It is wonderful to see the whole school pulling together and working as one great team. Mr Evans
showed a wonderful clip in assembly to set off the whole event which really summed up the whole
value of teamwork and what kind of citizens that we wish to be. It was an image of people pulling
together to comfort a team who had lost and were really feeling it! So many parents came to me at the

Sports Day Fun
Well done to Anna P who gave an excellent performance singing at a very prestigious
fundraising event last week. It was at the London penthouse of The Air Ambulance,
Ambassador Lord Fink with some 120 VIP’s present. Although Anna was nervous
beforehand (as all good artists are!!) she produced a lovely performance of I Dreamed A
Dream from Les Miserables that had the audience captivated. From the feedback
received we know that she conducted herself perfectly and captivated everyone in the
room, so much so that spontaneous donations of £2,000 were made to the charity and
given to Anna to accept on our behalf after she finished singing. Thank you Anna, for
reflecting the values we hold dear at school!
