Head's Words Summer Term Week 12
Wow! I cannot believe I am writing my last Bulletin of the year. I know I say it every year but this year really has flown by. My main purpose here is to round up the year (without spoiling our surprises for Thursday!) and also to say thank you.
Once again we end the year on more girls than ever, proving that our identity as Junior Girls at Claires remains strong. Our growing popularity is also testament to our amazing girls who work so hard in all areas of School life. The last few weeks seem to have encapsulated so much that happens at School in a very short time; from the Lower Junior Swimming Gala to the Summer Concert to Sports Day to Problem Solving Week!
The girls continue to prove themselves as enthusiastic learners who strive to do their very best. Problem Solving Week has demonstrated their ability to collaborate, risk take and solve quite tricky problems!
We have had a wonderful year full of magical memories which will last with us for a very long time. I would like to thank of all you for your continued support and for helping Claires Court Junior Girls become stronger and better. We sadly must say goodbye to pupils and teachers who, in their own individually way, have made a difference to us all.
Mrs Arnold has been at Claires Court for a relatively short time, but in that short time she has made a huge impact. She has built strong relationships with the girls, staff and parents alike. Joe is creative, upbeat and has an enormous passion for education. The sign on the Year 4 classroom reads: "Sorry about the laughter, volume, chaos and mess, but we are learning!" This captures Joe's lessons perfectly. Whenever I go into the Year 4 classroom, the girls have beaming smiles and a fantastic work ethic. They make excellent progress whilst having fun - what more could you ask for!
Joe will be sorely missed from the Junior Girls team but we wish her all the best in her new role.
We must also say farewell to Miss Foster. Miss Foster joined us in October and has made a significant difference to the pupils she works with. She has a wonderful energy and always wears a smile. Lucy is leaving us to progress with her dancing career and we wish her all the best.
To the girls who are leaving us… we will all miss you but we will remember the memories and the friendships that have been made will, I know, remain strong.
I hope you have a wonderful summer filled with enjoyment and time spent with family and friends.
