A short update today, I promise!
This morning’s Carol Concert was a lovely celebration of the term. We so wanted to invite all our parents, but we had the face the reality of a lack of space. We are looking at lots of creative ways to allow more parents to be involved next year, but in the meantime we have uploaded some lovely photos and videos. I don’t think I was the only one to shed a few tears during Asel’s solo at the beginning of ‘We’re walking in the air’. Who would have believed that she joined us only a few months ago with very limited English!
Thank you to all our singers and to our music teachers, Miss Rowan and Mr Widger, for leading such an active music programme in the school.
Earlier in the week, we had a glorious Year 1-style interpretation on the ‘Prickly Hay Nativity’. Enjoy the photos here. This was followed by our Year 5 to 8 Great Sleigh Debate, with some impressive performances in these older year groups. Click here.
Class Christmas Lunches
Thank you to our PTA, parent reps and volunteers who made our student Christmas parties such a lot of fun. A lot of work and organisation goes into making these parties such fun for all our children (and teachers!). Click here for some photos.
Parent Workshops – Term 2
We really encourage parents to come into the school and learn more – and give us feedback – on the way we teach. I’m delighted to attach the timetable of workshops for next term. These will also be available on the website and Firefly.

Message from Miss Rowan:
“I am delighted to offer a limited number of spaces for piano, guitar, cello, flute and clarinet lessons from January. Lessons are $3000 for 10 half hour lessons, and $6000 for one hour lessons. The schedule is rotated during the day on a weekly basis so that pupils do not miss the same lesson time every week. If you would like a lesson starting in January, please send me an email as soon as possible (firstname.lastname@example.org) to avoid disappointment. Lessons will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis and confirmation will be given on 4th January. Have a wonderful Christmas and a heartfelt congratulations to both of our primary choirs who sang fantastically today!”
Today we say farewell to Mila, Maya, Flavia and Justin. We want to wish them all the best in their new adventures in New York, the UK and China. Please stay in touch with your Nord Anglia friends!
In return, we will be joined by 40 new children and we know you’ll all help us to welcome them into our friendly school community.
Finally, Mr. Cooklin has asked to wish you all the very best as you enjoy this festive holiday with your family and friends. We look forward to seeing you back on 4 January.
