This has been another
year where we can be really proud of the children’s achievements.
Looking back over the school calendar, I see the regular highlights
to the school year— “Countdown to Christmas” in December,
spring term lit up by the children’s performances in the Harrow
Dance Showcase and lately, the successful Outdoor and Adventure
week, including Year 6 visiting France again.
At this time of
year all the class teams put up a display of their Golden
Moments. If you get the opportunity, have
a look up and down the corridors to see the pictures. They
demonstrate an amazing range of work and a rich variety of
educational opportunities. There are photos of school trips,
of the children with visitors to Alexandra and of children
simply enjoying their time at school. But I particularly like
those photographs which show individual children concentrating
hard on their work.
I want to take this opportunity of thanking all the staff
for their hard work and creativity.
Please come to the school barbeque on Thursday 21st
July. The school prizes for 2010/2011 will be awarded
and we will celebrate the end of the school year together.
This page will
be updated with a list of Prize Winners, soon!
Cole has completed her graduate teacher course and
was awarded the grade of Outstanding. Well done Camille. It
has been a long journey for you and we are proud to have you
on the teaching staff for 2011/2012
We say good bye to sixteen children in Year 6, as they move
on to secondary school. We wish them luck and will miss them
our chair of governors, will be stepping down at the end of
Barry has contributed energy and wisdom to the Governing Body
as well as organising annual work parties from Barclays Bank
to do community service with us.
We also say goodbye to five members of staff:
and Emily, who have worked with us this year
as graduate teaching assistants, are going back to college
to get their Post-graduate Certificate of Education, which
will allow them to become teachers.
and Charmaine Bromfield have been class teachers
at Alexandra for seven and eleven years respectively. Norma
is retiring at the end of this school year, while Charmaine
is taking up a new job at a special needs school nearer to
her home. We wish Norma a happy retirement and wish Charmaine
luck with her new job.
Finally, we say
goodbye to Sue Stalley. Sue has worked at
Alexandra for fourteen years and was Deputy Head until just
last year, when she took semi-retirement. At the end of this
school year Sue retires for good (although with luck we will
tempt her back with the role of Chair of Governors!) It is
almost impossible to put into words how great a contribution
Sue has made to Alexandra School. Children and staff alike,
have the fondest memories of Sue as a teacher and a colleague.
School re-opens for the new school year on Friday
Have a great holiday!
