Easter Egg Collection

This term, Year 11 have been organising a collection of Easter Eggs for children in the East Anglian Children’s Hospice. As a tutor group, they collected 18 Easter Eggs out of the school’s total which reached over 60. Well done to Year 11 and thank you to everyone in the school who donated an egg. They will be delivered to the hospice this week.

Easter eggs for EACH

Easter is nearly here and I am helping to collect Easter eggs for children at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice. If you would like to help me, please bring an Easter egg to Reception by Friday March 15th and I will make sure it gets to a child at the hospice. If you prefer, you could donate £1 instead and I will use this money to buy an egg on your behalf. Let’s put a smile on the face of a child less fortunate than us at this special time of year. Thank you.

Rosamaria, Year 11

Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

Thank you to everyone who baked or bought a cake for our coffee afternoon in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We had lots of delicious cakes and biscuits to tempt pupils, parents and staff. Year 12 and 13 did a wonderful job of organising the event and serving the drinks and cakes. With your generous donations, we raised £270. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.

All Go for our GoGo Hare!

In the last week of term, senior girls were enthusiastically interpreting Laura S’s winning design for our GoGo Hare, painting our very own leaping leveret ready to take its place amongst the many which will be on display around the city over the summer. It’s looking good already – watch this space for the finished version at the beginning of term!

You can also find out more about the GoGo Hares project here.

Celtic Winner for our GoGo Hare

A wonderful array of designs was submitted for our GoGO leveret, which has been sitting patiently in the main entrance hall waiting to be painted! Voting times were extended to take into account the snow days last week, and we can now announce that the overall winning design was submitted by Laura S in Year 11. Depicting Norse symbols, with a dramatic tree of life and sun, moon and stars, it will be both challenging and fun to paint onto the hare – and to stunning effect, we are sure! Our leveret will join many others from schools across the area in the trail around the city this summer.

Painting has started, so watch the blog for pictures of its progress.

The runners up were:
Years 10-13 Darci S-M
Years 7-9 Liberty-Moon H
Years 4-6 Eve S
Nursery-Year 3 Harry T (Reception)
