The set hot lunch for next week will be Week 1 of the Summer Term Menu although Thursday's
meal will be fish fingers/breaded chicken strips, chips and peas instead of the roast pork.
Congratulations go to a team of Year 6 sportsmen this week. In a term where cricket opportunities have been greatly curtailed, a group of Year 6 boys performed excellently at the ISA Festival of Sport in Nottingham last weekend, the ten boys earning a whole host of medals between them! Read more about it later in the Bulletin.
Today all the boys will be taking part in their sports day and we hope the showers will not be too heavy or prolonged, but will allow the boys to enjoy their athletics.
We now have a busy last week of term to look forward to with the Olympic Torch Relay on Tuesday, Concerts and Prize Giving on Wednesday, International Picnic for the pre-prep on Thursday, Year 6 Leavers Assembly also on Thursday and end of term at noon on Friday.
A full write up will follow in next week's bulletin.
Year 1 enjoyed a memorable visit to Windsor Castle on Thursday. After looking round St George's Chapel they watched the changing of the guard and listened to the band. A kind policeman allowed the boys to stand across the road as they were so impeccably behaved and this afforded a wonderful view of the bands and the guards leaving the castle. The boys were inspired and ‘marched’ to the Education centre where they listened to a talk and all tried on various pieces of child size armour. They ended the day by looking round the State Apartments inside the castle and departed by quickly running under the murder holes in the gateway roof! Mrs Murphy was delighted by the boys' excellent behaviour and received a compliment on how well they behaved they were from another visitor to the castle.
The cricket team photographs were given out to boys yesterday. A charge will be placed on your end of term bill for the photo/photos. Should it not be required then please return it to the Ridgeway Office by MONDAY 9 JULY. Unless returned we shall assume that you wish to purchase it.
Mrs Vine is offering an additional Mindlab lesson on Tuesday 10 July to make up for the week that she was unable to do. Please be reminded, however, that there are no late coaches during the last week of term so your son will need to be collected from Ridgeway at 5pm.
There are no more activities this term (apart from the Mindlab lesson mentioned above.). The activity form for the autumn term will be distributed on the first week back.
This will take place during the morning of Wednesday 11 July. The morning will start with coffee on the terrace at 10.30am followed at 11.00am by a presentation in the Sports’ Hall of “Going for Gold” by all Pre-Prep pupils.
N.B. Please note: After this concert, the children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 should be collected at 12.00 noon when the school day for them will end. No lunch will be served on this day. Boys in Junior Prep will need to bring in a packed lunch.
This will take place on Wednesday 11 July. The concert will start at 1.30pm with a presentation of “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat” by pupils in the Junior-Prep department in the Sports' Hall.
New Parents and pupils will be spending the afternoon with us and I am sure they will enjoy a friendly welcome!
PLEASE MAY WE ASK YOU TO CAR-SHARE WHERE AT ALL POSSIBLE TO HELP WITH THE PARKING ARRANGEMENTS.
The Year 6 Leavers Assembly is taking place on Thursday 14 July 9.30 - 10.30. All Year 6 parents are invited to attend.
Our Pre-Prep boys will be enjoying their International Picnic during the afternoon.
Please note on Friday 13 July, school will finish at 12.00 noon. To help with the car parking arrangements can we ask parents of boys in Years 4, 5 and 6 to pick up slightly later at 12.15pm. Coach boys will leave Ridgeway at 12.00 noon, travelling to the College for 12.15 and Claires Court at 12.30pm for collection or onward buses.
