Christmas Bazaar 2018…and more!

Christmas season 2018 at TCST has now been officially inaugurated with the annual Christmas Bazaar. Parents donated items to be sold and also volunteered for gift wrapping duty. Once everything was set up and ready the youngsters were welcomed in for their Christmas shopping experience. Starting with the youngest members of the school the children came and chose presents for their families and learned the joy of giving to others. Everything cost 50p and proceeds will go to school funds. You will see in the photos some of the children helping each other to choose whilst others are helped by members of staff. This year’s event went smoothly and was enjoyed by all – a great community effort!

The school was also involved in the Christmas “Light Up” at the Jubilee Hall across the road which was a lovely village community event. TCST children were able to contribute to the enjoyment of the evening by performing three songs on the stage. We are now looking forward to our Carol Service on Friday evening as well as our end of term dramatic performances next Tuesday (infants) and Wednesday (everyone else) as we break up for the Christmas holiday. Happy Christmas everyone!

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I have been a student at this school for at least ten years.

I used to be a very shy person with school simply flashing before my eyes. But now I can clearly see the good the school does.

This school is quite small and for me that’s just what I need. GCSEs are not a walk in the park, but with thanks to the teachers I am never lacking a challenge to improve in my subjects and test my knowledge. And you don’t fade into the background, this meant I could build really helpful connections with the teachers so I can get the support I need in lessons so that I do not become overwhelmed.

The teacher’s advice has been invaluable during assemblies and on an individual level.

Altogether this meant I could get to where I am today, speaking in public and believing that it is possible to reach the grades I need.

Daniel – a hard act to swallow!

Our school musical was a great success. Years 4-9 put on two evening performances of Daniel – a hard act to swallow. The story was taken from the Biblical account of Daniel in the Bible. The costumes, scenery and props were impressive. The acting was convincing and the singing was moving. Very well done to all!

 

 

Pancake day!

Pancake day was a lot of fun. Year 11s had a great time cooking the pancakes and everyone had the chance to eat one.
