As a school we have completed our first week of our reading challenge. We have joined many schools up and down the country in the ‘100 million minutes reading challenge’. In our first week as a school we have managed to read 57,824 minutes. This is fantastic! After the first day, St Vincent’s were ranked 500 out of 526 schools. After our first week, we have managed to move up to position 230 out of 526 schools!!! Remember to record the number of minutes you have read each night in your reading record. The more you read the better chance we have of winning the competition……£5000 to spend on books for our school. Well done boys and girls, keep going!

I would like to inform parents that Mrs Hamer will be leaving St Vincent’s this Easter. Mrs Hamer has been at St Vincent’s for almost 20 years and in that time has provided a high level of education and care to all the children she has taught. I am sure you will join me in thanking her for all the dedication, commitment and support she has shown whilst at St Vincent’s and in wishing her the very best for the future. During the Summer term, the children in 2V will be taught by Mrs Hilton.
