Student Choice Ends #33

One can really feel the excitement and enthusiasm in the school at the moment as we not only end the Student Choice for the Autumn/ Winter break but we also get closer to our Christmas Holidays!

Our students have had yet another fantastic Student Choice this year with lots of successful and fun learning activities for them to enjoy and participate in.

We look forward to seeing what is in store for our next year's Student Choice activities as it is fair to say it keeps getting better each year!

Annual Reading Day #32

Annual Reading Day #32

We had yet another successful Reading Day on Thursday 13th December for our Junior and Senior School, straight after our Lucia ceremony.

The day was filled with exciting activities, games, craft and competitions all related to reading, for example:

- Kahoot

- Jeopardy

- Poetry

- Bookmark & Book Cover Design

- Reading to Primary students

Off course there was time for each Year Group to enjoy some peaceful and quiet reading time too!

So it is fair to say, everyone had a fun and exciting day and no one was shy to bring out the book worm in them!

Parent Emails and Information Evenings

As we head into the darkest weeks of winter we ask you all to make sure your children are visible - even a small reflex on a jacket or bag can help make n important difference when crossing the road.

 

Wishing you a wonderful winter break!
