Pre-Prep Open Homework


School Council met for the first time this week and it was exciting to report the new councillors all took to their role with aplomb; it was super to hear their insightful views on different aspects of school life. In addition to discussions about charitable support and healthy school lunches, our Pre-Prep School councillors were involved in conversations about shaping the Golden Time activity list and end of term Golden Treat.


We have been working very hard to instil a better understanding of the first of our Golden Rules – Do Be Gentle – in particular, dissuading the children from indulging in rough and tumble, racing and chasing type games. Be assured such games are not condoned in any way as inevitably someone ends up with bumps and bruises, which we simply do not want. Councillors proffered some sensible suggestions for creating harmonious playground games and breaktimes in general, which we will be following up.


Year 2 led our assembly today, transporting us on a wonderful journey to the continent of Africa.  They amazed with interesting facts related to this fascinating part of the world, wowed with their singing in different languages and entertained with their enthusiastic retelling of Julia Donaldson’s, The Ugly Five – thank you, Year 2!


This week the Courtesy Cup and Badge went to George Farrow for consistent and excellent polite behaviour.
