Never one to rest on her laurels, Mrs Wiltshire has added a further accolade to her growing list of recognitions with a recent placement in the Highly Commended category of the 2015 Kent Teacher of the Year Awards run by the Kent Messenger Group.
With over 400 nominations for the Award, Mrs Wiltshire’s Highly Commended status is a positive endorsement of the value the School community places upon her work both in and outside the classroom with her work both in Year 4 and as the Walking Bus Coordinator.
The professionalism and dedication that led to her nomination make it easy to forget that she is a Newly Qualified Teacher in her first year of teaching!
In the same week that Mrs Wiltshire received her commendation, the School also learned that as a result of her coordination of walking initiatives, we had been awarded the prestigious Platinum 2015 Green Travel Mark. This status is awarded to Schools which set the standard for green travel and is an endorsement of our passion and long tern commitment to eco-friendly initiatives within the School itself and the wider community.
Our Parish Church, Our Lady Star of the Sea, runs a Bingo Club for our senior citizens in the Parish hall on Wednesday afternoons.
We need some volunteers who could spare 2pm until 3pm one Wednesday a month. The job is to make tea and coffee for about 20-25 people. Everything is provided - you just need to turn up, prepare, deliver and clear up (fill the dishwasher).
If you would like to help, please telephone John Darby (our School Chair of Governors) who is the organiser.
Please note the change in the school term dates. The last day of the school year for children will be Thursday 23rd July as Friday 24th is an inset day.
