New Learning Ambassadors
Congratulations to the following children who have been elected by their peers to be Learning Ambassadors for our school.
Beech – Louis
Willow – Jacob
Hazel – Zach
Oak – Amber
Maple – Maya
Holly – Lily
They will meet regularly with Mrs Lamb to discuss whole school issues and how we can further improve the school. Last year the learning ambassadors did an amazing job: they improved reading by introducing a new rewards system and the reading tea parties, they helped to plan the Snuggledown, they met with Karen Thompson from Chartwells to discuss meals and the tuck shop and they carried out a Health and Safety Audit. I am sure our new ambassadors will continue to make a big impact on what happens in our school.
We have had a wonderful start to term. The children are looking really smart and have settled into their new classes really quickly. We have many new children and parents who have joined us and I know you will give them a very warm welcome. Parents will be receiving more information about the curriculum and class arrangements next week. Remember there is lots of information on our school website which is updated regularly.
We are really pleased to welcome Mr Rowan Dunstan as our new PE apprentice. He will be supporting staff with sport across the school as well as supporting in classes in the mornings.
Over the summer a lot has been happening in the school: Beech class has been refurbished; new energy efficient lighting has been fitted across the school; ceiling grids and ceiling tiles have been replaced in many of the rooms; insulation has been fitted above three rooms; the SEN room , corridor and cloak areas have been decorated. The school is looking lovely and I am very grateful to Mrs Chattaway for all her hard work over the summer ensuring that the school was ready for the start of term. Classrooms are also looking great—teachers have worked hard to make them as inviting as possible for their new classes.
I am really looking forward to another year at Troon, seeing our children make progress and flourish. I appreciate the support of our parents, our community and our partner schools in securing the best outcomes for our children.
Kind regards
Mrs Lamb
