Newsletter No 038 – Friday 19 July 2019

Y2 Leavers

Y2 have had such a lovely afternoon at their party.  We wish them all happiness and success at their new schools.  Thank you very much to the Friends for organising this special event to mark the end of three years at Motcombe.

Thank you to everyone who attended the amazing Y2 show and for joining in the dancing at the end!

Thank you to the Friends for producing the beautiful Motsy Bears for our leavers.  What a wonderful memento of their time at Motcombe.

Staff Leavers

We will also be saying farewell to some members of staff who will be leaving to start new chapters in their lives.  We say goodbye to Janet Clayson, Laurence Lecomte, Donna Bartholomew,
Sarah Springate, Shirley Chagouri-Brindle, Lauren Backler, Faye Hunt and Vicky Wells.

We wish them well for the future.

This will be our last newsletter this year and I would like to thank you for everything that you contribute to the school.  We pride ourselves on the relationships that we have with our families and value your support.

A special and huge thank you from us all goes to Emma and Louise who have co-chaired the Friends this year and have worked tirelessly with the committee organising events.  Fantastic job!

Have a wonderful summer!
