Dear Parents
We have had a very full and entertaining last week of term.  Grade 5M and 5B had a most informative and enjoyable environmental camp from Monday to Wednesday at Imire.  One of the highlights, of which there were many, was interacting with a three week old rhino.  Grade 5W return from Imire today having had an equally enjoyable camp.

The Grade 7 production of ‘Oliver Twist’, which they performed for the school on Tuesday morning, the Charity performance on Tuesday afternoon and the main performance on Wednesday evening, was exceptional.  The mature    and polished performances, amazed   and thoroughly entertained all.  Congratulations to go all our Grade 7’s and to Mrs Omarshah, Mrs Morar, Mrs Bosha and Mr Lucas, the acting coach.

All the Grade3 – 7 pupils have been busy rehearsing for the Carol Concert, which will be held at 6:00pm on Monday evening in the school hall.  All pupils in Grade 3 – 7 participate and all parents, relatives and friends are welcome to this special annual event.

We will be holding an Assembly on Tuesday morning at which end of year certificates not awarded at Prize Giving are presented.  Parents of pupils being awarded certificates will be informed and are welcome to attend the assembly.

Our Annual Prize Giving will be held at 11:00am on Wednesday morning.  All pupils in Grades 3 – 7 will attend and all parents are welcome.  School ends for all pupils in ECD – Grade 6 after the Prize Giving.

School will end for Grade 7’s on Thursday after their Leavers Dance.

As we look to the future with regards to continuity, we announce a change to our Senior Management structure. Miss. Cox, who took over as Senior Teacher in 2005 and then as Deputy Head in 2008, is stepping down from her role as Deputy Head and stepping back into her role as Senior Teacher. Mrs. Holderness, who has been Senior Teacher, will take over as Deputy Head as from January. We all thank Miss. Cox most sincerely for all her efforts as Deputy Head and look forward to her continued valuable contributions on the Management Team and wish Mrs. Holderness every success in her new role. They are supported by Mrs. Omarshah, Head of Academics and CALA’s, and Mrs. Bimha, Head of Infants.
