Form V Cycling
The gate by the bike rack will be open on Monday and Tuesday morning
next week at 8.00am to accept bikes from Form V. Please remember that ALL bikes must be
collected on Thursday afternoon as we are breaking up for half term!
If your daughter comes into School on Monday morning well enough to
attend lessons, then she is deemed to be well enough to swim in the
afternoon. Also it would be helpful when
dressing after swimming, if you daughter is wearing tights to school, that she
packs a pair of long white socks to put on after swimming to facilitate speed
In response to the comments of our Nursery parents, we have now introduced
plain navy tracksuit bottoms and plain white polo shirts as uniform. Please continue to wear the uniform you have
until you need to replace it. The navy
tracksuit bottoms are not so thick around the waist and we hope the plain white
polo shirts will be easier to wash. The
Kukri sweatshirt is still compulsory Nursery uniform. These new items are available to purchase
online via AlleyCatz.
Remember the next FREE AlleyCatz
delivery is on Tuesday 21st October.
All orders must be collected by Thursday 23rd before we break
up for half term.

Letters and sponsorship forms went home last week in advance of the
visit of Danny Lawrence on Thursday 23rd October. These should be completed and returned to the
School Office before we break up for half term.
On Thursday 23rd October ALL girls from Reception to Form VI
should come to school wearing their PE kit, which they will remain in all
day. Tracksuit bottoms should be worn
over shorts (Junior House) and over skorts (Senior House) as it can become very
hot in the Hall. All items of clothing
must be clearly named to avoid any articles going astray!
Following our Harvest Celebrations this week, our Form VI girls will be
visiting the residents of Eversfield House in Sutton on Wednesday 22nd
October. The residents always look
forward to the visit of our Form VI girls and can we remind them to bring in a
small bunch of flowers on that morning to present to a resident of the home.
A huge thank you to everyone for their generous donations of
produce. Our Harvest display looked
fantastic and we are keeping this on the stage for tomorrow’s Open Morning, except
for the Harvest Loaf which was taken to Eversfield House this afternoon.

the 8th October the under 11'A' team home game was another hard contest against
a strong Cumnor House side, they won the toss and chose first centre pass. The
first quarter was a fast paced close encounter with Angelique converting one of
our attacks with a great goal. We had to defend for long periods in the second
and third quarters, but we all worked extremely hard with some excellent
interceptions and great passing, the teams hard work paid off in the last
quarter with Lucy H scoring without a doubt the goal of the game, a powerful
long distance shot straight through the net, a few moments later after some
good passing throughout the team Lucy H capped off a great game with another
fantastic goal. Great team effort. Well

On Thursday 16th
October the under eleven A team played against Greenacre. They won the toss and
chose first centre pass. Luckily they were a reasonable height so it wasn’t
hard to defend them. They were however, a strong team and in the first half
they scored 3 goals. Leaving the end of the first half score 3-0 to them. We upped
our game with Lucy Rush defending well. We prevented Greenacre from scoring any
further goals in the last half and Lucy H scored a great goal for us. The final
score was 3-1 to them. Well played everyone and a big thank you to all involved
in a delicious and much needed match tea.
On 16th October Form
IV played against Greenacre School. We
won the toss and chose first centre pass.
In the first half of the game we got the ball on our side, unfortunately
we did not score a goal. Greenacre girls
got the ball on their side and managed to score two goals. In the second half we got the ball on our
side but unfortunately missed again.
Greenacre got the ball on their side and scored a goal again. The final score was 3-0 to Greenacre. Well done everyone, we will beat them next
