Dear CHS Parents

We hope this email finds you all well.  We have had a wonderful week with tours, matches and plethora of gold stars and certificates awarded.

Congratulations to Hannah Z and Katherine who both received certificates during assembly.  Hannah was awarded a certificate for an impressive thousand day streak on Doodle Maths and Katherine achieved her silver chess certificate.

KPS Tour 

Mrs Hampton has received praise from her colleagues at Kensington Park School from the group tour on Wednesday.  Ms Lovett, Head of Admissions said, ‘I can honestly say it was probably my favourite open evening!  The children were absolutely lovely and are a credit to their parents and indeed, CHS.  I hope to see many of them come through and join us in the coming years.’  

Football Match

Our senior CHS team acquitted themselves superbly on Thursday morning in a fixture against Halcyon Senior School. The end result was 3 – 0 to the opposition. However, the final score was never important in this match with the focus firmly on the performance and if our young champions could rise to the challenge playing against older students which they surely did.

Mr Taiwo was proud of his football team.

 

Food bank for Marylebone Women’s Refuge

We were happily overwhelmed this week with the volume of dried food and toiletries donated towards this worthwhile local charity.  Ms Arthur and Ms Stock have arranged delivery this afternoon to the charity site with many thanks to you all.

 

Daunt Books

The Daunt Book sale will take place on Monday 22 November from 8.30am in the dining room.  Bearing in mind social distancing, parent’s entrance will be via the outdoor stairs directly into the basement.  Parents visiting the fair are kindly asked to wear a face covering whilst in the building.  During the day the children will be escorted in their forms to the book fair.  Please bear in mind that the average cost of a book will be roughly £8, and whilst the children should bring in cash, there will card payment facilities if you wish to pay by card.

 

Roman Day for Form Three

We are looking forward to welcoming our Form Three Romans on Monday 22 November.  This event is becoming a tradition in the Autumn Term as the children sum up their history topic.

Coffee morning with Mrs Hampton

Mrs Hampton will be hosting the last coffee morning of 2021 on Thursday, November 25th at 10am.  She will be joined by Mrs Antolini Lemos, our English as an Additional Language support, to discuss the hurdles that our young multi lingual speakers face and strategies to support them.

Christmas lights 

We are delighted that once again, our Senior Choir has been invited to sing for the community.   They will be situated underneath the ‘Love, Actually’ tree on Kendal Street from 4.30pm.  We welcome pupils and parents to join in this festive event.  Invitation is at the bottom of this email.

Christmas Concert DVD and USB order

This year’s Christmas Concert is on the last day of term, 10 December, at 11am at St Johns Church, Hyde Park.  We are so pleased that our parents and guests will be able to enjoy this event with us once again.  Due to continued Covid risk management,  we will ask parents to remain in their seats during the whole performance and not to leave their place to photograph or film the event. Mrs Hampton has organised for a professional videographer from 2020 TV to record the performance.
