Even though foreign travel is very limited, at the moment, our girls have been transported to other parts of the world without leaving EHS this week.
Year 6 arrived on Monday morning for their French Experience. The flag was flying, the Eiffel Tower in place and myriad flags and balloons added to the flavour of France. The girls, and staff, embraced the experience and came each day, from Monday to Wednesday dressed in a variety of French colours and outfits. Coco Chanel, alias Aurelia, also dropped in to inspire the girls on their French Fashion Day with details of her vision. You can find more about the whole experience in the accompanying article but it was clear that they enjoyed the opportunities on offer.
We are looking forward to finding out who the prize winners are next week and will report on the decisions.
Year 4, meanwhile were transported to the rainforests of the Amazon with the arrival of the Rainforest Roadshow. It was lovely to hear the girls gasp as they arrived to see the wide range of photographs on display. At the end of the day, it was obvious that they too had enjoyed ‘visiting’ another part of the world.
The theme of our assemblies this week has been to remind girls of the power of words following on from Shakespeare Day at the end of last week. They were reminded how much words can hurt people and how important it is to think before we speak. Saying sorry and accepting apologies were included in the theme, in addition to making sure we do not let issues brew but sort them as soon as possible.
There were congratulations to Years 1 and 2 with the award of the weekly Well Done certificates and special awards to the girls who had produced some independent work in line with World Penguin Day on 25 April. The number of girls who take up the challenges presented to them are always impressive.
We are also delighted by the number of girls who are taking advantage of the cricket and tennis coaching, fencing and ballet opportunities available in our after school clubs.
Next week Year 5 girls are looking forward to their Eco Education Week with activities similar to those they would have experienced at Cranedale on their residential trip and we hope that everyone enjoys the bank holiday weekend.
See you all on Tuesday ready for another busy week!

Head of Preparatory School
