Dear Parents,

Well done to all our parents who attended this morning’s FCS Health and Fitness morning and participated in one of our exercise classes.  We hope you found the morning enjoyable and educational.

There was a wonderful atmosphere this morning as the children all congregated for a short fitness class at 7am.  They were certainly energised for their day ahead.  As the children filed their way back to the classrooms parents gathered together to enjoy a morning of health and fitness with some engaging in Yoga, Boxercise and other keep fit classes.  The morning was very much about finding out more about keeping healthy and sampling the numerous opportunities on offer within our community.  Mornings such as these are also an opportunity for parents to meet other parents and have an informal chat with members of the Compass Gharaffa school team.  Thank you once again to our excellent FCS team who pulled the morning together at short notice.  We hope our parents enjoyed the morning.

Last week, students and staff from Compass Madinat Khalifa secondary school visited Gharaffa to give a preview of life at the secondary campus.  Thank you to parents who were able to attend.  Children and parents left the presentation feeling encouraged that the obvious next step for our Year 6 pupils is Madinat Khalifa secondary.  We were all impressed to hear about the exceptional academic results and find out more about the wide amount of opportunities such as joining the school ‘Funkadelic’ orchestra or choir, taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh programme or travelling to Tanzania.  The opportunities presented at the showcase were exciting and endless.  Students who are currently studying IB (International Baccalaureate) addressed the audience in an intelligent, articulate manner, informing the children and parents about their experience.  If parents would like to find out more about our school’s secondary provision, please contact Tom Douche who is located at the Madinat Khalifa campus.

On Thursday, Year 2D shared their learning in assembly.  Dressed as skeletons the children shared knowledge and skills from their IPC unit, Superhumans.  Lines were delivered confidently and we all enjoyed a rendition of the song, ‘Dem Bones…’  Well done, to the Year 2D team.  Later in the day, Mr Mannings led a Music Ensemble in the Early Years outdoor classroom.  Children who haven’t previously had the opportunity to perform in public played exceptionally well.  We hope our budding musicians keep up the good work.

This week we are enjoying our school Sports Days.  I hope parents are able to support their children by coming along to the events.

Next week, the school will be closed for one week for the half term break.  We look forward to seeing our families on Sunday 17 February.  Enjoy your holiday.

 

Kind regards,

Karen Wilson

Head of Gharaffa campus
