Kirkby Postman Neil
As many of you who are on Neil’s patch will know he is retiring after 38 years on the 11th May. A sad occasion for us all as he has become so much part of our daily lives.
We are arranging a ‘send off’ thank you tea party for him at the Church Hall at 4.30 on 5th May & we hope as many of his ‘clients’ as possible will be able to join us.
In addition we would like to present him with a gift, and donations for this can be left with: Ros (711796), Anna (712797), Pat (712407) or Sheila (712321). Offers of help towards the catering would also be gratefully received.

Kirkby and Great Broughton School
World Book Day
We celebrated a wonderful World Book Day in school on 11th March where all of the children dressed up as their
favourite character from a book. A huge variety of costumes included Red Riding Hood, Matilda, several fairies, princesses, pirates & a good number of
Harry Potters! Lots of activities took place throughout the day including our oldest and youngest children sharing books together.
Y1/2 Castles Morning
The children in Y1 and Y2 were proud to welcome their parents nto school recently to share their learning all about castles. They had lots of things to
show them including models of castles, information writing, pictures of knights and their own designs for a coat of arms. They completed the visit with a song which the
parents really enjoyed.
All our Y6 children have now completed their Bikeability training (formerly known as Cycling Proficiency) The instructors were very impressed with the
children’s knowledge about road safety & their sensible attitude when taking part in the course.
On 23rd March we joined with others around the country to support the work of Sport Relief who organise incredible projects across the UK and Africa to
tackle poverty and injustice. Children came to school wearing a sports kit of their choice and took part in skipping and dance activities during the day.
As a church school the feast of Easter is very important to us. We are looking forward to celebrating during our Easter Service at St Augustine’s Church at 11am on
Wednesday 28th March. During the afternoon we will be holding our annual duck race. We then gather together in the school hall with parents and friends to view the
decorated eggs display by the children and present the prizes to our winners! We are keeping our fingers crossed for some warm, sunny spring weather for the Easter
holidays! A very happy Easter from all of us at Kirkby and Great Broughton School.
