Value: Peace


This week we said our final farewells to our much loved colleague Alison Parry. Alison was the schools secretary for over 24 years. She ran the office with her particular Scottish style and was often the first face that generation of parents and children saw in the morning. She also hid her own light under a bushel as she was a teacher and an accomplished musician playing the piano. She was a wife, mother and a grandmother. However to us she was Alison the front face of the office who made us laugh with her wry sense of humour. She will be missed beyond the boundaries of her family. Our thoughts are with her family and our respects are with Alison. God Bless.
Sporting victory
The Autumn term has seen a number of sporting achievements by the children of Tewkesbury C of E. Our children have competed in a series of football events and a netball tournament. Within football, both the Year 5 & 6 boy’s and girl’s football teams secured first place in the local Tewkesbury ESFA tournament. This victory allowed them to take part in the county finals against teams from Cheltenham, Gloucester, Dursley and many more. Both teams played splendidly and the Year 5 & 6 girls finished 3rd in the county, which was a tremendous achievement and one which they should be proud of. Our eyes now fall to the spring term where we are to take part in the year 3 & 4 and 5 & 6 football league finals and many other tournaments and competitions.
