We want to thank all of you for your ongoing support for our school and all that we do. We all appreciate your kind words and your appreciation for what we do and your support for all our ‘special’ activities and charity events. We hope you all have a lovely summer, let’s hope the fine weather continues.
Our Thank you afternoon in school is a way of expressing gratitude to the very many people who support our school…this includes those who give their time, their expertise or their other invaluable support.
This year we also said thank you for three generous financial donations:
- The local firm, Resilience, who made a second very generous donation so that we could refresh our stock of library books and reading books and provide some amazing new bookcases.
- One of our local childminders who made a very generous donation for every class to have new toys and games for those playtimes when children play in their classrooms.
- A grandparent, who was also a Silver Listener made a very generous donation that
- enabled us to enhance the resources used by all the children in school.
Another person who received a special thank you as part of the afternoon was Mrs Jones. I am sure many of you are already aware that she is retiring from the crossing patrol, a position she has held for the past 34½ years. In her role she has, over this time, ensured the safe crossing of thousands of children and many of you who are parents yourselves will remember her helping you get to school safely.
A representative from Mrs Jones’ employer, Cormac, attended the afternoon to present her with a 35 years’ service certificate. Our children presented her with flowers, a card and a framed painting, which along with a school plaque expressed our heartfelt gratitude for her service to the whole community from everyone at Torpoint Nursery and Infant School. We wish both Mr and Mrs Jones a happy, healthy and long retirement.
We also have to say goodbye at the end of this school year to members of our school’s team who are moving on to new adventures and challenges. We are sure you join us in wishing Mrs Barry, Mrs Edwards, Miss Fenlon, Miss Foster, Mrs Osborne and Mrs Waldock every success in their future endeavours.
Finally, goodbye to all the children in Year Two and we wish each of them all the best for the next steps in their educational journey. We look forward to welcoming everyone else back on Thursday 6th September for what we know will be another fantastic year.
