Football tournaments – didn’t we do well!

Children in Year 5 and 6 took part in football tournaments recently. The girls did well and here is a report from one of them, ‘The first thing I noticed when we arrived at the tournament was the teams. There were so many of them and they were all amazing. We settled down on a spare pitch and started to practise. We played six games and then an important man came and told everyone the results so far. We were in the top 4 of our half of the draw. We were through!  I regret to inform you that we didn’t win our next match but, hey, we came fifth out of sixteen teams.’

Earlier this month Year 6 boys competed in a football tournament. Here is what they wrote about it, ‘Our experience of The Elms tournament was that we won and had loads of fun. Also our coaches were very pleased with the result and our attitude towards our opponents. Furthermore they were very encouraging and positive. The matches that we played were outstanding in terms of teamwork and individual performances.’

The Sunflower Fund

We aim for Southfield to provide a happy, nurturing community which inspires children to learn and to be their best. To do this there are two main areas we would like to improve: the quality of the learning materials that are on offer to our children and the environment in which they learn. The funds we have can take us so far, but we believe if we could generate additional financial support it could benefit the school significantly.

After discussion between the Governing Body and our Headteacher, The School agreed this is an opportunity we would like to try. Therefore, to help achieve this we are asking for your support in making a voluntary financial contribution to a new ‘Sunflower Fund’.

If you would like to support the ‘Sunflower Fund’ you can do so by logging into your ParentMail account and going to the “payments” area where you will find an option to pay in installments of £5, or more if you choose (see box titled custom installment), or a one off payment of £60 per year.

Alternatively, you can set up a standing order with your bank. Please pay to the school account using reference “Sunflower”.
(Southfield Primary School, NatWest Bank Ealing, Sort code: 60-07-10, Account: 03715566).

We will also gladly accept cheques handed in at the front office.

The Governors propose reporting back to you each term on the funds that have been generated and how they have been spent.
