Summer is here and what a year it has been – full of ups and downs but we believe we have come through stronger. We have built even stronger relationships with our community despite not being physically together and while, understandably, it is still an anxious time, it is also a time for hope. We can’t wait to get back to what we do best and remember that ‘every storm runs out of rain’. We are so proud to be part of Team Rownhams!Continue reading
Mrs Broyd, our Child and Family Support Worker, has been working closely with Romsey Young Carers so that we can better support children who have a role in caring for someone at home. We have also been closely supported by Ben Hogbin, one of our parent governors, who works for Winchester Young Carers. So, what is a Young Carer? Also, in this blog, read about our Young Governors idea for ‘one-minute book reviews’ and how you could write your own… and finally, the long awaited photos from Year 5/6’s trip to the Harry Potter studios!Continue reading

25th October 2019, Harvest Festival
Next week we are holding our Harvest Festival service at the school and our new Reverend Graeme Dixon will be joining us for his first school event. On that note, we do have plans to hold a Christingle service at St John’s in December. There will be more information on this to follow after the half term.
25th October 2019, ‘What makes Rownhams Special?’ (film production)
On the same day next week we hope to start recording for a short film about our school. The purpose of this is to celebrate our school and what makes Rownhams special. The finished production (which probably be 2-3 minutes long) will be placed on our website. Ellie Powell, a media student at Winchester University, has very kindly offered her services and expertise to this end. Thank you in advance Ellie!
If you have been on our website recently you will have seen that it is looking a bit untidy and some sections are missing. We are in the process of updating and improving this so please bear with us. In the meantime, if you need any information that would normally be on the website please don’t hesitate to contact the school office.
Next week are holding a Wellness Week for staff and children. The children will be participating in small activities to raise awareness about looking after your mind, such as mindfulness. In Collective Worship today, Lion Class today shared their thoughts on how to manage your worries and the importance of talking to someone. So, with those thoughts in mind I’ll leave you with this week’s quote from the Bible:
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
1 Peter 5:7 , New Living Translation (NLT)
