Christmas card competition 

QPA have been invited to take part in a Christmas card competition set by Mosiac (the recent charity we supported). Your child will have a sock template if they would like to take part and we would like all entries to be in school by 9am on Tuesday 17th October so we can send them off on Wednesday. On the back of the entry, please include your name, age and school. 

We look forward to seeing all of your brilliant entires.

Quiet Area Opening

The quiet area is now officially open! Emma, our PTA chair, cut the ribbon in front of the school council, who designed the area, staff members who supported and James Stout, who built the furniture. We will be adding some sensory features to the area, as well as some reading books and quiet games. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the transformation of this area happen, especially to Mrs Welch for her outstanding guidance of the school council and the PTA team.

Crazy Sock Day

There are lots of wacky and wonderful socks on display today at QPA. The reason behind these colourful items of clothing is that we are raising money for Mosaic, a charity to support Dorset children who have suffered bereavement in their lives.

 

Year 6 Football

Today the Year 6 boys took part in the Predator football tournament at the Littledown Centre. In total, 23 schools attended the competition. Although we didn’t progress to the semi finals, the level of effort and teamwork from the boys was outstanding. Most impressive was the maturity the boys showed. They shared captaincy, chose positions and took it in turns to be substitutes, all independently. Our goals were scored by  Dylan and Darren. Next up is the league fixtures which will start in the next week or two.
