A Friday night round up from Mr Schumm

Dear Parents/ Carers,


As the festive cheer slowly envelops us all and with two weeks of Nativities, Fairs and Carols nearly upon us, I thought it wise to have a quick reminder of key dates.


In light of the current Covid situation could I please ask parents to wear a mask at our carol concerts, church services and Nativities. I also think it is probably wise to postpone our Great St Stephen’s Drinks Party till next term – we never cancel, we merely postpone at St Stephen’s so a Spring Drink’s Party will be super!

Parent helpers

We would love to put together a list of parent helpers/ volunteers who would be happy to come into school and listen to children read, run an activity session, read a story to the class or talk to the children about their life experiences, religion or help with DIY around the school! Parents helping in school is really wonderful for our school community so please pop me an email and I can start putting a list together head@ststephensce.lbhf.sch.uk. Miss Mahon held two really informative and useful meetings on parents coming into school to listen to children read or running an activity in the classroom. Please check out the school website here for some useful hints. Helping in School – St-Stephens (ststephensce.lbhf.sch.uk)

A word from Aurelia and Elena


The House Captains’ Christmas Quiz is back! 


A quiz for the whole family held on Wednesday, 15th December at 6pm on Zoom.


This is no ordinary quiz. This is a ‘St Stephen’s Christmas Spectacular’ with all your favourite quiz rounds hosted by us, the House Captains.  This year there’s no boring general knowledge rounds but Brilliant Bingo Bash!’ (Don’t worry this is just normal Bingo with an extravagant name and some special Bingo Calls).  If you thought that was the end of it, then you clearly do not know St Stephen’s.  Alongside our quiz there will be mini-Astonishing Auction with some MEGA lots (an early Christmas gift anyone…)!


It’s £5 per head to enter and this gets you:

–          a goodie bag full of festive treats!

–          a Bingo card; and

–          access to our quiz

Tickets available on Parentmail.


Having bought your ticket to our spectacular event, an email containing links to Zoom, your bingo card and the QUIZ WhatsApp group will be sent (nearer the date).


We hope that you can attend our event!


The money raised will go towards the Year 6 trip and our chosen charities.


So please help us and have a little fun along the way…


Yours sincerely,


House Captains, Elena and Aurelia



Have a lovely weekend.


Mr Schumm
