Boys for 11+
We have been thrilled by the positive responses and feedback from existing and prospective parents and are already looking forward to preparing our first cohort of boys for the 11+.  
Supporting our local school community
Recently Miss Grunewald has been in great demand acting as a guest adjudicator. Today she is judging the poetry at North Bridge House School and next Friday she has been invited to Wetherby Prep Poetry Competition. 
Summer Term School Clubs
The children have all been enjoying the extra-curricular clubs on Wednesday afternoons. The Junior Forms (2 & 3) have been exploring the many types of local flora and wildlife that Hyde Park has to offer in their Habitat Studies with Mr Westerman and Miss Arthur. Needless to say, our Junior Art Club run by Miss Pack and Miss Weston, has been a huge hit. The Senior Forms (4, 5 & 6) have been energetically playing Touch Rugby with Miss Steel, Miss Hayward and Miss Pluskowska or employing their creative skills in Jewellery Making with Miss Grunewald and Mrs Walsh.
After School Football Clubs
The Friday Junior Club is full to overflowing and looks to be a great success. A trickle of girls into the Senior Club on Thursday means that Mr Taiwo will be happy to welcome a few more participants – girls should not miss the opportunity to join the biggest women’s team sport in England!
Summer Concert Music Auditions on 23 May (F2-6) & 24 May (F1)
The auditions will be held on Tuesday, 23 May for Forms Two to Six and Form One’s auditions will be on Wednesday, 24 May (as they are out on a school trip on Tuesday). 
Mrs Hopkins will speak to each form group about signing up and the children must remember to bring their music and their instrument (if required) to the audition on Tuesday (23rd).  Any child who studies an instrument, whether in or out of school, is most welcome to audition.
NSPCC Fund Raising
Thank you for the marvellous contributions received on behalf of the NSPCC which totalled over £900.  This is especially generous of parents when it followed on from the recent Readathon donations.  Incredible support!
Summer Uniform
Just a reminder that we are in May and all children should be in summer uniform.
Miss Mayer’s Marathon
Congratulations to Miss Mayer who completed the London Marathon on Sunday, 23 April, a course of over 42 kilometres/26 miles to raise money for Cancer Research. We are proud to say that Miss Mayer is one of several CHS teaching staff who have competed in marathon runs over the last few years to raise money for charity. A very big thank you from Miss Mayer to the CHS children and staff who turned out to support her!
Best wishes.
The CHS Team
