02/03/2018   School Closures- Friday 2nd March

Both St Thomas' and Wyberton (including Little Oaks) will be closed again tomorrow (Friday 2nd March). This has not been an easy decision and to fully explain our reasons for closing I have written a letter:  School Closures- Friday 2nd March which you can read by clicking on the link or visiting the letters page.

We do recognise the impact this has on children and families and I can assure you we have not made this decision lightly. I look forward to seeing you all on Monday and wish you a safe and enjoyable few days.

 

Best Wishes

Mr Booth

 

01/03/2018   Federation Schools Both Closed- Thursday 1st March

St Thomas' and Wyberton  (including Little Oaks Nursery) will be closed on Thursday 1st March following advice from Lincolnshire County Council about the weather and dangerous road conditions. This decision has not been taken lightly and we hope that you will understand the need to make the safety of our children, their families and the staff our priority. At this moment in time the school is planning to be open on Friday 2nd March but we will review the conditions again tomorrow. We have made this decision early in order to give as much notice as possible.

World Book day will be rearranged for next Thursday 8th March.

15/12/2017   Federation Christingle Service at Boston Stump 8th December

On Friday 8th December Key Stage 2 children from across the Great Oaks Federation joined together for the very first time at St Botolph’s Church (The Stump) in Boston for a Christingle celebration. Children from Wyberton Primary and St Thomas CE Primary were transported in 8 coaches to the church where they were joined by parents, friends and the wider community to give thanks for the life of Jesus Christ and the hope he brought to the world at this time of year. The children had made their own Christingles in preparation with support from The Children’s Society taking the time to consider the special symbolism of each part. During the service which was led by Rev Jane Robertson the congregation sang a number of traditional carols, heard readings and prayers from children from both schools and the combined Great Oaks choir performed. In a moving moment of reflection the 360 children each lit their Christingles and joined together in prayer. It was an amazing and uplifting event that we hope will now become a permanent Great Oaks tradition for many years to come. Our thanks go to the parent volunteers, our church family at St Botolph’s, the staff of Great Oaks and the children for making this such a wonderful experience.
