Invitation to Join Us on Friday 28th October


iہیلو – Hello

Recently we conducted a short survey and found that we have 54 countries/cultures represented in our school community. This has the potential to hugely enrich our educational experiences at school.

With this in mind we have introduced a ‘Language of the Month’ initiative in the school. The language for the month of October is Urdu.  Currently, we have 15-20 children who have some knowledge of Urdu.

October Language of the Month

This month our language of the month is Urdu. Urdu is mainly spoken in Pakistan, but it is also spoken and understood in parts of India, Bangladesh, Nepal and the Middle East. There are an estimated 100 million speakers of Urdu around the world. Urdu is written and read from right to left; the opposite of English.

April Cross Country

Our April Cross Country Race took place on Wednesday 6th. The weather was much more favourable this time around and suited our athletes much better. The teams performed exceptionally well with many children placed in all of the races. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and everyone is looking forward to the final cross country race in May. Take a look at the video to see our LETS runners in action!

March Cross Country Races

Our second schools cross country race took place on Wednesday March 2nd. The weather conditions were far from ideal with wind, mud and very cold rainshowers! However, there were suberb performances from all classes. The competing children really gave it their all and spirits were high despite the tough conditions. Well done to all competitors. The next race will be after the holidays and trials will be open to everyone.
