Girls' Junior School & Infant School update - 18/05/2018

Dear Parents,

By personal invitation of Peter Jackson Jewellers in Bury, a randomly selection of extremely lucky junior boys and girls went to view the Crown Jewels this week. They were absolutely magnificent! Children and staff alike were in awe of the beauty and magnitude of the pieces before us. Peter Jackson himself informed the children in perfect detail about each piece, his enthusiasm was magnetic and the children were enthralled. Amongst the collection was St Edward’s Crown, the Imperial State Crown, Queen Victoria’s small Crown and many more beautiful pieces including, The Spencer Tiara. Generously he invited the children to try on a selection of jewels including a crown and a tiara… even the staff tried them on! It really was a ‘royal’ experience and one I hope they will treasure forever.

As always, we have had a busy week. Starting the week off were the Swimming Gala’s for Year’s 5 and 6 and then following this were Year’s 3 and 4, with some spectacular efforts from all Forms. I am proud to say that we have very competitive and dedicated sportswomen. All girls were a credit to their Forms. Well done everyone!

Year 4 have ventured to Robinwood with the Junior Boys this week. Having accompanied the Year 6 Boys to Edale for many years I was intrigued to see how they were getting on. I was not disappointed. As I arrived, some children were zooming down a zip-wire and other abseiling! They welcome I received was heart-warming and it is safe to say they were having a fabulous time… there will be some very tired children this weekend!

In anticipation for Saturday, we are enjoying our own celebrations with red, white and blue decorations and of course lots cake! We wish Meghan and Harry the very best!
