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!

On Monday 18th March we welcomed Bishop Trevor to the school for one last time as he is due to retire in May. He visited each class and led us in Worship. As always he left us filled with encouragement, wisdom, hope and love for the future.

Allchurches Grant Award

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, March 7, 2019 - 23:43

This week we are so grateful to @Allchurches for their grant of £1,800 towards our next project-creating a Godly Play space adjacent to the Peace garden. Mrs Omer with the support of Mr Draper are running a Godly Play after school club, but our vision is that we will have a dedicated building and resources in order to embed Godly Play sessions into our RE Curriculum and SMSC development areas of in the School.

Godly Play promotes knowledge, skills, empathy, values, spiritual growth and develops the needs of the whole child:mind, body and spirit. It provides a multi-sensory approach to learning, developing language and communication skills and encourages children to make meaning for themselves.

Our project has the full support of Reverend Hugh Nelson and his team and our vision is that St. Mary's Church Community will use the building and resources as part of their mission to improve the spirituality and mental health and well-being of everyone in the community.

At our school we take emotional well-being of our students and staff very seriously. We strongly believe that by developing spirituality, we can improve resilience and emotional well-being which in turn will lead to happiness. If you are happy you will learn!

Reverse Advent calendar

Every day during Advent we’re inviting the church community to give something small towards people in need this Christmas; the items are going to three charities, a local homeless shelter, a women’s refuge and a village school that we support in Zambia. Items that we've asked for so far are warm hats and socks for a man and shower gel and shampoo / conditioner for a woman. You can find out what the item is each day on the GK Church Facebook and Instagram page. There are collection boxes in St. Mary's, Goudhurst, Christ Church, Kilndown, Goudhurst Primary School and Colliers Green Primary School. We'd love everyone to support this as much as they can - thank you.

* Advent windows Have you found a window yet? Join our Christmas adventure by finding an Advent window every day somewhere in Goudhurst, Kilndown or Curtisden Green.

They will only be revealed on the specific day and then for the rest of the Advent season. Each window will be different - they might be simple or elaborate, but they should all be pretty prominent if you're driving or walking around the area. Your job is to find them - and the person who finds the most windows, wins a prize!!!!

RULES All you have to do when you find a window is:
1 Take a photo of the window (you can be in it if you would like)
2 Send the photo to either our GK Church Facebook page, our gandkchurch Instagram or
3 Include #FollowTheStar in your post (this year's theme)

A note of all the entries will be kept so get everyone involved and enjoy the treasure trail.

Wow didn't they do well!! Last week we were treated to three wonderful performances by Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The children spoke confidently and capably and sang beautifully. Well done to everyone, you were amazing!  
On Tuesday 12th Decemeber members of the community joined us for lunch, tea and mince pies and then enjoyed watching the dress rehearsal. I received this email following the performance:
Thank you for such a splendid lunch followed by the enchanting nativity play.  I am sure the subsequent performances will have gone well as the children were so confident and word perfect.  Whoever organised this production did a very good job.

My renewed thanks for inviting me.

With all good wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
