Family Newsletter Week 4

Dear families,

What a mixed weekend weatherwise. I hope you enjoyed the changes!

Last week’s primary trip to the festa major at Sant Pere was a great success.

Thank you to families who went along to support the children.

And we would like to thank Bea for her inspiring talk on her work with the LGBT refugee community in Barcelona.

Some great things coming up this week, too…

 

World Storytelling Week

We celebrate this week in our primary classrooms by telling popular tales, rewriting them with alternative endings, dressing up, and other exciting activities!

Year 8 Families’ Meeting on Model United Nations trip to Madrid, Summer Term

A reminder for Year 8 families that this Friday at 3.00 there will be a meeting about the option of  your son/daughter attending the MUN conference in Madrid between 6th-8th April.

Movie Night

Friday 2nd, 4.15- 5.45

Our Events Committee has organised a movie night for all ages.

Four films will be shown in four mini-cinemas in our classrooms, complete with popcorn and drinks.

Tickets for this Movie Night are on sale in the entrance hall every morning and evening this week.

Parents are very welcome to come and see a movie too!

 

Open Morning for Prospective Pupils

Tuesday 27th February,  9.30-11.30

As usual at this time of year, we open our classrooms to prospective families.

Please let your friends and acquaintances know that they are welcome to drop in and see our teaching and learning in action towards the end of next month.

Thank you for spreading the word-  and for sharing the FaceBook ad about this Open Morning if you can.

Becoming a Cambridge International School

We are considering the option of becoming a Cambridge International school. This is costly but it would give us access to teaching a slightly wider choice of GCSE subjects to our 14-16 year olds,  and at 16 our pupils could sit their final exams at school rather than as external candidates at the British Council.

We held a meeting last Friday at some parents’ request, as they had proposed some ideas for raising the money to pay for this.

The minutes from this meeting are attached here. Your feedback or questions are welcome on this topic.

See you during the week!

Audrey
