Autumn has finally arrived

Posted on: October 5th 2011

It is hard to believe that we are more than a month into the academic year! Summer seems but a distant memory, despite the revival of some fantastic weather at the weekend and earlier this week! Once again, it’s been a busy couple of weeks with our Preprep – Form 6 pupils preparing for our Harvest Festival celebrations on Monday 10th October. It is being held at St. Andrew’s church between 2 and 3pm and as well as a service from Father Pybus and work and songs presented by the children, there will be an opportunity for our pupils to bring in donations for the local Soup Kitchen. It would be lovely to see as many parents there as possible and for as many donations to offer, as we can. I strongly believe in the sense of community that we create through such events and it is healthy for our pupils to play an active role.

I’ve also been enjoying breakfast with our teachers and pupils in Breakfast Club, when I haven’t had early morning meetings; it’s such a nice opportunity to chat with the children on a more informal basis. Parents of pupils are also more than welcome and we open at 7:40, with last breakfast orders around 8am, although the children stay until 8:20.  There is always a selection of hot and cold breakfasts on offer for the healthy appetites our pupils seem to have!

On the academic side of things, I have enjoyed meeting with different pupils throughout the last few weeks, who have brought me examples of excellent work they have been doing in their lessons. I am always amazed by the quality of work our children produce at such a young age, and the rate at which they progress, and I have very high expectations, so that’s no mean feat!

I look forward to the rest of the half term and the exciting things going on in our curriculum and around the school in the next few weeks.
