The Duke of Cambridge (Prince William) meets members of the St. Mary of the Angels girls' football squad
On Thursday 13th July, members of our girls' football squad were delighted and honoured to meet Prince William as he hosted a reception at Kensington Palace for the England's Women's Football team to wish them luck ahead of the UEFA Euro 2017 tournament. Thank you to Charlotte Edwards, QPR's Football Development Officer (Women & Girls) for inviting our school to take part and to the pupils for representing the school so well. Some of them even managed to score a penalty against the Prince! Memories to treasure forever.
A message from the PFA Committee
THANK YOU to everyone who came and made our ‘We are the World’ Summer Fair on June 24th such a huge success. We had a fantastic day filled with an amazing sense of community spirit. The feedback from the children is that they had a really wonderful and memorable day and particularly enjoyed this year’s attractions: the go-karts were a real success! A huge thank you to all the staff, parents/carers and friends of the school who gave their time to set up and run the stalls with such energy and enthusiasm and to all of our families who came along and enjoyed all the fun of the fair. Thank you also for all the donations and raffle prizes we received this year from bric-a-brac to the delicious International food which was once again a highlight of the event.
We really appreciate your support in making the event such a happy and successful event.
Together we raised a wonderful £5,000 for the children of St. Mary of the Angels.
The PFA Committee agreed for the funds collected this academic year to go towards the cost of the beautiful mosaic in the KS2 playground. In the new school year, we will be raising funds towards the cost of new lighting in the KS1 playground and a new school public address system which the PFA will be able to use during our PFA events. We look forward to working you and the staff in the new school year and wish you all a lovely summer holiday.
Debra Caprice and Cheryl Joseph, Chairs of the PFA
'Thank you for making the school what it is: a peaceful environment, where everyone loves each other and everyone cares for each other. We all feel like one big community of brothers and sisters looking out for each other.'
