THE PREPS MAKE THEIR CONCERT DEBUT - Broomwood Hall

VICARAGE & 50NL · WEEK 11 · FRIDAY 9 NOVEMBER 2012

THE PREPS MAKE THEIR CONCERT DEBUT

Performing ‘Sky High, Toe Low’ (above); ‘Goodbye’ (above right); ‘Drum Shaker Song’ (right)

The Preps gave a spectacular debut performance on Thursday and Friday

this week, and entertained their parents and friends with some impressive

musical talents. They had been practising hard earlier in the week and

amazed us all with how quickly they mastered not only the words of all the

songs but also the rhythms using tambourines, drums, maracas and jingle

bells. A huge well done and thank you to all who took part.

Miss Joanna Marlow – Lower School Head of Music

NOTES FROM THE HEAD

I would strongly urge you to avoid leaving children

unattended in your car when dropping off or collecting.

We were informed of an incident last week when a man

tried to enter a car parked in Ramsden Road whilst a child

was left in it. The parent was gone for less than 5 minutes

and thankfully the car was locked but the experience was

extremely upsetting for both the child and parent.

Mrs Sarah Graham – Head of Lower School

CLASS 2 TRIP

The Class 2 children are all off to St Paul’s Cathedral

and The Monument as part of their topic work on ‘The

Great Fire of London’. They will learn all about how the

fi re spread and how it was eventually put out. While in

the cathedral, the children will also explore some of the

features and symbols of churches and cathedrals. Travel

will be by coach; we aim to leave at 9.15 and be back

at school by 3.30. All children need to wear full school

uniform and bring with them a packed lunch (nut-free) and

a water bottle. It promises to be a brilliant day!

patch. Fingers crossed they will continue to grow and we

will savour the fruits of our labours.

SPORTS UPDATE

On Tuesday 6 November our U8 A & B teams took part in

the Wandsworth Prep Schools Football Tournament. Both

the teams won one and lost one match in the pool stages

and so went through to the quarter fi nals. Despite playing

their socks off, neither team were successful in gaining

a place in the semi fi nals. The teams displayed much

improvement in their game and are looking forward to

playing in their next match. Well done, boys!
