Should old acquaintance be forgot in Year 1?

This week Year 1 are learning about new year: what it means and the traditions surrounding it. Mrs Bird is teaching them “Auld Lang Syne” – and what better place to practise than in front of a glowing log fire in our main hall? Hooray for HOHS and hooray for 2018!

Oh yes it is the Sixth Form panto!

On the last day of term we were treated to the annual Sixth Form panto, this year a seasonal take (loosely!) on Alice in Wonderland, with Charlie in the title role narrowly avoiding having her head cut off. As tradition dictates, the panto is written, performed and directed by our Year 12 and 13 girls and also features a motley crew of staff. The panto always entertains, and this year’s offering was no exception, with an appropriate amount of booing and cheering required from the appreciative audience of pupils and staff from Years 3 and upwards. It would be unfair to single out any individuals for praise, but it must be said that Miss Mann and Mrs Heppell offered particularly charismatic performances as Brussels sprouts.

And the winners were…

The last day of term saw our annual, fiercely-contested House Shout singing competition, with the three houses – with pupils from Years 3-13 participating – each choosing a Christmas song to perform to a discerning panel of judges (Mr Peace, Mr Crump and Mrs Collin) and enthusiastic audience of pupils and staff.

This year Austen narrowly triumphed with their spirited rendition of I Wish it Could be Christmas Every Day,  complete with enthusiastically executed choreography.  Other awards of the afternoon went to Saffron (Year 7) for winning the Best Christmas Jumper competition, Year 6 for best decorated Prep classroom and Year 9 for best decorated Senior classroom. 

The House Shout followed hot on the heels of the traditional Sixth Form Panto, about which more will be related here later (oh yes it will!).

Mr Crump presents Austen’s Sixth Formers Paisley and Isabel with the House Shout prize.

Austen’s rendition of I wish it Could be Christmas Every Day had the wining formula!
