Friday 17th Nomvember 2017: Children in Need
St Gildas' took part in a Pyjama Day to raise money for Children in Need. It was the ultimate dress down Friday! Children and staff loved coming to school in their finest onesies and we had great fun all day. We raised £388 so a huge thank you to children and families for their continued support in our fundraising efforts.

Congratulations to our year 6 team of parents and pupils on their successful cake sale. We thank them for working hard to bake and sell their delicious products, which helped to raise money for the school. Thank you to all those who helped support the school through buying their products!
Welcome back Mrs Hood!
We are delighted to have Mrs. Hood back with us, after her year long maternity leave. We also thank Miss O'Donnell and Miss Bergin for their hard work, in her absence.
Today the school welcomed Pete and Rachel from A-Life, a company committed to raising the profile of healthy eating and physical fitness amongst young people. They delivered workshops, using educational games to teach the children the importance of looking after our health. Later in the day, they took part in an active workout session. Pictures are to follow.
Children can log in to the A- Life Team's website to complete the 7 Day Healthy Challenge via this link.
The Stations of the Cross
The whole school celebrated a very reverent reflection for The Stations of the Cross on Wednesday afternoon. After congregating in the school hall to begin the reflection together, we journeyed to each classroom to observe their interpretations for each station and pray together. The children behaved respctfully and with reverance and all agreed that it was a very special way to both prepare for Easter and end our Spring Term.
Governor Day 9th February
This Thursday we will be welcoming our Governors into school. They will have the opportunity to visit lessons and meet with pupils and staff. There will also be an opportunity for parents to meet Governors from 2:45pm-3:15pm in the school hall, where they will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to ask a question, please email the school office on email@example.com and the governors will reply to you via email.
Year 6 enjoyed an exhilarating Pendarren 2017. All totally embraced the adventurous, challenging spirit of Pendarren. All triumphed in the activities: exploring the grounds of Pendarren house on our first afternoon; canoeing along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal; climbing the high ropes in the Pendarren grounds; walking from Langland Bay to Caswell Bay and then hunting for crabs and starfishes in rock pools; exploring the River Lightning (Afon Mellte) from its source to its journey underground forming magnificent caves and then seeing its splendour and power in a raging waterfall; finally climbing local Brecon mountains on our last morning. What a trip of friendship and togetherness with great support and leadership from the Pendarren staff and St. Gildas' staff.
Pendarren is under threat of closure by Haringey Council - if you are asked to support the campaign for Haringey to keep Pendarren please do endorse it as it is such a VALUABLE resource for ALL Haringey pupils (past, present and FUTURE) - irreplaceable!
A record of the daily news from the Pendarren adventure, including photographs, can be found in its own news section here on the site.
Welcome home Year 6!
A rain sodden evening didn't dampen the excitement, as family and friends eagerly awaited the return of our year 6s from their residential trip to Pendarren. The coach eventally arrived, after a slow end of leg journey through the London rush hour. We were finally reunited with our very excited and tired pupils and staff. We welcome you all home and wish you a very relaxing weekend.
A plea for help!
Are you a driver and free between the 26th-30th May? If so, you might be able to help our valiant bikers 'Team Lycra' on the second leg of their fund raising journey. The team plans to cycle from St. Gildas-De-Bois in western France to London, a trip of 300miles! Planning is still in the early stages, but if you are interested and think you can help, please see the full document at the bottom of this page for more information.

Year 6 Advent Service at Westminster Cathedral
On Wednesday 7th December 2016 both Year 6 classes were invited to Westminster Cathedral for the annual Angel Song Advent Service organised by the Catholic Children's Society as a thank you for the support St. Gildas' gives to this charity annually. The celebrant was Bishop John Sherrington - Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster. The cathedral was filled with many children from schools across the Diocese. The sound of them all singing carols was uplifting and they were totally beguiled by the rendition of the Nativity story and were in a state of awe and wonder when a real donkey and sheep paraded down the aisle! A special way during Advent to prepare for the gift of Jesus.
Come to the Christmas Market!
November's Literacy Challenge
Congratulations to Freya from 5P, who won the November Literacy Challenge! This was the first in a series of regular literacy challenges which will be set by Miss Evans to keep our writers busy!
Freya wrote a very emotive poem called 'One Day, One Year, Changed Everything'. The poem can be found below or on the Literacy Page.
We look forward to lots more exciting Literacy challenge news in the future!
Class 5A completed the season of Assemblies for the Autumn Term, with their Wednesday Assembly on the theme of Advent and Forgiveness.
The children explored getting prepared for Christmas in the context of preparing yourself, forgiveness, penance and peace.
We thank all parents and carers who have been able to support our assemblies this term and look forward to seeing many of you at the Christmas Market and/ or the December Nativity Production.
Today the children had the opportunity to experience African Drumming with djembe drums! Abass and Mershack from One Drum led a workshop with each class through the day. All children experienced playing the djembe drum alongside Abass and Mershack, and took part in a question and answer session to find out all about the drums and their role in African culture.
Please see below for a link to the One Drum website.
