Head's Words Lent Term Week 8
“Take every chance, drop every fear and always reach for the stars!”
This week has been our 3for3 Charity Week. The girls have organised and participated in a number of fundraising activities to raise money for our 3 chosen charities: Rosie’s Rainbow Fund, Thames Valley Hospice and Helen & Douglas House. In Tuesday’s assembly, four 6th Formers presented their fundraising activity (a fun run on Monday 7th March) to the Girls. It has been wonderful to see the acts of kindness from the girls, many of which have been new and innovative ideas to raise money for those who are suffering.
Tuesday afternoon saw our Reception to Year 4 girls, wow us with their musical talent in their Spring Concert. We enjoyed solo performances, group pieces and whole school songs - “When Somebody Loved Me” brought me to tears!
On Wednesday night, Rachael Williams held a talk on building resilience in young people. Her passion and knowledge was infectious and your knowledge was invaluable. Our thanks to her for a fantastically informative, relevant and meaningful talk which was rich with evidence and strategies to help young people build resilience for not only their future but for their present.
The girls have been extremely busy this week and have all been fantastic role models, living by our Golden Rules and Values in everything they have done.
As I write this, the ISA Drama group are rehearsing for their competition on Friday afternoon at Hurst Lodge. Good luck to everyone involved!
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
Next week is particularly busy! We have 3for3 Charity week so a lot of fundraising events will be taking place everyday. Each class will be doing something different; Class Teachers will give you information on what your daughter is involved in.
