It was great to see so many of you on Friday. It was the best supported Bonfire Night for some years, so thank you to all who attended, to the parents and staff who helped, and in particular to Mrs Barraud and Mr Clarke for all their work in preparing and running the evening. The fireworks were spectacular!
This week was one of the occasions when the older children were gripped by events in the wider world, namely the election of president Trump. Many of us have been engaged in conversation by the children about our reaction to the result and our view of the new president. It is great to see the children’s interest in American politics and their concern about what sort of president Mr Trump will be.
Today, the eleventh day of the eleventh month, is Remembrance Day. We marked this with an informative and thoughtful assembly from Form 7G and Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 sang a Remembrance Song beautifully. We also observed the national two minute silence at 11.00. The Year 1 and Year 2 children have also created some lovely art and writing on the theme of Remembrance and the symbol of the poppy.
These two events have been a great reminder of how interested and thoughtful the children are about the past and about the present; and how important it is to encourage them to ask questions about both.
BHCC Wine and Cheese Tasting
This takes place this evening in the Refectory, starting at 7.00pm. There are still tickets available so do come and join us.
The car park at pickup time
Now that it is getting dark at 4.30pm it is even more important that once you have collected your child from the Lower she or he stays with you until you are in your car. The risk of an accident when unsupervised children are around moving cars is significant. Thank you for your support with this.
With best wishes for the weekend
