Dear Parents, Students and Staff
One more week to go! Then we are done for this term and 2020 as far as being in school is concerned. You have ALL done marvellously and I cannot say it enough. And now Christmas at Canbury has arrived and so I know we are on count down.
We've had another busy week, not helped by the atrocious weather on Thursday with everyone confined to barracks during wet play. But as usual we kept calm and carried on. Next week is sooooo busy that I was exhausted just READING the Christmas week timetable! There is so much to do and remember that we have included it further down in the Newsletter. Do please check that your child has the right equipment for each day next week. You have the weekend to get ready!

Ms Littler would like to say well done to Jasmina and Emily for their beautiful card making.
Year 8 has started mindfulness training as part of the wellbeing curriculum. In their first session they learned about attention and how it's like a torch light because you can direct it at different things. In addition, said Miss Chorazyczewska, it can be likened to a puppy because it constantly wanders around and doesn't stay where you want it to.
But we all know, that mental health is not extra curricular or indeed, just one year group 'thing'. So all years continue to work on their mental health, spreading awareness of the need to look after ourselves, body and mind. Miss Chorazyczewska asks: "What are YOU going to do this weekend to help improve your mental health?"
