Girls' Junior School & Infant School update - 20/04/2018

Dear Parents,

As we welcome the children back to begin our summer term we check our Calendar to make sure we have everything in place. For those who are new to school life they can be forgiven for thinking that the summer term is about consolidation and winding down for the summer holidays... make no mistake, the summer term is as busy … if not the busiest term of all! From school trips to concerts to sports events, it is no mean feat to keep up to date with all that is going on! In our whole school Welcome Back assembly this week the children’s list of what they are looking forward to was endless and the look of excitement and anticipation was endearing. And so it begins... please make sure you have all our key dates in your diaries and we will keep you as informed as possible.

This week I took the opportunity to take assembly in the Junior Girls School which is always a treat. We discussed the importance of good character. Who we should look up to and why? What kind of person do I want to be? We listened to the famous speech delivered by Martin Luther King, ‘I have a dream’. You could hear a pin drop in the hall as the girls listened carefully. I was encouraged and proud of the girls’ contribution to this assembly taking great interest in understanding the importance of being of good character. As Martin Luther King says, it is of upmost importance that we see the ‘content of character’ in each other.

It was a privilege to meet with our junior girls’ this week in my ‘Pupil Voice’ meeting. Their contributions to curriculum ideas, extra curriculum activities and pastoral matters were well thought through. I truly complement our girls on their intelligence and sincere positive support for each other. It goes without saying I have a long ‘To Do’ list!

I wanted to congratulate our Year 5/6 girls who attended the Holland Trip this Easter holiday. They were a pleasure to take with us. They participated whole heartedly and were as always, excellent ambassadors for the school. From passport control to playing international sport their behaviour and sports-womanship was commended at every point. Of course this is the first collaborative trip abroad with the boys and what a success it was!
