Dear families,

Last Wednesday we hosted a wild and wonderful performance in our theatre of the Institute of the Arts’ Alice in Wonderland.

Years 3 – 9 enjoyed some exciting physical theatre played by the students now completing their Acting BA at the institute.

Forest School (currently for Years 5 and 6) is providing rich opportunities for communication, problem-solving and innovative thinking! Some intricate tool-making and shelter-building has been the focus this term.

Week 6

This week, all our pupils (except Year 11) will enjoy a residential stay away from home and school.
Colonias are a fundamental part of every pupil’s annual learning, providing unique opportunities for collaborative projects, outdoor learning, independence from family and self-discovery.
Colonias are for all our pupils, unless of course there is a medical or other reason why you consider it inadvisable for your child. This means that almost all our teaching staff will be accompanying the trips and school has no lessons running on colonias dates. We are sorry if this inconveniences any families but school will be closed on those days.

Colonias dates

There are lessons as usual for each year group outside of these dates.

Secondary end-of-year party: any parent volunteers?
Friday 21st June 8.00 – 10.30

There have been requests from secondary pupils and families to hold an end-of-year party / prom in the garden, as in previous years.
But we need a group of secondary families to take charge of this project for it to go ahead!
Families would organize it and supervise the evening.
You would: prepare a dish to share, decorate the garden, supervise the party (at least two parents at a time), play the music through the sound system, and clear away afterwards.
If you can volunteer, please contact your class carer soon and the party can go ahead!

The building next door
Work begins in June

We thank Delfí and Silvia, the parents who are leading the campaign to complete construction on the semi-derelict building next door. Last week, the Eco de Sitges mentioned our campaign. Work is predicted to start on the building next month.

Have a lovely week, everyone,
Audrey
