Open Morning

Our whole school Open Morning is tomorrow between 10.00am-12.30pm, so if you know anyone who might be interested in visiting us, please invite them to come along.  We are now taking registrations to join our Nursery in September 2016 for Reception entry in September 2018 – girls with a date of birth between 1st September 2016 - 31st August 2017.

 

Winter Wear!

In this cold weather the girls still go out for morning break and to play at lunchtime.  It is therefore essential that they have hats, scarves and gloves to wear every day.  Too many girls have neither hat, scarf or gloves and it is just too cold not to be wrapped up as warm as they can be.  Hats are available from the school office, navy gloves and navy scarves can be purchased from any high street shop or supermarket.  Navy and burgundy school scarves are available from Alleycatz.  Please ensure name labels are attached to each item.

 

This weekend please repair any broken loops in duffle coats so that they can be hung up properly and NOT by their hoods!  There will be an inspection on MONDAY!!

 

If we should experience further snow or sleet showers, please allow your daughter to come to school in appropriate footwear ie: snow boots or wellingtons and she can change into her dry school shoes.  School shoes are not suitable for outdoor play in the snow.

 

AlleyCatz Delivery

If you need any items of school uniform, the next AlleyCatz free delivery to school will be next Tuesday 10th February – however orders placed on Monday evening will be unlikely to be included!

 

Wow Badge Competition

We are still taking entries for the ‘Design a Wow Badge’ competition.  If you would like to enter a design there is still time and we will accept entries up to the 23rd February, so you have half term to get creative!

Sports Report

 

On Wednesday 28th January 6 girls from Forms III-VI went to Bramley for a cross country competition. We were lucky with the weather as it stopped raining as the races were about to start!  Form IV were first to race. They all ran very well and showed the rest of us what to do!  Form V were next and they all ran very well, especially Georgia who came 1st out of all twelve runners.  Form VI ran next and showed good pacing skills.  I tracked the Bramley girls very well and came in 2nd place and Phoebe-Rose came 4th. Last to run were the Form III’s. They had watched and learnt a lot from the previous races and all showed great determination to win. Chiara led the race from the start and set a fast pace. She won the race and Alice came in 3rd place. We all ran very well and gained certificates and Georgia and Chiara won medals. Thank you to Mr Ford who paced round the course to work out the Form III & IV races were approximately 1110m and the form V & VI races were 1332m. Also thank you to Mr Martin who took lots of great photos and to all the parents who came to show their support.
