Dear Parents

 

Photographs

 

The weather was on our side finally last Tuesday and we were able to successfully have the whole school and class photographs in the Square.  As this was a far later date than originally planned, Bentleys Photographic have arranged digital ordering to ensure that the photographs are with us before the end of term.

If you would prefer to order directly with Bentley’s office, please contact them on 01206 395888 during normal office hours.

 

Summer Concert

 

Thank you for coming to our Summer Concert on Friday.  We are sure you will all agree that the children’s performances were, once again, remarkable.  We do hope that the later start accommodated more parents in attendance.  The children behaved beautifully throughout the day and thank you once again to Dr Ashworth for putting together such a treat for the ears.

 

Upcoming Events

 

Open Dance for parents tomorrow at the Sylvia Young Theatre – Form 4 to Form 6 at 1.10pm and Form 3 at 1.40pm.

 

Sadly, we have not been able to secure a suitable venue at such late notice for Sports Day that was rained off.  However, the children will have the event during scheduled sports lessons this week.  We will be taking plenty of photographs and will share the results with you of course.

 

We are all excited about the school trips on Friday.  Please do note that the school itself will be closed after departure and before return.  Therefore we will not be able to accommodate latecomers on this occasion.

 

The CHS annual Prize Giving Ceremony will take place at the Carisbrooke Hall on Tuesday, 9 July 9.15am to 10.15am.  You may have noticed the earlier time and date.  This is as a result of taking parents’ preferences into account and Prize Giving will incorporate the Year End Assembly, including speeches from members of staff and input by pupils at the same time.  This is an opportunity to have a glimpse of an assembly that parents do not normally participate in.  We hope in this way every child will be encompassed and feel included in this celebration of the end of the year.  All children return to school with their teachers after this event and Tuesday lessons continue until normal pick up time.

Clubs

 

Attached please find a list of Clubs for the Autumn Term showing availability.  Ms White is poised ready to add your child’s name to those coveted places so please do let us know as a first come first served basis will operate.  Those children who are already included in the various clubs continue on as before with pupils moving into Form Four being placed in the Senior Drama club from next term.

 

We are excited to be introducing a new technology club for our senior pupils.  As a perfect starter course, Junior Coder allows pupils to delve into exciting projects while gaining insight and experience into many aspects of computer coding – including the likes of robotics, mobile apps, animation, graphic design, and video games – taking students from the basics in the field to the point where they can design and build their own ideas.

 

We are also delighted to be offering a new Mandarin Club and attach information here:
