Congratulations to our 40 cross country runners who took part in the Catholic cross country event at John Fisher School on Thursday 12 November. In all ten schools competed and St Thomas Becket were just pipped at the post to earn 2nd place overall.
While all the children performed superbly a special mention is deserved for Kacy Stumke (5/6 girls) and Gracelyn Kendeck (3/4 girls) who gained second place in their respective races against fields of 100 runners.
A big thanks to Miss Shaw, our PE leader, who trained the team in the lead up to this event.
The children of St Thomas Becket Catholic Primary School in South Norwood were treated to a very special assembly this week as local author Ciaran Murtagh dropped in to talk about the art of writing a story. Ciaran has written a range of successful children’s books (Dinopants and the ‘Genie’ series to name a few) as well as being involved in writing scripts for numerous children’s Television programmes such as the animated Mr Bean. Through a fun and interactive assembly Ciaran gave his top tips on writing a great story and still found the time to open the school’s new library with the school council present at the opening ceremony. Many of the library books have been purchased through the fund-raising effort of the Parents’ Association and the school looks forward to the library continuing to develop as a place where the love of reading is fostered for all the children.
Well done to our BECKET AWARD winners for summer 2015. The children were awarded this award for demonstrating some of our Becket values which are outstanding Behaviour, Excellence in work, being Considerate and Respectful, always being Keen to improve, Exceeding expectations and being Truthful and Honest.
