Good afternoon CHS Parents

We hope this email finds you all well.

Thank you to all of our parents and teachers who all met virtually for the ‘Meet the Teacher’ sessions this week.

The first of our competitions has started with Mrs Desborough sending art work through to the Independent School’s Art Competition.  All together, twenty two pieces of artwork were sent, from architectural structure, Klee collaging and William Morris tiles, to the more abstract Mondrian trees and Fauve landscapes.

The Form Six pupils have been involved in the first Maths contest of the school year.  The children have had the privilege of competing in the Westminster Schools’ Sumdog contest which pits them against a variety of other local classes.

The tournament lasts for seven days, so we are just beginning the event, yet early indications are positive. Oscar P is top of the leader board ahead of Adiel and Amara. During the next week, the pupils will take part in a series of online Maths games to see which class and which pupil comes out as the top dog.  The games test all areas of Maths in a fun and interactive way and the pupils love it.

Last Friday, £234 was raised for the RSPCA which is the pupils chosen charity for the year. This was achieved through a second- hand uniform stall which was set up and run by five parents in Hyde Park.  Enormous thanks to the parents that ran thus successful afternoon.

Just a quick reminder that the children should be in winter uniform from the start of October which should include their blazers or duffle coats and the appropriate headwear.  Please just check that all items are clearly named.

We would like to remind parents that in order to ensure a calm and organised start to the day, children should arrive at school between 8.30 and 8.45 and should be collected promptly at the end of day to avoid children becoming anxious.

Regulations mean that we must keep an accurate register including lateness.

 

With best wishes,
