SOUTH MALLING SCHOOL: Year 6 had a glorious sunny day and thoroughly enjoyed the Moving On Parade last Friday. Dressed as Rose Chafer Beetles they looked a picture as they processed through the town. A huge thank you to all the parents who helped to make it such a memorable day and such an important transition event. This week the Year 6 classes have performed their play-Romeo and Juliet (at South Verona). Not only have they contributed to writing it (sorry Mr Shakespeare) but for the first time they have produced and performed all the music and choreographed the dances. They have done a stunning job and the school won’t be surprised to see many of them on the stage in years to come. On Monday and Tuesday the children and their parents will be meeting and spending time with their new teachers so they are prepared for the new school year. On Wednesday, the school will be saying some emotional goodbyes. The head says, ‘Not only are our lovely Year 6 classes leaving for the next chapter in their learning journey but we are also saying goodbye to our wonderful Mrs Fluke who has worked at the school as a teaching assistant for 25 years, supporting the Red Rabbits and many other children. We wish them all the very best for the future.’

TRINITY AT SOUTH MALLING: The parish church will be celebrating Holy Communion this coming Sunday with Vicar, Revd Jeremy Bamber. The service starts at 9.30am and all are welcome.
