Peter Pan Production – Sixth Form Students
I would like to offer a massive congratulations to the following sixth form students for their involvement with the Peter Pan production last week:

• Georgina King, who wrote the whole script with dialogue and played the role of Wendy Darling to perfection
• Josh Tyrell, who took the role of Director for the whole performance
• Beth Abery, who took the role of Assistant Director for the whole performance
• Tom Fobbester, who took the role of Back Stage Manager
• Rosie Owen, who took the role of Set Designer and also supported Tom back stage
• Kyle Johnson, who took the role of technician managing the sound system throughout the performance

They raised a total of £411.67 which brought the total raised so far for Great Ormond Street to £10,000.

I am so proud of these students for their outstanding accomplishments, total commitment and sheer hard-work in bringing this production to the school stage.

Year 7 Meditation Exercise
Over the next couple of weeks Year 7 students will be taking part in a meditation exercise. This is part of the RPL module on Buddhist beliefs and practices. The aim is to give students an experience of this Buddhist practice and as a general relaxation technique. We hope the students enjoy the experience!

Health and Social Care and Child Development
In Health and Social Care and Child Development for Years 9 – 11 we are constantly working on assessment work. Each piece of work completed will count towards the final grade. If your son/daughter mentions that they are completing assessed work for either of these two subjects then please be aware that the work is extremely important. Work is completed in lesson time and also at home.

In Child Development Year 10 students are working on unit RO20- understanding the development of the child and the Year 9 students are working on unit RO19 -the equipment and nutritional needs of children from birth to 5 years.

In Health and Social Care Year 10 students are working on component 1- ‘human development’ and Year 9 students are working on unit RO25 – ‘understanding human development.’

Family Fun Day in memory of Elliot Peters
We are holding a family fun day in memory of Elliot on Saturday 7th July from 12 noon to 5pm. Admission will be £1.00 per person and all proceeds from the day will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

There will be various stalls including, tombola, face painting, crafts, candy floss, ice cream, food and drink, a cake stall, inflatables etc. A selection of classic cars will also be on display including a Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and a Mustang. There will be various activities to take part in such as, Wellie Wanging, target golf, zorb football and not forgetting the “sponge a teacher” stall (volunteers needed!!).

There will be entertainment in the arena throughout the afternoon along with a raffle with some amazing prizes ranging from West End theatre tickets to an MOT at a local garage.

We would be most grateful for any help and support that you feel able to give. Maybe bake a cake for the cake stall or provide a bottle for the tombola stall? We are also looking to borrow a gazebo for the day, so if you can help, please let us know.

Please come along to support us and have a fun day.

Bottle Donations for Tombola Stall – Family Fun Day, 7th July
We will be running a tombola stall at our Family Fun Day and would be grateful for donations of any bottles. Bottles can be dropped off at Student or Main Reception but if they contain alcohol we can only accept them from an adult as students are not allowed to bring alcohol into school. Thank you for your continued support.
