I thoroughly enjoyed listening to our choir sing the Fauré Requiem at All Saints Church alongside the All Saints Choir last Saturday and we were treated to another performance in Assembly on Thursday morning. It proved one of those many moments when I felt moved by and proud of the achievements of your children. I am sure that I will feel the same this evening after the Year 4 & 5 production of Disney Through the Ages. These performances reflect wonderfully on teachers such as Miss Huber and Mrs Griffiths but also on the very wholehearted support parents at St Christopher’s give to the performing and creative arts.
This has been a week full of sports fixtures too and, at the risk of being invidious, I would like to single out our Senior Netball VII. The girls represented the school with distinction at both the IAPS and the SISNA tournaments.
We have all been looking forward to our celebration of ‘World Book Day’. I hope the day will inspire your children to read even more. Not only will it give them great pleasure but it will support their learning across the range of subjects. At a time when reading is threatened by screen time, whatever we can do to encourage children to read is worth doing.
