News from Holy Trinity CofE Primary School

The new academic year has started with great excitement for all that is planned for this year. New staff and pupils have joined us and we have all enjoyed seeing friends again and making new ones. Reception children have joined us part time for the first few weeks and they will all soon be full time in school. Our focus for this half term is ‘Generosity’ and all Collective Worship for all children will be sharing this theme

As usual at this time of year, applications for a place in a Reception class next year are already being processed by Dorset County Council, via their online application system. If you know someone with a child whose date of birth falls between 1-9-13 and 31-8-14, please let them know that they need to apply for a place to start school in September 2018.  Applications should be made at http://www.dorsetforyou.com/school-admissions  with the closing date for applications being 15 January 2018. Visits to meet our Headteacher and find out about a place in a Reception class will be held this term and anyone with a child who is due to start school in September 2018 is warmly invited to visit. For more information, please contact Erica Cousins at the school office.

    Thought for the Week 19 August 2018

    Promises must always hold out a prospect of something above and beyond the ordinary and preferably unique. Otherwise the strand of joyful hope that marks a promise is missing. When Jesus promised to give us his Body and Blood, the hearers were incredulous as we read in today’s Gospel. Since they could not see how it could happen. They restricted the power of God to their own limited understanding of reality. The temptation is to retreat into our own world and accept only what we understand. The promise is that all who are nourished by the bread of life will live for ever. To risk all for this promise is the vocation of every follower of Jesus.

    MUSICAL DIRECTOR

    Back in February Holy Trinity church PCC met for a vision day led by the Archdeacon of Dorset.

    It was clear that we needed to move the church forward looking at new opportunities to help us survive in the future but importantly to help us to be more mission orientated as responsible Christians who want to share the Gospel of Jesus. The great strength of Holy Trinity church is its venue and potential for Music and the Arts because of the church’s exceptional acoustics as well as continuing to promote good traditional music within worship. The PCC have been starting to look at rough architectural drawings of how we might equip our building with the best facilities, not only for ourselves, but to open it to others. Yes, this will take time but planning ahead is crucial and we need to start now. Therefore the PCC agreed that we should seek to appoint a Musical Director who would not just oversee the day to day running of the church music and direct the choir and grow its membership, but who would work, plan and develop all music of the church including all kinds of music activities.

    Derek Griffin has been an unofficial Director of Music at Holy Trinity for many years - for which we are all exceedingly grateful, but feels at present this new role would not be possible for him to take on because of his own commitments. On a date to be announced we hope to make a presentation to Derek. We are pleased that he has offered to remain on the rota with our other visiting organists as and when needed.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding is down and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target.

Vicar’s letter for July 2018/August 2018

“God doesn’t have a holiday!

Working through a desk groaning with paper on a glorious sunny summer morning, I just happened to wish out loud that I was on holiday. However, I was soon reminded by a parishioner of the wonderful truth that God doesn’t have holidays.
