Bronte School Headmasters Newsletter

11th October 2013

Today we are looking forward to Harvest Festival assembly and to welcoming Major Carton from the Salvation Army and Mr. Baldwin from Churches Together in Gravesham. Thank you so much for donating the various items of food, including this year the fresh food for the Food Bank in Coldharbour Road. All the different classes have prepared songs, stories and poems and I am grateful for their contributions. Last Monday we had our Bronte Friends AGM and first committee meeting of the year. Mrs. Dio (Karam and Taran) has taken over as secretary; Mr. Maynard (Ben) remains as vice-chairman and Mrs. Egan as treasurer. As chairman, I was delighted to have the suggestion that our next meeting should be at 4.00pm, conveniently at the end of the school day, to encourage a wider attendance on Friday 15th November. There are some exciting developments being planned for the school by Mr. & Mrs. Carter and it was thought appropriate for Bronte Friends to target some fund raising. The 2014 Chateau trip meeting was well attended and most informative. The photographs of last years trip are now on display and well worth a viewing on the downstairs corridor. .. And on Tuesday next week we are welcoming again our French visitors from St. Pierre School in Calais. We really appreciate this link and the visits to and from Calais. The children learn so much from each othernot forgetting the adults. We are so fortunate in having such a fluent French speaker in Madame Baldacci (and Mr. Carter). The rest of us try very hard and succeed some of the time! Plans for the day include maypole dancing and cricket and an afternoon on the riverside. I will have a report and some photographs for you next week. Because of the St. Pierre visit the Ward Hendry individual photographs have been moved to Monday 21st. .. But there is a meeting for Reception parents at 4.00pm on Tuesday to give you more information about Forest School which starts for Reception class after half term. Distributed today with this newsletter is the order form for lunch on Bad Hair Day (Friday 25th). Please return the form by Monday 21st. Many of you will remember Kornelijus Davidonis who was with us in Year 3 last year before moving to a school in Ashford where he lives with his family. We had an e-mail from his mother yesterday with an attachment of photographsof Kornelijus and the twins who were born on 24th July. It was good to hear all the news.

Years 3 and 4 had a very special and informative day out on Tuesday at Lullingstone and Eagle Heights. Mr. Gard (Charlies father) was our official photographer and his photographs give you a feel for the success of the day. Again there were some very favourable comments made about the childrens behaviour.
