Welcome to our website
Dorchester St. Birinus Church of England School is a small village school where we seek to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment with opportunities for all children to develop their potential as joyful, confident, proud, healthy and independent individuals with key skills for life.
As you can appreciate, there is only so much information that can be gained from our website, however there is no substitute for visiting the school. If you would like to see St Birinus Primary School in action, I would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office on 01865 340081 to arrange a visit.
- Sports Day
Yesterday was our annual Sports Afternoon – we were so lucky with the weather. As always it is so good to see the teamwork and support shown by the children for all their houses. It was also fun to see the return of the parents’ races this year – eagerly requested by the children. Thank you to the PTA for organising the cake stall for the afternoon – it raised £59.30.
Here is the winning team-the Blues.
- Playground fundraiser
may have seen the new banner now being displayed on the front of the school
building. One of the school governors is
working very hard on a fund raising project to try and raise £15,000 to
resurface the school playground and to make it useable for various sports
including a pickleball court for children and adult members of the community. We hope to colour in the various characters
on the banner as we reach our target. We
will also be doing our part by including the money raised from our sponsored
walk (letter and sponsor form to be sent out soon).
- Mrs Harding the daredevil!
Congratulations to Mrs Harding for her abseil down the Abbey Tower on Saturday as part of the Dorchester Festival – it was great to witness her quickly descend as if she was Spiderwoman.
- May Dancing
Despite the rain last Friday, which began as soon as the children started our May Dancing afternoon, we enjoyed a good display of dance. Well done to the children and staff for performing so brilliantly and to the parents and visitors who joined our big Circassian Circle – I am sure it gets better each year.
- The Living Rainforest
On Tuesday, Fox Class headed off to the Living Rainforest near Newbury – an amazing adventure linked to their Rainforest topic. The children enjoyed the experience and were brilliant listening to our guides.
