This week has been full of shared experiences for the girls.  It began with the launch of the GSA Poetry competition called ‘Let me Put You on Speaker.’ The theme is based on friendships and ally ship and is being judged by poet Karen McCarthy Woolf and we are looking forward to reading the poems girls in Years 3 – 6 compose.

At mid-morning our Year 4 adventurers set off for their residential trip to Boreatton Park in Shropshire which you can read about in the additional article. We wished them well and enjoyed hearing all about their exploits on their return.  We wish good luck to Year 5 who are the next girls attending a week away from home.

Tuesday afternoon gave girls from Reception to Year 5 the opportunity to join Year 6 as they gave their first performance of Peter Pan for their dress rehearsal.  The audience returned to Prep buzzing with excitement and appreciation of the performance.  The girls went on to perform for their parents and friends on Wednesday evening with a final show planned for Friday. The audience left full of admiration and very proud of their daughters and all of their hard work.

Our Thursday morning assembly was held in the Octagon and again was a shared experience for all of the girls from Years 1 – 6, cheered on by Mrs Macro and girls from Kindergarten and Reception, as they performed a range of songs in celebration of the forthcoming coronation.  The girls are looking forward to further celebrations as the event approaches.

Friday brought our customary Celebration Assembly although not in our Prep Hall which was taken over by Jungle Jonathan, providing a rainforest experience for Year 4 girls which we will report on next week.

This week we gave congratulations to Emiley, Zoe, Anna and Jashvita and their parents after taking part in the challenging WOLF Run last weekend. There were also individual awards for Anna for Gymnastics Level 6 and for her tennis achievement, Jashvita for swimming Level 4, Ellise for becoming a Mini First Aider and Bonnie for her ‘Let’s Fish’ award.  There were Independent Learning awards too, for Hana and Jashvita for their entries in the Spring Geography Challenge to research unusual sports and to Supreeta and Jessie for their individual work on friendship.

There were also congratulations to some of our pianists.  Well done to Arabella Armstrong, Grade 1, Emily Hadley, Charlotte Smiley and Asees Nagra, Grade 2.

Well done also to everyone for all that has been achieved this week and we wish everyone a most enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend.
