Mrs Heywood's Words Autumn 6
Great success on the sports field last week with a wonderful individual and team effort from the U16 Hockey squad featuring girls from Years 8 to 11.
The squad had wins against High Down, The Holt School and St Mary’s Ascot to gain their place in the semi-final and were extremely disappointed not to qualify as they were on top of the game throughout the match and sadly did not manage to get the ball past the Maiden Erleigh goalkeeper, losing 1-0.
‘Libraries Week’ is a celebration of the nation’s much-loved libraries and we are certainly lucky to have such a welcoming and passionate librarians here at Senior Girls. This week celebrates and explore how libraries are engaging communities through technology; building digital skills and confidence; encouraging digital participation and inclusion; supporting health, wellbeing and education; and supporting local business and enterprise. We were thrilled that after all their efforts two of our pupils made the ‘Celebration Day Poster’ with the College Site ‘Poet-Tree’!
As part of the celebrations, Year 7 pupils are taking part in the International School Library Bookmark Exchange programme, an annual event for pupils worldwide to make and share a bookmark with a pupil in a school library in another country. This year we are exchanging bookmarks with the Delhi World Public School in India.
Mrs Copemam and Mrs Kirkup are also delighted as the Year 7’s have really embraced the programme and they have already received a beautiful hand-crafted fabric Harry Potter-themed bookmarks less than 24 hours since the task was set! It’s totally made their day.
More excellent news to report about next week with successes in abundance in all age groups at the ISA London West Art Competition.
We look forward to seeing you at our Junior Boys School tomorrow for the ‘Fireworks & Halloween Spectacular’, and fingers crossed for the weather!
