News from the Junior School - Week 7
A Superb Parents' Day
Last Friday, the Junior School held its Open Day giving parents the opportunity to come and visit the school and see what the children have been learning this year. It was a superb day which started with an exciting Sports Day in the morning, followed by a delicious fish and chips lunch. History was made with the terrific Year Six outdoor performance of Macbeth at Round Square, before an opportunity to tour the Junior School. Parents and children then enjoyed some drinks in the glorious sunshine before the day was concluded with the fabulous Summer Concert featuring both Senior and Junior School talented children. What an excellent day!
Exam Season Underway!
The Junior School exam season is officially underway. The children have already had two full days of exams and have another half day to go on Monday. We are sure you will join us in wishing them the very best and hoping they flourish, achieving the results of wqhich we all know they are capable.
Former Pupil to Row Across the Atlantic
Michael Prendergast (OG and son of Junior School staff members Peter and Amanda) set off in the Great Pacific Race recently which involves rowing across the Pacific from California to Hawaii (approximately 2500 miles) as part of a team of four. Michael will be undertaking this challenge in aid of charity and has set himself the goal of raising £40,000 for Down’s Syndrome Scotland having been inspired by his 16 year old brother Andrew who has Down’s Syndrome. This is an amazing challenge for a fantastic cause and we would like to wish him all the very best in his endeavour. If you would like to donate, please see the link to Michael’s Just Giving page below and the article about his challenge. Very best of luck, Michael!
