Equipment Donation!!!!!!!!!!!

We we’re extremely blessed this week to receive a lovely donation of footballs, hoops and skipping ropes!

These were donated to the school by Rob Sargent, CEO of Acorn and John Payne Estate Agents. Mr Sargent toured the school last week and was so impressed with the behaviour and character of the school that he very kindly donated the equipment!

This has put a huge smile on all the children’s faces!

We would like to once again, express our deepest thanks to Mr Sargent.

Bible Donation

We were extremely grateful to Stanley Holder (OBE) for the donation of 70 bibles this week. Mr Holder was the great uncle of our very own Mr Chown and sadly passed away at the end of last year.

With funds raised through his estate and in accordance with his wishes funds were allocated for this generous gift and help our children in their journey of faith.

A huge thank you to the extended Chown family.

Choir support St Christopher’s Hospice!

Happy New Year to everyone from the Staff and Governors of St Saviour’s!

I just wanted to start the New Year by spreading the fantastic fundraising achievements of our fantastic choir in the run up to Christmas. Led by Mrs Robins the choir raised an amazing £1900! Well done!!!

Below is a copy of the thank you e-mail from Nicola at St Christopher’s Bromley – 

Dear Mrs Robins

Thank you so much for bringing two choirs of pupils from your choir at St Saviour’s RC Primary school to sing once again for St Christopher’s Hospice at The Glades on Wednesday 13th and again on Friday 15th December. 

I’m very pleased to let you know that the families of the children and the people shopping in the Glades were very generous once again.  On the Wednesday we collected a fantastic £873.66 and in the two hours we were there on the Friday, a truly amazing £1,018.65 was raised for St Christopher’s Hospice.  These are splendid amounts and I am so grateful to you and your pupils who sang and performed so beautifully and enthusiastically – they are a credit to you and the school. 

I will post out two certificates out shortly recognising your achievements, which I hope you can display somewhere at the school.  I hope you will come back to sing for us again next year.  I will also to my best to ensure we get a good day booked in Lewisham.

With best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Kind regards,

Nicola
