Safe in their Hands

On Wednesday our Eco-committee organised a really interesting and thought provoking Eco Day. The theme was the state of the Oceans and Seas and in particular the impact of plastic on and in the Oceans. It was very apparent from being in and around the classrooms just how concerned and aware the children were of environmental issues. Let’s hope that their generation are able to address the issues in an effective way in the future.

We are fortunate that many members of our Governing Body are able to visit our school on a regular basis. During the year we also have 2 specific dates for Governor Visits to take place and the second of those days for this year was Eco Day on Wednesday. I know that they really enjoyed being alongside the children and staff from their class on this particular day. As one Governor commented to me, being with the class for the morning gave them a real insight and will them as they undertake their crucial role of strategic leadership of the school.

Preparations are really in full swing for our production of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Children have been working really hard practising all aspects of the production and if the rehearsals are anything to go by the dance elements will be fantastic, as well as having a couple of surprise elements. In addition to these preparations a number of children undertook the music tests last week, including Grade exams for players of a range of instruments including saxophone and clarinet. Performing Arts continue to be a distinguishing characteristic of our school.
