As we head into a well-earned break, please ensure that, in the middle of some quality restorative time, winter uniform items are checked for fit and fitness and senior students get into catching up making up study notes, revising their Term 1 work and generally setting themselves up for success in Term 2. We will be going into full Winter uniform from the beginning of Term 2.
In addition to the normal uniform requirements of regulation blazer, skirt and jersey, for girls this means wearing the white long sleeved winter shirt and black tights and for boys a white long sleeved shirt. Boys may continue to wear short trousers in Winter should they wish. If you need reminding of uniform requirements they are inside the Student Planner, page 10 (white pages) and on the website under Home/About/Enrolments/Uniform.
Next week we finish the term with the first of our school wide Arts and Cultural events – House Drama! This will begin at 1.15pm in the gym on Wednesday 12, so if you are able to come along you are very welcome.
This week we had a delightful Easter service, with Reverend Chris Darnell, who spoke to us about Easter being the “best of times, the worst of times.” It is the worst of time because we remember the death of Christ on the Cross, but the best of times when we get to Easter Sunday and the promise of the resurrection and what it means for Christians. And, as Chris rightly pointed out, we also get chocolate! “The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.” Basil Hume.
Wishing all our families an uplifting, restful and peaceful break.
