Do you speak Farsi, Dari and Pashtu?
The city has welcomed in a number of Afghan families who are likely to be here for a number of months. The local authority have asked if there are any parents in the community who speak Dari, Farsi or Pashtu who would be willing to go to where they are staying and help teach them some basic phrases in English and to understand a bit more about British society. If you are willing to help with this and for your details to be passed on to the team at the local authority, then do email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can pass your details on.
Did you know you get an extra Bank Holiday next year?
To celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, schools across the country are having an extra Bank Holiday (the official bank holiday is during the June half term holiday). The majority of schools in the city are going for Tuesday, 3rd May 2022, and so this will make that a four-day weekend for families as the Monday is also a bank holiday.
Want to help serve the school through the Parents and Friends Association?
Our Parents and Friends Association do a wonderful job of supporting the school. They are looking for new volunteers to help with the refreshments rotas and fundraising. Over the past year they have raised funds and paid for gifts to the students at Christmas, reading books for KS3, and outside equipment for our new sixth form centre. They make a huge difference. If you are interested in joining, please email the Chair of the PFA, Rosa Morato, on email@example.com. They are particularly looking for a new treasurer so if you have skills in that area they will no doubt be interested to hear from you.

Did you know your daughters represent both the school and their families on the way to and from school?
On Friday I received the following message from a member of the public.
“Dear St Anne’s,
I would like to compliment you on the thoughtfulness, awareness and politeness of your students.
I regularly walk my 5 year old son home from school and the only students that will walk single file, stop and let us past on a narrow bit of pavement and are not glued to their phones disregarding everyone else are your students.
They are a credit to your school and to their parents/carers. I hope you and your school have a lovely weekend.”
My thanks to those anonymous pupils and to all our pupils who demonstrate our LSU values of hospitality and warm relationships wherever they go.
