As Michael Phelps once said “ nothing is impossible. With so many people saying it couldn’t be done, all it takes is an imagination.” With this in mind our pupils enjoyed splashing away their thoughts today in their first swimming lesson this year.

This week we had our third House dress-up day, to raise money for and awareness of the Foster Charity, ESMA. ESMA provides shelter and medication for many homeless and abandoned animals in Cairo.

Well done and thank you to all staff, pupils and parents who supported this event. We will be consulting with the charity and our House Captains on how best to use the money.
Year 5 were taken on a magic carpet ride during the traditional Arabian folktale ‘Ali Baba and the 4 Thieves’ at the Sitara theatre company. With interactive theatre plus a dancing donkey, puppets and masks, music and madness, we enjoyed an unforgettable experience ! The children read the story of Ali Baba and then predicted how the playwright would approach various scenes in the play and discussed their predictions in the post-show talk. Pupils also developed their listening skills and a love of storytelling and literacy in general.

The children lined up to receive their backpacks and they were so excited as our children handed them their gifts. The faces of the littlest children through to the bigger ones were so happy they all lit up with a huge smile as they opened each one to see the wonderful things you had put inside. I am so proud […]
We were lucky enough to receive a visit from Santa Claus. The children were so excited and happy to see him.
