Spring Equinox was the topic of my assembly this morning, and it gave me a good excuse to show photos of the frog spawn in my pond at home (I know I do not really need an excuse!). It is also ‘Science Week’ this week so we looked at why the tilt of the Earth’s axis and Earth’s orbit give us our seasons.

Form 4 had an excellent reason to miss assembly as they were off on a trip to the Ancient Technology Centre in Cranborne. In history, the class has been studying the Vikings and I am looking forward to hearing all about their exciting day!

Sailing is a popular activity at Sunninghill and we were delighted to hear that Freddie P in Form 6 won 8 out of 11 races at a competition at the Optimist Spring Championships at Draycote Water last weekend. Freddie absolutely dominated the field with a highly consistent performance. He was rewarded with an enthusiastic round of applause in assembly by a clearly impressed audience. Well done, Freddie!

The sports department have been busy with the final preparations for tonight’s trip to see ‘Team Bath’ vs ‘Loughborough Lightenings’ in the Vitality Super League clash. If you have Sky, I am reliably informed that the match is being televised.

Following the Bryanston Strings day last week, I am pleased to say we have received the audio recording of ‘A Festival Rondo’. Please click on the link below to have a listen.

Mrs Nolan-Stone tells me that based on our pupils’ performance at the String Event, three pupils have been selected to return to Bryanston next term for a masterclass led by Christina Scott (violin/ viola) and Sally Stell (cello). The children will have the opportunity to record their solo piece.
