Mrs Heywood's Words Lent 2
Year 10 and 11 artists visited the Victoria and Albert Museum on Wednesday to view the 'Fashioned from Nature Exhibition' which fitted perfectly with the Year 10s 'Natural World' project and Year 11 ' Reflection' examination project.
We hope that the inspiration gained from seeing the work of the world’s greatest Fashion Designers will give them that extra motivation as they continue with their GCSE courses.
As ever the start of term, is always brimming with activities and I was so pleased to hear that two of our intrepid chefs, Elicia Mercer and Seren Mehmet G10, shook up the Springboard Future Chef Competition by delighting the judges with their culinary expertise and irresistible courses. Seren achieved an amazing third place in the competition and Elicia who came second goes forward to compete in the South East Regional Final in Crawley. Thank you to Kerry Irons for her continued hard work, support and enthusiasm in getting the girls prepared for this prestigious event.
On Tuesday we enjoyed the Years 5-11 Vocal Recital, which took place in the Chapel. A wide and varied range of solos were sung to an extremely high standard. Many thanks to both Veronica Challis and Freyja Barter for preparing the pupils for their performances.
Next week on Wednesday evening Mrs Rogers, Head of Sixth Form, Miss Bhajwa, Head of Careers, and Helen Cole, our External Careers Adviser, will be holding an information evening ‘Looking Beyond GCSE’ aimed at our Year 10 pupils and parents. We are very grateful for their expertise and look forward to the evening. Do please come along next week and find out more. I hope that you will be able to attend this useful and informative evening and I look forward to seeing you there.
On Friday 25 January our Senior Girls Harmony Choir have an exciting outreach opportunity to perform at Alwyn School as part of their music week, a fantastic opportunity for us to share the talents of our students within the local community.
Have a lovely weekend.
