Dear CHS Parents

We hope this email finds you all well.

We had a brilliant first football match of the season on Thursday with the Senior Football  team taking on Prince’s Garden Prep School.  The match was evenly fought with a draw of two-all, with man of the match voted as Hugo from Form Five, who was outstanding on the field and spectacular in goal.

Congratulations to Mr Taiwo for running the London Marathon and successfully completing this amazing feat!

We participated in a fantastic Art competition, organised by Sister London, as part of Mental Health and Wellbeing Awareness Day, which was judged this afternoon.  The judges were very impressed with the amazing talent and thoughtful slogans that the children came up with.  Class winner’s work will be exhibited locally in Connaught Village and our overall winner, Hannah from Form Five, will be able to see her winning artwork transformed into a tote bag that will be available for sale, with all proceeds going to a local charity.  Details of the exhibition will be shared nearer the time.

Congratulations to:

  • Junior One – Clara
  • Form One – Alexander
  • Form Two – Andreas
  • Form Three – Charlie
  • Form Four – Meera
  • Form Five – Hannah M
  • Form Six – Katherine

The above artwork will be exhibited at Mrs Hampton’s virtual coffee morning and on the CHS website.

Further congratulations to former Form Six pupils who received certificates form the Royal Park’s ‘Urban Tree Festival 2021 School Challenge’.  These certificates were for ‘Outstanding submissions ‘ where the children created informative posters describing the elder tree.

Form One will be taking a trip to the Science Museum on Wednesday 13th October, followed by a ‘Space’ themed fancy dress up day on Thursday 14 October.  This has always been a wonderful opportunity for the children to get creative and have fun amongst a galactic like classroom.

Mrs Hampton is hoping to see some friendly faces at our virtual coffee morning on Thursday, 14th October at 10am, where the focus will be on Mental Health and Wellbeing.  Invitation and link will be sent out on Monday.

The teachers look forward to seeing you all next week for Parent’s  Meetings.
