This week the talents of your children have shone in a variety of performances.
On Sunday the back lawn and outside stage became the venue for ‘Proms in the Park’. We were treated to dance, music and LAMDA performances, with children from Pre-Prep to Year 7 taking the stage individually and in groups. A huge thank you to Jackie Morris, who compered the whole event and to all the parents who helped with setting up, serving the food and drinks, the raffle and with clearing up afterwards. A special mention to Mrs Barraud, our Operations Manager, her husband, Guy, and her son, Josh, who worked throughout the day. The whole afternoon was a wonderful celebration of our talented Barrow Hills community.
On Thursday the doors to Fat Sam’s night club were thrown open, welcoming the audience to the Year 6 show, ‘Bugsy Malone’. The children performed this complicated and challenging show with great skill and real enjoyment. Their accents, acting, singing and dancing were all spot on. Well done, and thank you Year 6, for a very entertaining production. And thank you to Mrs Mason and to Mr Wardell, who prepared the children so well for this performance and for all the other shows we have enjoyed this school year.
This afternoon the Pre-Prep children put on a fantastic show based on the ‘round the world’ theme of their expressive arts week. Children from Nursery to Year 2 performed songs and dances from Peru, Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, Australia and Africa. The Year 2 children also enlightened us with a range of facts about these counties. Thank you to Mr Wardell, Mrs Pulleyn and to all the Pre-Prep teachers who inspired the children to perform so confidently.
At the beginning of assembly this morning the Year 6 children appeared to have mislaid their values! They showed the school a film in which they made a journey with our chaplain, Mrs Nicholls, to find the values they had lost; a journey which began and ended at Barrow Hills. Well done Year 6 for reminding us all that Barrow Hills is the place where your values begin and end!
First Tuesday of the Month Mass
The 4th July sees our First Tuesday of the Month (FTM) Mass, at 07.50 in the Chapel. Please do join us. It is a short Mass, finished by 08.20, and a lovely way to start your day. The May and June Masses were rather sparsely attended. It would be great to have parents join us on Tuesday.
