Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Greenfield!

This last week of term started with Carols by Candlelight, which provided us all with a great night of seasonal entertainment. We enjoyed individual performances by our young instrumental musicians, Christmas carols from our choir and communal carol singing. Many thanks to Miss Hill for organising and accompanying the musicians on the piano and to Mr Wilkinson for conducting the choir. We are very grateful to our fabulous Home School Association for providing refreshments on the night and for an excellent term of social and fundraising events. This term this the HSA has raised an absolutely incredible £3947.20! This money will be going towards providing more resources and exciting experiences, which will enhance the education of each child at Greenfield. We thank all our families, who give so much time, thought and effort to support our school in so many different ways.

We congratulate our children for making our Carol Service at St Thomas’ such a well-attended and resounding success. The singing and the pieces performed by each class were excellent and it was superb to see so many parents and grandparents in church. Thank you for your support and compliments.

Our children put on an excellent and highly amusing Talent Show yesterday. We were entertained by a variety of acts from right across the whole school, including singers, instrumentalists, dancers and stand-up comedians. Our Greenfield children are a very talented group of boys and girls and clearly benefit from having the chance to share their skills and build their confidence by performing on stage. Many thanks to Mr Wilkinson, Mr Dove and Mrs Remmers for organising and running such a great show.

I would like to thank our brilliant Greenfield Staff Team for their enthusiasm, energy, dedication and hard work. I value the countless positive contributions, which each member of our team brings to Greenfield. 2014 has been a very successful year but we are determined to improve on our achievements in 2015. On behalf of the Greenfield Team, we wish all our children and families a very peaceful Christmas and a happy New Year.
