Competition Successes!

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, January 19, 2020 - 19:31

At the end of last week.......

Swimming Triumph!
Goudhurst & Kilndown's Swimming team were victorious at this week's WOKKSA Inter-Schools Swimming Gala.  It was a fantastic team performance and we won by a fair margin;  it is has also been a while since we last won the gala so victory was all the sweeter.  Congratulations to the whole team, but especially Luke and Louis who had to step in at the last minute.  A special big thank you again to Mrs Mileham for organising and leading the team. 

The Goudhurst Traffic Action Group (GTAG) recently launched a competition for children at the school to create eye catching posters that will hopefully reduce the number of trucks in the village, speeding, parking of vehicles on pavements etc. The children certainly rose to the challenge!  Look at the winning entries which will now be published and appear on signage and litter/wheely bin stickers all over the village - congratulations to:  Harry (Hippos), Lucian (Elephants),  Eddie (Kudus), Lily (Giraffes), Sophie (Zebras), Issie & Anna (Lions).

Harvest Festival 2019

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, October 6, 2019 - 10:17

The whole school enjoyed a wonderful celebration of the Harvest in St Mary's Church this afternoon.  A big well done to all classes for their brilliant array of 'performances' that showed harvest in many different ways; reading, acting,dancing, singing, video-making - we had everything!  A huge thank you to all families that donated food; This year the gifts will be divided between our own Community Cupboard and the Nourish Foodbank in Tunbridge Wells.

Finally a big well done to Year 6 for leading the service so well.

Our Amazing School

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 23:28
Wow! What another very busy and successful school year we have had and last Friday was a shining example of the day in the life of our wonderful school. It started at about 6.30am with parents and staff together setting up for sportsday! Mr & Mrs Stanford even arrived with bacon sandwiches which were appreciated very much. Indeed it was a fabulous morning enjoyed by everyone. Well done to all the children but particularly those in Scotney who won both the KS1 and KS2 sports cup. Thank you to Mrs Mileham for organising the event, which as ever ran very smoothly. Thank you to the PTFA for providing refreshments and of course to you the parents, families and friends for all your support.

Following a picnic lunch, the school then opened its' classroom doors and parents were warmly invited to experience an afternoon in the life of Goudhurst & Kilndown pupil. There was a real buzz throughout the school and lots of parents commented on how it had been a wonderful day, just perfect!

Village Fete 2019

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, June 13, 2019 - 10:01

Thank you to everyone who attended the Fete,  it was truly a wonderful community affair. The May Queen and King, Lola and Finley, spectacularly opened the fete. Well done to our Maypole Dancers who performed beautifully. Thank you to Mrs Plewes and Mrs House for preparing the children. Indeed, I received many comments from members of the community about how lovely it is to see children dancing around the Maypole. The inclement weather did not dampen anyone's spirits; in good true British style, we all kept clam and just carried on. Particular thanks must also go to all those parents who gave up their time to set up, run stalls and then at the end helped us clear away. How lucky we are to have such an amazing community! I think you will agree the pictures courtesy of Ali Tuson capture the atmosphere brilliantly!
