In yesterday’s assembly, Mr Smith introduced the children to the French word outré in connection with our theme ‘Dare to Be Different’, explaining it means “excessive, extreme, exaggerated,” is indeed a past participle of the French verb outrer “to push or go beyond the limits.”  Reiterating that it takes strength, courage and bravery to be different, the assembly finished with us all agreeing that here at Hampton Pre-Prep & Prep, we are happy to be different at our school.

This week the Courtesy Cup and Badge went to Charles (Year 2) for being kind and courteous to his teachers, and for upholding the School value of honesty.

and Stars of the Week were awarded to:

Year 2: Chuck for bringing positivity, fun and a “can-do” attitude to the classroom.  Keep up the super work, Chuck!

Year 1: Henry M-J for demonstrating amazing enthusiasm for our space topic, and recalling lots of key facts and vocabulary.

Reception: Finlay R for trying so hard in all his independent writing tasks – well done, Finlay!

Many congratulations to the following children:  Varun (Year 1) for completing the Learn to Cycle course at the Bike Academy and Harry (Year 2) for being awarded player of the week for amazing bowling and batting at his cricket club.

Have a super weekend.
