This morning both Junior House and Senior House celebrated their Harvest Assembly. Thank you to all our parents for coming to support us this morning and for the generous donations of food to help those who need it most. Thanks also to our fantastic POSH team for providing the teas and coffees and to Stennings the Bakers for the wonderful Harvest Loaf which sits at the heart of our display. We learned that we are lucky to have a harvest to celebrate and that there are still too many children in the world who do not have enough to eat. Very well done girls for two such wonderful and powerful assemblies.
Thank you to all our lovely mums, dads, grandparents and friends who came to school this morning to join us for our annual Coffee Morning to help fundraise for Macmillan, Jeans4Genes and Breast Cancer Awareness. Thank you to FVI for being such lovely hostesses this morning and to our wonderful POSH team for organising the event. Special thanks to Rob Kincade, our IT expert, who just happened to be in today and who donated £50.00! So far, we have raised an amazing £585.91 with more to come from this afternoon’s cake sale. Thank you everyone.
This afternoon, we held our Junior House Sports Day. We had so much fun – the weather was perfect, FVI were there to help us and our mums and dads came along to cheer us on. In the end, Lancaster House won the shield. Well done to all JH girls for taking part and thank you to Mrs Mannooch for organising such a wonderful afternoon.
Today we supported Comic Relief Day by wearing our red noses and coming to school dressed in red. We did this to help people in this country and abroad who are less fortunate than us. This morning we learned in assembly that it is so important to be kind and to use our talents to help one another. Our pupils have certainly done that today – so far we have raised £223. Thank you everybody.
On Monday 27th February, Junior House pupils travelled to London by coach to visit the Museum of London and St Paul’s Cathedral. The girls were finding out more about the Great Fire of London and discovered what it would have been like to be living in the 1600s. The girls had a wonderful day. Thank you to all Senior House Teachers for taking us to London and to the mums who also came to help.
On Friday 10th February we celebrated House Day. Pupils dressed in their House colours – Red for Lancaster, White for York and Blue for Tudor. The theme of the day was the Six Nations Rugby Tournament and we made fantastic flags of each country involved. We had a House General Knowledge Quiz, which was great fun. Tudor House won the quiz and was presented with the trophy.
On Friday 24th February, Form I celebrated their assembly by telling us all about mindfulness and how powerful a positive approach can be. Instead of thinking ‘This is too hard’ or ‘I give up’ FI asked us to consider thinking ‘I’ll use a different strategy’ or ‘This may take some time but I will get there’. They told the wonderful story of The Dot, written by Peter Reynolds. The girls gave excellent examples of how practice and trying hard has helped them to overcome difficulties and has given them the confidence to do well. Very well done to our FI girls for such a fantastic performance. Thank you to Mrs Hamilton and Mrs Hammond for organising the assembly and to all the parents and friends of FI who were able to attend.
On Wednesday 22nd February, we celebrated World Thinking Day by inviting our pupils to wear their Guiding uniforms. We had a wonderful array of Rainbows, Brownies and a Beaver to represent Scouting. Our very own Mrs Bolton, Cheam Division Commissioner, led a fascinating assembly of what it is like to be a member of uniformed groups in 2017. The girls were keen to share their very positive experiences of being a member of Girlguiding – making new friends, being part of a wider family, participating in outdoor activities and getting busy with arts and crafts to name but a few! The girls renewed their Promises and thoroughly recommended Girlguiding to their classmates.
