Message from Mrs Brocklesby
As another week draws to an end, thank you to the children who went away, following my assembly about Talents, to demonstrate how, ' We do our best by following Jesus.' At Saint Ambrose we live out our Mission everyday and aim to go the extra mile in everything we do. As we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King this Sunday the Gospel reminds us that every act of kindness done to someone else is also done to Jesus and it will be rewarded accordingly.
I believe we can all teach kindness as it is a fact we learn to be kind by receiving kindness. The best places to learn kindness are at home and in school so this week in assembly we will be thinking about how we can show kindness. Please email email@example.com if you would like to share your son or daughter's acts of kindness, they will be celebrated in classes.
You will notice this week the weekly round up is written by Miss Brewer, this is because Mrs Laskey is ill. I am sure you would like to send her your good wishes along with the staff and children for a speedy recovery. We are looking forward to seeing her back in school soon.
Message from Miss Brewer
Following the parents evenings held last week we have emailed a parent questionnaire to all families via Arbor. Year 3 and Y6 parents should have received theirs today. You can also access the questionnaire by clicking the following link.
Your time to complete the questionnaire would be very much appreciated.
THERE WILL BE NO CELEBRATION ASSEMBLY ON FRIDAY 1ST DECEMBER
Regular attendance at school means that your child will make the most of their education and improve their chances later on in life. At St Ambrose, good attendance is of high importance and we strive to have at least 96% attendance. Please help us with this target. If you need any support, then school is here to help so that your child can get the very best out of the education we provide.
We will continue sending out regular push notifications about attendance so that you are aware if you child falls below our 96% target and we are working with Louise Howles, our Education Welfare Officer to support us with improvements.
Mass Times at St. Ambrose Catholic Church
The things achieved by the children outside of school are incredible.
Last week at the remembrance parade, Violet laid the 1st Kidderminster Girls’ Brigade wreath along side her dad who is an Army veteran.
