting funds in aid of the school minibus and felt that the experience was ‘a little tame’.

However, after the reviving coffee for Mrs Leek Wright, juice for Miss Daisy-J and a lollipop for Thor the trio shook hands and ended the morning the best of friends – though Thor was heard muttering that if sufficient funds had not been raised for the minibus he would be back (as he disappeared in a haze of blue and silver smoke)…

Holy Trinity School News - A New Head Teacher

We had a new head teacher for Valentines Day. Miss Daisy-J and Mrs Leek Wright walked around the whole, entire school. Following is a report of the day as written by Miss Daisy-J.

In the morning we went into lessons (Senior and Prep school), to see what classes were doing. In the gym Year 10 were doing P.E with Miss Gunn, learning about the heart and how it works.

Then we went to year 7, half of them were doing pizza making and the others were doing art (graphics).  They were absolutely brilliant I think the art would  make wonderful history. From the senior school we went to prep into year 2, one class were doing assessments (tests) and the other class was creating lovely valentines poems. After visiting Year 2 we went up to year 5 who were doing an Egyptian dictionary, they were using chrome books to find definitions, they were doing wonderfully! From year 5 we went to year 4 (Miss Dais-J’s year), to see them creating valentines art work - they were absolutely wonderful. Finally, we went to year 3 and we got a whole class photo  - year 3s were very excited to have a new head teacher!

After my walk around the school I was rewarded by a juice and cake. It was a yummy, delicious chocolate cake. Now it’s the afternoon and we’ve been signing LOADS of things. About trips, people coming into school- even Lego man! I also got to do a valentines card. Then it’s the end of the day BOOOOOOOOOOOO. I loved being head teacher for the day.

Head For The Day Daisy Takes Charge

Our 'Head for the Day' winner, Year 4 student Daisy J, is well in to her daily tasks with the support of superhero Thor and able assistant Mrs Leek-Wright.

No executive orders have been passed so far, but as we update you the day is young and there's still many meetings, letters to dictate and sign, students to meet and classrooms to inspect, as well as the many other 'Head' tasks Daisy needs to supervise before the end of day.

Thank you once again for everyone's enthusiastic and generous support of this fundraising 'Minibus Campaign' initiative.

Movie Night A Huge Success!

Movie Night on Friday 10th February was a huge success thanks to everyone who came and joined us.

An excellent night had by all, with pizza during the interval and a sell-out of pic n mix at the start. The surprise film was Finding Dory - with 120 children gathered and helping raise funds towards the purchase of a new minibus for the school.

The final total is not yet in but it looks like we have raised an amazing figure and a profit set to be in excess of £400 which is absolutely amazing!!!

Thank you to everyone for all your support.
