It is with pleasure that I can announce Ethan in Year 6 has successfully graded and been awarded his black belt in karate on Saturday 14th July. He has worked tremendously hard all year so it is wonderful to see him achieve his ultimate goal. There is supposed to be a year between gradings so Ethan has managed to grade six months early! Well done Ethan. A massive thanks go to Ethan's coaches, Collin and Danny Rudkin at SEKF for all their hard work and belief in Ethan.
Our current Year 7 pupils have stepped up and shown us what they are made of today as they take on the role of Year 8 Buddy for the first time. They were introduced to their Year 5 buddies this morning and have spent time with them, showing them around the school and completing a QR code challenge. It has been lovely to see them at work, interacting and engaging with the Year 4 pupils who are here today.
Several nervous faces greeted the Year 7 team this morning as they lined up on the playgrounds wondering what the day would hold. After an assembly, pupils were given their new tutor groups and informed of who their new tutor would be. They have spent the morning completing a range of activities and partaking in many different 'getting to know you' games. There are now definitely far less worried looking faces around.
There has been a problem updating the schools blog using mobile technology. This is unfortunate as we understand that as parents and carers you are looking forward to seeing photos and comments from the many activities taking place. We have been working hard to finding a solution to this problem and can only apologise for the delays.
We started the day today at the Louvre where we saw the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and other great works. Then we went to get our pictures at the Eiffel Tower. We have loads of pictures from both events which students will have access to after they have been uploaded from our school tablets. We went for a quick browse at Galleries Lafayette, and finally we had dinner at the Hard Rock Café. We are all tucked in with lights out!
