The school was a much quieter place without our 54 Year 5s and the 6 staff who accompanied them to Ironbridge for their first residential trip away. They had a great few days, enjoying the opportunity to learn away from the classroom and to spend time away with their friends. There is so much to do around that area and they packed in many different activities. My thanks to all the staff who accompanied the trip. Residential trips are very exhausting for everyone, I am sure they are glad it is Friday!
My thanks also to the FOG reps and Mrs Page in particular for organising another Pamper Evening for us last night. There was a great range of therapists in attendance and an opportunity to shop and have a drink. What's not to like! While the ladies were being pampered, 30 of our Year 5 and 6 pupils were taking in some culture. Mrs O'Hare was invited to take some pupils with her to Pipers Corner School to see a Fourways Theare open-air production of Richard III. I hear that it was fantastic and everyone enjoyed themselves even if the weather was not as warm as they had hoped!
Our Year 6 pupils faced some tough opposition at the Independent Schools Association Athletics meet this week. Well done to all those who took part and to many of our athletes for getting gold and qualifying for the National Finals in Birmingham. The U11 Football team are in action today in the ISA finals - I am sure they will have a great day and play their very best.
