Our children are aware of the needs of others and frequently ask to be able to raise money for a charity that means something to them. This week, Form 4 baked delicious cakes to sell to support Pancreatic Cancer. Lottie counted the money and tells me that they raised an amazing £231.
Form 8 have been working hard on creating an original version of Henry V to enter in to the Shakespeare Schools national film festival. Both Mrs Fernley (our Head of English & Drama) and the pupils had to ‘fine tune’ their filming and editing skills to be able to turn their creative ideas into a reality! It premiered on Tuesday and is available on Shakespeare Schools Film Festival. Congratulations to all involved.
Form 3 and 4 enjoyed their mixed tag rugby inter-house rugby yesterday. It was pretty chilly and everyone was very appreciative of Kerry who kindly served hot chocolate to the teams and Parents. It was the turn of the senior boys’ inter-house rugby today and I could not believe how muddy they got within seconds of the match starting! The girls enjoyed their hockey matches with Clayesmore.
Top secret rehearsals are going strong for this year’s Nativity play. Two performances are planned on the 2nd and 3rd December and I cannot wait to see it! To avoid overcrowding, entry will be by ticket only.
Mrs Salisbury was delighted to tell me that we have received a £200 STEM prize voucher for one of last year’s Form 8 entries into the ‘Flying Start’ STEM competition. Congratulations to Eddie, Harri, Leo and Gethyn. We will make sure the prizes find there way to the worthy winners!
Lastly thank you to everyone who has sent in Christmas donations for the Portland Food Bank. The final day for these is Friday 3rd December.
