Weekly News - Monday 3rd - Friday 7th December 2018

We enjoyed a very special, festive assembly on Monday 3rd December.  Our beautiful tree, kindly gifted to the school, was once again expertly decorated by Noreen, ready for our youngest member of Form One to turn on the lights, with the help of our oldest child in Form Six.  Form One also placed the first three figures on Mrs. Silke's colourful Peruvian advent calendar.  As we sang our first carol of the year together the atmosphere and excitement of Christmas was well and truly alive.

Monday 3rd December is also our last full length day until the 14th December.  There is no Chess Club until January.

On Tuesday 4th December Forms Three and Four will perform their Dress Rehearsal for the rest of the school.  All classes from Forms One to Six will end at 1:00pm until 14th December.  Kids Club will be open as usual.  There will be no swimming or hockey for the next two weeks.
