Children ran charity stalls earlier this month and £501.40 was raised for Coco’s Foundation! Lots of hard work and creativity went into the event and children proudly displayed a variety of items including sweet & savoury treats, books and a lucky dip. New to this year’s event were snow globes, Rhiannon’s Vintage-Style Purses, ‘Easter Eggs’ and Fred’s Flintstones. A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped to ensure the event was such a success. Coco’s Foundation provided us with a list of items to spend the money on. Children from the charity council have decided they would like the money to go towards purchasing a toilet, a set of bunk beds plus uniform for one child. Representatives from Coco’s Foundation will be travelling to South Africa in May and we look forward to hearing all about it! Charity stalls will return again in the spring term of 2016
Congratulations to the table tennis team who have qualified for the national finals in Leicestershire.
After coming second in the zone finals in Tower Hamlets in January, the team travelled to Bristol to
play in the regional finals against schools from Dorset, Buckinghamshire and London. Over six
gruelling hours of play, SJA won their three matches 8-0, 7-1 and 6-2 to qualify for the national U11
finals. The boy’s sportsmanship, skill, resilience and team work shone through time and time again.
In a number of matches SJA started slowly and were behind on points but read the opposite players
game, dug in and came out as winners. On Saturday 9th May they will play against the three other
leading schools in England, for a chance to be crowned national champions. Not bad for a village
school in West Sussex!

Last week Year 3 visited Preston Manor in Hove to learn about the life of a domestic servant. The children experienced a day as a footman, housemaid, kitchen maid or oddman in the Victorian times and they were excited to see inside the historical building. Activities included polishing shoes, washing clothes by hand, churning milk and making gingerbread. At the end of the day four children from each class were chosen to be employed as servants at Preston Manor. The children thoroughly enjoyed their trip and the hands on experience gave them fantastic insight into their topic.
