On Friday 14th June, pupils and staff came to school wearing green to mark the second anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy. We wrote prayers which we displayed on a prayer tree, and had a cake sale after school to raise money for Save the CHildren. Thank you to everyone who donated cakes or bought them!
On Tuesday 19th March, the choir had a fantastic experience of singing alongside 4000 students from the south-east of the UK. They spent a few months preparing the songs and actions and it was incredible hearing all the voices singing as one.
The event told the story of Moses and the exodus out of Egypt through music by the All Souls Orchestra as well as dance and acting. All the students thoroughly enjoyed it and the adults even got a tad teary during Amazing Grace!
We had a great time last week raising money for Comic Relief! The cake sale was a great success – thank you to everyone who donated or bought cakes. We have some very talented bakers in school! The children loved taking part in the danceathon – it was great fun! We raised over £300, so thank you all very much for your generosity.
On Friday 25th January, some of the Faith Council attended a special thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, organised by the LDBS. The service was attended by schools from the Diocese of London, who came together to give thanks for the work that schools do. We were really excited to hear from Bishop Sarah, the Bishop of London, who answered some of the children’s questions. It was a wonderful afternoon.
On Sunday 9th December, the choir performed at St Mary’s Church Christingle service. They did a fantastic job and represented the school beautifully. Well done to all of you, and also to Mr Watkins for his hard work.
On Friday 30th November, the winners of the Winter Windows competition attended a celebration of their work in Leicester Square. They received certificates and got to meet a very special guest! Go and have a look at their pictures which are being displayed in Leicester Square – they are really impressive! Here is a preview:
