This week we have been looking at ways in which we judge people: perhaps mistaking their true qualities by judging them on appearances. Ask your child about Monday’s Assembly, in which I asked them to look in a mirror and describe what they saw. This was followed up in Chapel and tutor sessions. It is always valuable if children can develop their thoughts with you at home as well.
I am delighted to be able to announce two great success in Senior School Scholarships: Joe Lewis has been awarded a Sports Scholarship to Wellington College, and Poppy Johnson has been awarded an Academic Scholarship to Wellington College. Well done both of you! We are still waiting for a couple of results to conclude this term’s round, with still more being competed for next term.
Our U13 and U11 Netball teams have been exceptionally busy today, playing in the National Finals at Basildon. Even though each team began with gusto and great success (U13s won their first five matches), neither managed to sustain this right to the end. The U13s came 3rd in their Group, and the U11s came 7th. I would point out that the U13 have done incredibly well considering that there are so few girls in Year 8 this year. Great effort girls.
Other sporting activities have been as energetic as ever this week, with inter-house cross country and house hockey added to the many school matches played.
As we set off on Exeat, I can see the Year 6 & 7 children getting themselves ready for their Disco. Adults have ear plugs ready. Have a good weekend.
