A Message from Steve Morton
What a busy fortnight it has been! Firstly, well done to Both Lola Connett and Jessica Slade, who both valiantly represented our school at the Ilminster Literary Festival last week. You both recited your poems with amazing gesture, expression and passion. You made us all very proud. Secondly, to our fantastic Quad Kids team who demonstrated their sporting prowess at Holyrood on Wednesday. As always, you all did an amazing job and played with full commitment and sportsmanship that some professionals could learn from. Well done to you too. Thirdly, a big thank you to Jaqui, Janet and all the parent volunteers who have been working with the children and staff this week to help make our Art week run so smoothly. The children have had an amazing time and have really shown us their inner artists. We will continue with the art projects that we started over the rest of the term. Please keep popping in to see how they are progressing. Finally, a bittersweet pill. After 2 marvelous years, sadly we say goodbye to Mr Durham at the end of term. His time with us has been filled with fantastic memories of his creativity, interesting sense of humor, passion for teaching and commitment to our school .He leaves us to explore an exciting career as a musician and music teacher back in his home county of Hertfordshire. He will be greatly missed by us all. I am however, delighted to welcome both Miss Nadine Luesley and Miss Fiona Cridland to our teaching team. Fiona and Nadine will be joining Rachael and Lisa next year completing our staff. Next year looks set to be another year full of new and exciting opportunities for all of the children at Buckland.
