Ms. Habgood’s End of Term Summary

Posted on: December 13th 2012

It's been a busy end of term with all the events going on, so I thought I'd give a quick summary, seeing as the Head Boy and Head Girl have taken over my blog this time, with their first video blog!

Senior School Evening: Our current Form 5 parents enjoyed talks from Heads and senior staff from Belmont, City, Highgate, Channing and Aldenham last week. They had a chance to ask questions and find out about the ethos of each school, and there were also talks from Mr Ashton, Mrs Ellison and myself about our successful 'prep' programme.

The night was an overwhelming success with excellent feedback from the parents. We see it as an opportunity for parents to be informed early about the process and to understand what support and guidance the school can offer.

Carols by Candlelight: Our annual carol singing was held for a second year indoors due to the threat of adverse weather. However, it was well attended and mulled wine and mince pies were available from our eternally supportive FoNH! The parents and pupils enjoyed carols from the choir, as well as instrumentals from our senior recorder group and solos and duets from our senior pupils. A melodious finale with the last four sounds being accompanied by all of us, set the festive tone and left everyone in good cheer.

Thank you to all parents and families who attended and made it a lovely evening.

Nativity: The Nativity is always my favourite event at the end of this term; seeing all the hard work from our younger pupils and KS1 teachers coming together in a lovely celebration of singing and drama. It's amazing to watch the confidence of our little ones performing to a pretty big audience. Much fun was had by all!!

There have been so many other things going on that there are too many to mention- some of them are in other newsletter stories, this week, so do read them. It has been a super successful term and from reading all the children's reports, I know that they have been happy and made good progress in their learning. We've all made it to the end, despite a Baltic December and some nasty germs floating around; so I wish you all well and hope you and the children have a restful Christmas break, whatever festivities you may be enjoying and we will see you bright and sparkling in the New Year for our next busy term!

Ps- Don't forget to return your After School Club Forms before 18th Dec in order to ensure that there are enough pupils to run the clubs. (See Messages from the Office)
