Enriching Lives

Woodhall Wapentake Article November 2023

During our Autumn Term, we were treated to a wonderful Harvest Festival Collective Worship presented to the whole school by Class 2EM.  The staff, children and their families had been invited to bring in items of food which would be donated to the Woodhall Spa and Kirkby on Bain Food Bank.  The school was overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity shown through their donations … we even needed an extra table to display all items at the front of the Hall!  During the Collective Worship, the children spoke clearly and eloquently about the meaning of Harvest, gave thanks for the crops, food, farmers and their families and acted out the story of ‘The King and the Seed’ wonderfully.  All members of the class participated in the Collective Worship and the whole school joined in to sing two beautiful songs, ‘One in a Million’ and ‘Harvest Samba’, which sounded fantastic.  A big thank you to our school families for their donations which were very gratefully received by the food bank and to 2EM for a wonderful Collective Worship. 


With Term 1 well underway, the school’s extra-curricular clubs are also up and running.  This term we have 9 different clubs being offered to KS1 and KS2.  Our clubs continue to be very popular and the 7 clubs delivered by our own staff continue to be free to families.  The clubs offer a wide range of choice from Football, Netball and Tennis to History Club, Book Club and Choir.  These clubs provide amazing enrichment to the curriculum education offered by the school. 


St Andrew’s also offers it’s pupils amazing opportunities to represent and support the school.  Following applications, our 4 Year 6 School Ambassadors were selected; a School Council representative has been elected by each class; our newly appointed Wellbeing Champions are focusing on diversity and the importance of being unique; House Captains for our 4 houses, Ash, Birch, Sycamore and Oak are in place and a catalogue of Librarians are ably assisting in our School Library.  We look forward to seeing their work and representation both in and outside the school and wish them every success during this academic year.
