Last Saturday, our Westfield pupils took part in an area Cross Country competition. We had over thirty pupils taking part and we had 5 pupils who made it into the top 15 in their races - this was no mean feat as there were between 50 and 100 children running in each race. I came to watch (no running for me!) and was really impressed by the enthusiasm shown by all of our pupils. It was not the best weather either with rain falling steadily and the ground was very muddy – not easy conditions in which to run. Thank you to Mr Woodward and Mr Farrell who organised this for our pupils and were both soaked by the end!
We are looking for another Parent Governor to join our Governing Body. We already have two parents who are school Governors but should have three. This is a really important role in a school as Governors help make decisions about our pupils’ education and how our school is run. If you feel you would be able to attend 6 meetings a year and play an active part in the strategic direction of Westfield Juniors, then please contact me through reception and I can give you more information.
SCHOOL COUNCIL BRING AND BUY SALE
Yesterday, our very proactive School Council held a Bring and Buy sale in the gym. They made a brilliant £85 in the 20 minutes we have for break-time. Well done to all!
Also yesterday, our wonderful PTA organised two Valentine’s Discos – one for lower school and a later one for years 5 and 6. This was a real fun event, organised by volunteers to make sure that our children have fun and a treat. Our children enjoyed the disco. I saw some fabulous dancing; staff as well as pupils... Go Mrs Cheney!
As well as a Valentine’s Disco, Mrs Chambers’ class assembly was all about LOVE and was brilliant! It was Romeo and Juliet (with a twist)... Don’t say we don’t teach the classics.
I hope everyone enjoys the half term break. Best wishes,
