The School has been a hive of activity this week with preparations underway in all age groups for Founders’ Day celebrations and we look forward with great anticipation to the climax of the day, the talent show and house songs this afternoon. It has been wonderful seeing every single pupil involved in the creativity and teamwork of this event, which brings together pupils and staff from the four houses in a sense of celebration, entertainment and gentle competition. I do congratulate Mr Cook and our four house leaders, Mrs Heavey, Mr Cabey, Mrs Driscoll and Mr Lewis for all their hard work in ensuring the day remains one of the highlights of the year.
The last two weeks of term have been incredibly busy and incredibly enjoyable. The stunning Year 4 production of ‘Jill and Fred’s Historical Adventure’ will last long in the memory for the quality of performance from all the children and the history they learned along the way, while the Spring Music Concert was a delight, featuring a wonderful range of group and individual talent. Easter assemblies followed, with the Year 5 drama group skilfully acting out the Easter story, while prize-giving assemblies have rewarded the children for their efforts and progress. Teachers are constantly talking about the children’s fantastic attitude and achievements in class and in extra-curricular pursuits; we are extremely proud of their continuing development.
I am pleased to inform you that Miss Cordero, our Spanish teacher will return to school after the Easter break after a prolonged period of absence. Mrs Schembri has done a wonderful job this term and I am very grateful for the way she has continued to motivate the children so beautifully. It will be a pleasure to hear Miss Cordero’s ‘Hola chicas y chicos’ first thing in the morning!
I look forward to the children continuing to flourish next term and, in the meantime, I wish you all a very happy Easter break.
