It already feels like a long time since the holidays, despite us only being back in school a week! I hope you all had a good break, though, and your children are feeling refreshed and ready for another exciting half term.
Already we have plenty going on: this week, our under 19s badminton squad continued their record of success in the city championships with yet more medal winners.
Today, our year 13 A level art students have been out and about visiting some of Saigon’s numerous galleries for inspiration, and you’ll be able to read all about that next week.
The house basketball competition starts next week, so make sure your child signs up with their house captains for what I’m sure will once again be a close-fought event.
You will also be receiving letters shortly regarding the forthcoming residential trips for years 7-10. These will be taking place from Tuesday, 29 November to Friday 2 December, and all students are expected to attend. They are of course great fun and a wonderful experience for all.
Slightly less fun, but equally important, will be the mock examinations for years 11-13 taking place the same week.
More information about these and other issues in school, including careers and universities guidance, can be discussed at our forthcoming coffee mornings, on the following dates:
- Tuesday, 15th November Key Stage 4
- Thursday, 17th November Key Stage 5
- Wednesday, 23rd November Key Stage 3
More details will be sent to you in due course.
Have a wonderful weekend.
