Congratulations to Evie Fairman from St Joseph’s School who has been selected to carry the Olympic Torch through Bodmin on the 19th May 2012. Evie was nominated because of the work she does with the national heart charity Little Hearts Matter; namely mentoring its younger child members to help them cope with living with a serious heart condition, as well as organising networking events for member families based in the South West to have some fun together as well as have the chance to discuss the shared problems and issues they deal with daily.
Little Hearts Matter offers support and information, and raises awareness of those affected when a child has only half a heart, due to conditions such as Complex Pulmonary Atresia, Tricuspid Atresia, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) or Double Inlet or Outlet Ventricle. Evie was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a condition which affects around 400 babies born each year. Evie is pictured above.
As part of their nursery rhymes topic, the foundation stage learned how to build a wall for Humpty Dumpty. Many thanks to Mr Kevin Worth of R Worth and Son Builders for showing us how to trowel on the cement and make sure the bricks are level. Pictured are the Nursery and Reception builders, who all added a brick with Finlay Worth helping Humpty to sit still.
Nursery places are available for children aged 3+ in September 2012. If you would like to find out more about St Joseph’s School Nursery or arrange an appointment to view the school please contact Rebecca Walker on 01566 772580 or firstname.lastname@example.org
On 23rd March seventeen pupils entered the Landrake cross country event, one of the most gruelling races in the County. You go through farmers’ fields, woodland and battle through a salt marsh over a three mile course. The day was beautiful, the course mainly dry and the sun shining.
All the runners set a good pace and were not phased by competing against 500 people. Of our seventeen all completed the course. The best results of the day were Michael Barton gaining the bronze position. Lulu finished 7th and Molly 8th in the girls’ competition.
Well done to Michael Barton, Alex Hellyar, Harvey Fry, Indie Douglas, Max Wilkerson-Hunt, Samuel Mills, Archie Sparrow, Luke Smith, William Heard, Bruno Hargadon, Lulu Howells, Molly Barton, Tilly Cartwright, Catherine Nuta, Charlotte Nuta, Hattie Loe, Persephone Sparrow, Mrs Watson and Mr Marsh for completing the course. Thank you to all the parents who assisted with transport and supported the children.
