Welcome to another Pedmore newsletter. It’s the end of the first week back, and now we start to think about all things Christmas. There are some dates for some events below that you need to be aware of and some other information to let you know about. Have a great weekend!
Parent Governor Elections
Thank you for all your responses in regards to our request for parent governors. We had five people interested in becoming parent governors, which is more than we’ve ever had before! After the final ballot and votes were counted we can announce that we have two new parent governors – Miss Saunders and Mrs Glover. Thank you to everyone who put themselves forward, and thank you to everyone who voted; we had over 300 votes for the five nominations.
Keep the date…this year’s Christmas Fayre is Friday 24th November. More details next week.

October October – Katya Balen
This book is about a girl who lives in the woods with her dad. When she turns 11 the woman who is her mother comes back; her dad falls out of the tallest tree and lands himself in hospital. October, and the woman who is her mother, have to leave the woods and head to London. October is not sure at first but she shows herself that you can make friends and do things you haven’t done before. She was showing other people that she could do anything. Ages: 9-11. Five stars! – Poppy, Year 6

Thanks to your wonderful donations for our harvest collection for the foodbank, we collected 249kgs of food and 71kgs of non-food. This is enough to provide 498 meals and 71 toiletry packs. Thank you so much!

This week in school we have been thinking about remembrance and what that means. David, from St Peter’s, took our remembrance worship on Thursday morning, and our Year 6 ambassadors had prepared a worship for today. Unfortunately, due to an IT malfunction, they were unable to share everything they had done, which is a huge shame. Here is a poem they wrote as part of our worship and one of the prayers they shared with everyone.
Wear poppies with pride
To remember those who sadly died.
On November 11th at 11 o’clock,
Remember the hearts that sadly stopped.
Those who died,
Because they fought to save our lives.
Please grant eternal rest to our loved ones who have passed away. May their souls find comfort in your loving embrace.
