Re: Shout out/events at Sydenham library

Re: Earlesthorpe/Thorpes - schools help please!

I know a few people in Thorpes and all at different schools and all happy. Sydenham is great for primary schools, as above poster said check catchments on the map. I’d say you have the choice of most things: Barts, Adamsrill, St Michaels, St Philip Neri. I know people who have kids in all these scho...

Re: OLSPN

I was at the public meeting chaired by Tom Copley. I live next to the school. This summer I should have been avoiding dust and noise but instead the site lies dormant. It’s not right that the small number of objectors have such a loud voice and have caused the project to come to a halt. Unfortunatel...

Re: Tomorrow's OLSPN planning meeting URGENT

The meeting was quite heated and the chair was biased towards Syd Soc members and objectors, even though technically they were in the minority. The contamination issues were pretty much quashed but Syd Soc still not sure due to documentation not being publicly available. The works to continue the pr...

Re: OLSPN: Urgent deadline for comments on St Philip Neri school redevelopment

I notice you say you are concerned about the children. Delays to the building project mean that the children have to spend more time in an unfinished building/playground. You put posters up calling their school “a monstrosity” which upset and hurt children and their families. You are accusing the sc...

Re: OLSPN: Urgent deadline for comments on St Philip Neri school redevelopment

I don’t understand. There was a school already there. Already built on “contaminated land” so why is it so relevant now?

Re: Dentist

I use My Dentist on the high st for 6 monthly cleans and check ups. They are fine. My husband had a filling and fake tooth done too and both fine. Sorry to keep saying fine, but I can’t get excited about going to a dentist . Would recommend though.

Re: Tues 27th, 7pm, meeting re OLSPN & other planning crises

Yes, agree, as a local resident with children at the school I get a bit annoyed with the posters. Especially as they are left way after the event and look scruffy. I don’t mind a couple, but one every couple of meters is excessive and bad for the environment. I really wanted to go to the meeting but...

Re: School catchment areas

Agree it’s a good school. You don’t HAVE to be Catholic though, but obviously happy for your child to say prayers daily/go to church with the school from time to time.
