As parents know, we hold After School Activities on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays as part of our CCA program. As these are not actually held ‘after’ school, we have from 19th February been referring to these as School Activities.
Reflecting back over the second block of School Activities, and the variety of different experiences we have been able to offer the pupils, was very pleasing. Some of the many notable activities I witnessed were the pupils from Ms. Claire Zhang’s ‘Introduction to Chinese Tea’ sharing the tea they made in the traditional style, seeing the number of girls involved in football on Tuesdays with Ms. Donkin and the pupils building chairs out of cardboard in Mr. Bane’s Young Engineers group. One of the most pleasing activities that happened in Block 2 was the pupils organising a charity event at a local community centre. This highlighted so many of our values, with our pupils taking the lead role in organising the event.
In order to keep improving what we offer as a school, Mr. Paul Rogers, several staff and I had a meeting with parents at the end of last term. As a result, we have adapted our ongoing CCA Action Plan and as part of this, we would like to invite parents to attend a block 3 ‘School Activities Session’ this Friday at 3.30pm in the school gymnasium. This will be an opportunity for parents to talk to teachers who are taking these activities face to face. (We will be sharing this Action Plan with those staff who attended the meeting in due course.)
Date: Friday, 22nd February
Time: 3.30pm – 4.45pm
Place: School gymnasium
