There are always exciting things going on at St Laurence's school, ranging from World Book Day celebrations and Clog Dancing demonstrations to seasonal school productions and fund-raising activities.
Each year our new Reception class, as well as any new pupils, each plant a spring flowering bulb.
We also have many people visiting school, both as helpers and teachers.
Modern Foreign Languages
We have visiting Spanish and French teachers. Classes 3, 4, 5 and 6 all learn a Modern Foreign Language and there are also Spanish and French Clubs.
We have a large and enthusiastic KS2 choir which meets on Mondays. We often go out into the local community to sing. This year we have sung in the local shops, at St Laurence's Church, at a local Residential Home for elderly people and at Chorley Town Hall.
We have visiting teachers for woodwind, brass, keyboard and strings and our instrumentalists play for us several times each year.
There is also a recorder group for Lower Junior pupils, which meets on Thursdays.
Throughout the year their are various clubs for different sports, including
netball, football, judo, fencing, cross country, multiskills gymnastics, dance and dodgeball.
Following our appearance at the Mayor's Charity Concert this year, which was a wonderful evening, we were invited to a special afternoon at the Mayor's Parlour. We saw the council chamber special robes and chains which are worn for important events.
It was a lovely afternoon.
At Harvest, we sang a collection of songs from the lovely selection called 'A Combined Harvest' by Out of the Ark Music.
The whole school joined the congregation at St Laurence's on the morning of 22nd September, when we sang and celebrated with family and friends.
On 17th September, the choir had a very special appointment to sing at the official opening of the International Aid charity shop in Chorley. Forty-four choristers, accompanied by parent helpers, teaching assistants and our stalwart friend Cameron the lollipop man, walked to the shop in time to hear a speech by our local MP, Lindsay Hoyle.
The shop staff were so delighted with the choir's performance and the appropriacy of their songs that they asked for a copy of the performance as their shop anthem!
