The girls and staff had an amazing week in Les Deux Alpes last week. The staff were so impressed with the girls’ behaviour, determination, kindness, courage, ability and their tidy rooms!! We are already looking forward to Ski 2024!
Over the last few weeks the girls in Forms IV-VI have been taking part in the Bebras Challenge. This is an international computing challenge that is run in over 25 countires worldwide and this year saw 350,000 children take part. The girls all work extremely hard during our practise lessons and took that into the challenge with them. The girls have now received their certificates which are broken down into different categories.
• Best in School
There is also a separate gold award for any children who have achived the top 10% nationally in their age group. Congratualtions to Katy and Grace in Form VI who achieved the gold award! These girls are now invited to the next stage of the competition which will take place in the new year.
We had a wonderful day yesterday hosting our annual Gladman Tournament. Congratulations to Aberdour who won the tournament and congratulations to our team who came second. Thank you to Mr Colomer for organising such a great event and thank to all the participating schools: Cumnor House, St Mary’s, Banstead Prep, Warren Mead, Ewell Castle, Old Palace of John Whitgift, Micklefield and Aberdour. See you all next year 🙂
Last Thursday, Form VI went to London to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which is currently being studied in their comprehension lessons with Mr Bates. The girls enjoyed lunch at Prezzo’s and then made their way to the theatre. We are looking forward to seeing the film of the day, made by the girls with the GoPro 🙂
The Royal Academy of Arts has accepted Delara’s (FVI) painting titled “Deforestation’ for both the online exhibition as well as being displayed at RA exhibition. Out of over 33,000 artworks only very few pieces of artwork have been selected by prestigious artists and art professionals. Well done Delara what an amazing achievement.
Form VI had a great time last week on their residential trip to Osmington Bay, Dorset. Mrs McGreevy and Mrs Smith had a fantastic week with the girls and they were so impressed with their maturity and ‘can do’ attitudes. The instructors commented on how positive, knowledgeable and polite the were. They were also impressed by their teamwork and enthusiasm. Well done girls and welcome back!
Form IV had a wonderful time in Bowles, despite the rain and mud! We learned to work as a team, to support one other on the low ropes, we learned how to ski and we went rock climbing. We practised our archery skills and went sledging and pool kayaking. We learned to read a map during orienteering skills and, in the evenings, we had great fun toasting marshmallows around the campfire. Thank you so much to Mrs Mason and to Mrs Hammond for such a fantastic week!
Very well done indeed to our Form VI girls who hosted our annual Gladman Tournament earlier this week. We were delighted that our guest of honour, Mrs Gladman, could come back to see us and to present the trophy. Our team played exceptionally well and fought hard on court, finishing fourth overall. Thank you to our Form VI girls who were such wonderful hosts, to Mrs White for organising such a fantastic afternoon and to all our families and friends who came to cheer us on.
As part of our Harvest Festival celebrations, Form VI put on a very entertaining concert for the rest of the school. Well done girls – what a fantastic start to the weekend!
