Meet the Teacher - Tuesday 14 September
Thanks to everyone who came to Meet the Teacher on Tuesday and for your positive feedback. We mentioned Ofsted's ParentView survey and are grateful that some of you have already completed this. If you have a few minutes, please click here to access the survey.
Also, don't forget to check out Hertfordshire County Council's Free School Meals page here if you think your child may be eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant.
If you weren't able to attend Meet the Teacher, the PowerPoints from the evening are available here on our website.
Victoria School Association (VSA) Update
The VSA have sent out dates for forthcoming events this week. We hope you will all support them, as they do a brilliant job raising funds to enhance your children's experiences at school. This year the VSA will be funding a variety of projects including a termly bursary for every class teacher to spend, coach travel for each year group's external visit and (we're very excited that this will be possible again) the whole school trip to the pantomime in Aylesbury at Christmas.
Each class from Reception to Year 2 has elected two school councillors for this term. Well done to the following children:
Ash - Amber and Sonny
Oak - Phoebe and Theo
Beech - Barnaby and Lev
Cedar - Benji and Martha
Hazel - Amelia and Hugo
Rowan - Henry and Moana
They will be bringing ideas for ways of making Victoria an even better place to learn to fortnightly meetings with Mrs Crozier. The first meeting was today.
Macmillan Coffee Morning - Wednesday 22 September 9:00am - 10:00am
We're looking forward to seeing lots of you on Wednesday morning in the school hall, to raise money for Macmillan nurses and enjoy a coffee and home-made cake. Please note this is a change of date to the one in the whole school calendar.
Berkhamsted's Great Big Green Week
We're happy to support this nationwide celebration of climate change action, which is being promoted by Climate Change Berkhamsted. We'll be having our own green activities in school which include:
Remembering the three Rs (recycle, reuse, reduce)
Sharing 'green' stories
Switch-off day on Wednesday
Exploring our natural environments
Wearing something green on Friday (this is in addition to school uniform and might be a hairband, pair of socks or t-shirt)
There is also a whole range of things going on around Berkhamsted for you and your family to enjoy. Click here for a What's On guide to these.
