Dear Parents and Carers

Garden Party

The Garden Party on Tuesday was such a wonderful affair, even the weather looked after us – we couldn’t have picked a better day! The Country-dancers entertained us brilliantly, thanks to Mrs Sweeney and Mrs Keegan for preparing them all so well, please have a look on the website to see the photographs. Thank you so very much to all those of you who were able to come along to join in the fun, it was great to see you there.

I’d like especially thank our wonderful cook, Jo, who prepared and organised all the delicious picnic lunches for the children, it was brilliant that we could all eat outside together. And to Mr Kendal who allowed us the use of his bouncy castle for the day – the children were delighted that this was one of the afternoon’s attractions. Incidentally, Mr Kendal has also kindly offered to give the school a donation should anyone connected with school choose to book his bouncy castle for a future event.

Thanks also go the our lovely Lunch Time Ladies, to Angie our fabulous Site Manager and to Gordon our wonderful Crossing Patrol (amongst many other roles), all of whom gave up their time to join the school in celebrating this wonderful afternoon together.

Message from Mrs Dutton our English Subject Leader

The week after half term, on Tuesday 14th June, we have a published author, Frank English, visiting school.

He has published seven popular books of fantastic adventure for children of all ages. He will talk to the children about writing; why he writes, where he gets his inspiration from and how his work is turned into books.

He will deliver a whole school assembly and then work with individual classes in ‘Writing Workshops’. He loves answering questions from the children about what he does so please encourage your children to think about what they want to know.

At the end of the day, there will be an after event book signing allowing children, staff and parents to buy books at a discount price. This will be held in the school Hall from 3.30pm.

Rugby World Cup

The U20 World Cup descends on Manchester during the month of June, 7th to 25th with a number of teams being based locally – details of games and locations can be found on the RFU website.

Mr Hamer (William’s dad Y6) has told me about the following information, which I thought you would like to know:

Trafford MVRFCC on Finny Bank Road, Sale are hosting and looking after the Irish U20 team and to welcome them to the club, and to Sale, the club are hosting a welcome ceremony on Sunday 5th June from 12pm until 2pm where there will be Irish Dancing and an Irish pipe band. The junior rugby section will be playing games ably helped by the rugby stars of the future (Irish U20 squad).

The Mayor and dignitaries from the RFU and the Irish community will also be in attendance, there will be a BBQ and the bar will be open From 2pm, following the Ireland U20s welcome event, there will be a game of Gaelic Football for the All-Britain County Championship between Lancashire and Yorkshire. It promises to be a ‘full blooded affair’, with a bit of football hopefully played too! Spectators are warmly welcomed to stay to watch the game.

I’m sure it will be a great afternoon!

And finally

Thank you to the teachers, and all the hardworking staff-team at All Saints’ for your dedication and commitment to our wonderful children. All Saints’ is very blessed to have you.

And most importantly – thank you to our fabulous children, for being so very special, for working so hard and for being so gorgeous. I am so proud of you.

I wish you all a very happy, sun-filled and fun-filled half-term holidays and hope that you all manage to have some time together with you families and friends. I look forward to seeing you all again in two weeks.

With many thanks and very best wishes

Anita Fagan
