St Edward's Primary Perform at the OASIS Academy's Dementia Cafe
St Edward’s students were honoured to be asked once again to perform at the OASIS Academy’s Dementia Café this Thursday.
Year 5 children from St Theresa class, along with their school dog Bryn, performed three songs for the large audience. The children had worked hard to present a diverse selection of songs, starting with a traditional call and response song in Ghanaian called Oleo. This was followed by a song written especially with children in mind and focussed on one of the school's core values, 'kindness'. Their final offering was a medley of current pop songs, arranged for the 2018 Young Voices festival and featured songs by Robbie Williams and Ed Sheeran, among others.
The children were delighted to meet the Mayor of Swale and the Lady Mayoress and enjoyed asking questions about their Chains of Office and whether they had met the Prime Minister.
Year 5 were excited to watch the senior dancers from the Academy perform, as some of the St Edward’s girls have very recently won The Schools’ Games Level 2 dance competition.
Your students NEED YOU!
Come along and hear them speak.
Is your local Catholic secondary school sixth form taking part? Your school needs support. The judges include Archbishop Peter Smith and the Mayor of Tunbridge Wells. Refreshments available.
Thursday March 15 5.30 p.m.

What A Surprise For The Children On The St Joseph's Walking Bus
A certain rotund white whiskered gentleman paid a flying visit to Broadstairs last week when he surprised the St Joseph’s Walking Bus by joining them for their last walk of term.
Letting his reindeer rest in anticipation of the Big Night’s work ahead, he walked with the 30 strong Bus and then stayed for a Christmas breakfast of croissants and hot chocolate. The walk allowed Father Christmas to listen to the collective wish lists of the walkers (some quite extensive!) who all assured him that they had been exceptionally good throughout the year! Certainly, Miss Meacham, the bus conductor, had a glowing report to give him of the behaviour and commitment of the children who have walked with the bus over the last two terms whatever the weather. Battling ice, wind and rain, the dedicated band of walkers have made friends, exercised and enjoyed the fresh air before school.
We look forward to welcoming back new and old faces to the Bus in 2018 when the first bus of the year will start again on 10 January 2018.

St Joseph’s Netball Team are On Point at Baypoint !
The St Joseph’s School Netball team stormed to victory for a second year running at Baypoint as part of their annual netball competition. With some fresh faces amongst the veterans from last year’s winning team, the nine strong squad won all their three group games to face St Peters in a climactic show down.
After a very tight and nail biting first half, Florence demonstrated her cool head and steady nerves under immense pressure by scoring two goals in quick succession leaving the score at the final whistle as 2-1 to St Joseph’s. Whilst the whole team worked seamlessly together striving for victory, special mention must go to Florence whose tally of 15 goals was a standout achievement.
Well done to the whole team, presided over as by the master of strategy and the guru of motivation, Mr V Jones.

Pudsey Bear paid a visit to St Edwards Catholic Primary School, Sheerness on Wednesday 15th November 2017 to help them go Spotacular for BBC Children in Need.
Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s schools fundraising campaign, The Big Spotacular, has seen schools and nurseries across the country adding a spotty theme to their fundraising, whether they’ve organised a Pudsey picnic for their little ones, a spotty bake sale or a sponsored challenge for their older pupils, to raise more money than ever before for disadvantaged children and young people.
As part of the programme, and organised by staff at Lloyds Bank, Pudsey Bear was invited to surprise pupils at St Edwards Catholic Primary School where he met hundreds of pupils and teachers to thank them for their hard work raising funds and learning about the work the charity does helping disadvantaged children and young people across the country.
As part of St Edwards Catholic Primary School’s fundraising plans, pupils came to school in their pyjamas and had a cinema & popcorn afternoon
Mrs Wakefield, Heateacher said “We’ve really enjoyed raising money for BBC Children in Need this year. The children loved going spotty for The Big Spotacular. They were very excited to receive a visit from Pudsey and the team at Lloyds Bank. The pupils loved it and it was great to have a reward for all our fundraising!”
(Tanya Rabin, BBC Children in Need Partnership Lead at Lloyds Banking Group) said: “We are delighted to be able to have Pudsey visit St Edwards Catholic Primary School and meet the children and the teachers who have been fundraising for BBC Children in Need through the Lloyds Bank Spotacular. Our partnership with BBC Children in Need has played an important part of the Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan, helping tackle disadvantage and improving young people’s lives for the better.”
