Dear Parents

This week has been something of a celebration for us at school. In the same week that our U12 Netball Team became National Netball Finalists, we heard that our talented pupils have achieved 45 scholarships and awards to date – with children gaining awards across sport, music, drama, DT and academic subjects – to some of the finest schools in the country. Please do read through the rest of the sports reports further on in this Newsletter as there are many other wonderful performances and achievements to read about and Mrs Paxman, Mr Naylor and all of our team coaches, deserve a special mention for working so hard with all of the teams this season.

I would also like to congratulate our Year 3 pupils for the wonderful curriculum assemblies that they have shared with their parents this week. Acting, singing and dance is thriving at Heath Mount and I look forward to welcoming many of you to our forthcoming Year 6 & 7 play, creaTed.

Next week, is our annual Easter Bonnet Parade. I hope many of you will join us for this and for our Easter Service, House Cross Country and Awards Assembly. Please note that the Easter Bonnet Parade will now take place on Tuesday 27th and not Wednesday 28th March.
