Our value this term is Compassion.

Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. Matthew 20:34


PTA Marathon

What a blast! The marathon is always a joyful event but the PTA really surpassed themselves with the colour run, which was inspired by Millicent. The children showed great resilience and collectively achieved a massive 7 marathons. Rupert achieved the most laps in the Cygnets and Harriet in the Swans. Archie and Arianne were awarded medals for exceptional effort, but everyone deserves a huge well done!

Mock Trial

What a fabulous job the Year 5&6s team did at the Mock Trial, gaining four out of the six prizes available!  Best individual performance went to Guy, Court Reporter to Morgan, best individual costume to Millicent and best overall costumes to the whole team. The impressive surroundings of the court room enabled everyone to inhabit their role and play their part to the best of their ability. Our defence solicitors asked insightful questions; our witnesses withstood the fierce probing of the prosecution team; our usher upheld the formality of the court; our court reporter described all events as they unfolded; our court artist provided a snapshot of the action; our magistrates did their best to remain neutral. After dramatic twists and turns, the verdict was given… GUILTY.  Fortunately, our defendant was allowed to return to school a free man, but we all learned many valuable lessons about the justice system and rule of law (although for some the best part was the juice and biscuits at the end!)
