This week Senior Prep enjoyed their inter house matches. The cup is always fiercely fought! Mrs Telfer said the girls played their netball house matches at Redlands. There were a few missed opportunities for shooting and perhaps the nerves got the better of the shooters. However the games were very however which put a competitive edge on the final game as the top three positions could have been anyone’s! Well done to all players for finishing off the netball season with the true spirit of sportsmanship. The results are as follow and congratulations to Maumbury.

The Senior boys enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon on the Sunninghill Astro. Displaying a fantastic attitude, throughout they fought gallantly for their houses in the inter house hockey competition. The scores were immensely close so it was not a surprise when Maumbury and Purbeck battled for bronze when the result was a draw. The final game was between Frome and Ridgeway which Frome won after two excellent goals from Archie G. Great performances throughout and congratulations to Frome!

The final results:
1 Frome
2 Ridgeway
Joint 3rd Purbeck and Maumbury

Yesterday we held our Endeavour Assembly. This is a lovely event and I particularly enjoy the opportunity to see children being rewarded for all their hard work this term. Academic, sporting and music awards and colours were handed out, and congratulations to all the winners.

Some kickboxing belts also made their way on to the awards table and I must congratulate in Form 2 for passing their grading exams.

Whilst the awards took place, the PTFA were busy in the school grounds hiding Easter eggs for the grand Egg Hunt. It was a great success, and the enthusiasm of the children was not dampened by the bitter northerly winds but lovely sunshine. Mr Stazicker, wearing Easter bunny ears, was on the start line and set off each Form group in waves. It was lovely to see Miss Blair join us with her gorgeous baby Arabella.

Thank you to the PTFA for providing the chocolate Easter Eggs and organising the whole event.

We celebrated the end of term with a fabulous service at St Peter’s Church. We were delighted to be joined by Mr Newberry who will be taking over as Head in September. The readings were interspersed with some lovely music ensembles and choral pieces from our Junior and Senior Chamber Choirs. A highlight has to be the finale where the choirs came together along with the staff and parent choir to sing Bridge Over Troubled Water. Afterwards, it was back to school for warm drinks and hot cross buns! A wonderful way to start the holiday.

From all of us at Sunninghill, we wish you a restful Easter Break and will look forward to welcoming everyone back in to school for the start of the Summer Term on Tuesday 26th April.
