As you will imagine the week has been very different here in Pre-Prep due to rehearsals and the like, so the usual class round ups do not follow, instead we hope you will enjoy a small selection of photographs taken this week.

Don’t forget the following events next week: on Monday, it is Open Classrooms, which we hope you will be able to attend.  On the same day, it is the Prep Carol Service at St Mary’s Church, Hampton; this starts at 6.30pm and if any Pre-Prep siblings attend, it is important they wear their school uniform please.  Tuesday 13th December will be an extremely busy day here at Pre-Prep, as in the morning we have our ‘Christmas Merrie’.  The children may come to school in their own clothes for the day but, as per my earlier letter, nothing too smart please, as we will be involved in some messy activities during the morning. Christmas lunch follows this and then it will be time for the Golden Treat in the afternoon to top off our festive fun.


This week the Courtesy Cup and Badge went to Akshen (Year 1) for always being so kind-hearted and polite to his teachers and friends.  Akshen – you are a star!


and Stars of the Week were awarded to:

Year 2: Ollie for his stellar performance in our Christmas Production!

Year 1: Chuck for his incredible energy and performance skills during our Christmas Production.

Reception: Kostya for being extremely kind and helpful with his friends.


Mrs Tinkler came to assembly yesterday on behalf of the JTAs to congratulate the two Pre-Prep banner winners – very well done to Hari (Year 2) and Ahana (Year 2) for their colourful creations.  You will shortly see these adorning the School driveways here and at Prep site, all showing important road safety and environmental messages.


Many congratulations to Rory (Year 2) for winning the Man of the Match trophy from his football team at the weekend.


Don’t forget the Christmas post box remains open until the end of day on Monday 12th December – this weekend is the last chance for the children to write cards to their friends in school.


As the days get colder, it is important that the children wear their school coats, rather than just blazers, to school – blue school hats and scarves are also a must please!


Lastly, my colleagues join me in wishing you all a fabulous Christmas – we hope you have plenty of rest and relaxation over the holidays.
