28th October celebration and parents’ consultations

Dear parents,

On Saturday 20th October our school will celebrate the 28th October anniversary at St Marylebone 6th Form Centre, which is located approximately behind Waitrose, at 14 Blandford Street, W1U 4AZ. Parents of the pupils who will participate in the celebration (Reception classes, Y1, Y3, Y4, GCSE 1 and GCSE 2) are warmly invited to attend at 10:00am. All other pupils will be involved in classroom activities closely related to the OHI Day theme. All pupils are requested to be at school at 9:30am  and to wear white top/shirt and blue/black trousers/skirt. Parents’ consultations with the Form teachers will follow at approximately 11:30am and all parents are invited to attend.

You are also very welcome to attend the special service that will be held at St Sophia’s church on Sunday 28th October at 11:30am. Our school will be represented by the flag delegation and as many pupils would like to accompany the flag.

Thank you Filippos Mandilaras for an amazing assembly!!

Why do you write? Which pencil do you use to write? When are you going to stop writing? Why do you write children stories? How do you come up with ideas for your books?

These were just a few of the numerous questions that our students, young and older, had for the well known children’s books author, Mr Filippos Mandilaras. Filippos, guest author of the Children’s Reading Club (http://www.ekivil.org/), came to our school on Saturday and offered us a hugely interactive assembly answering children’s questions openly and honestly, and giving us an insight on how a book is written. It was such a special day for all!

 

 

 

 

Temporary change of venue

Dear parents

On Saturday 6th October Nursery classes, Reception classes, Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4 and Y5B will not be housed at the main site of St Marylebone School but at St Marylebone 6th Form Centre, which is located approximately behind Waitrose, at 14 Blandford Street, W1U 4AZ. The remaining classes Y5A, Y6, GCSE and A Level will be housed as normal on the main site. Classes will run as normal from 9:30am -1:15pm and parents will drop off and pick their children up from the above addresses. Parents of Reception, Nursery and Year 1 children are kindly requested to collect their children from Blandford street at 1:00pm. Parents of the remaining classes please collect your children at 1:10pm from Blandford Street and at 1:15pm from the main site. Please note that due to the above temporary relocation there will be some flexibility in drop off and pick up times to allow parents who have children attending classes in different locations to move between the two sites.

New rules and blessing ceremony

Dear parents

First of all I would like to express a warm thank you to all of you for your patience, understanding and generous support during the first day of the application of the new drop off and pick up rules on Saturday. I understand that it took longer to process people in the morning but please bear in mind that there were many new parents and children, many questions to answer and all our lovely students and families to welcome back after the summer break. I’m certain that with your continuous support things will run smoother the coming weeks.

I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to our blessing ceremony that will take place at the school theatre on Saturday 15th September at 9.45am. Parents who wish to attend are kindly requested to drop off their children as normal and then wait in the playground until called into the theatre.

Once again thank you for your cooperation!

A very happy school year to all!

Dr Olga Fakatseli
