French Day, Sports Day, MOSI visit, JESC, BMX fun, Summer Banquet and Graduation

What a lot of events to fit into a short space of time. This half term has been jam-packed with fun and work in equal measure.

The French Day was really encouraging, with students practising their French and having a go. There were special lessons and French stories, a midday meal together of croque monsieur and tartes aux fruits, and other enjoyment. The students have made great progress in ability and confidence in one year.

For Sports Day we joined with Covenant Christian School and much hilarity ensued. There was great camaraderie and some excellent competition.

The Lower School visited the Museum of Science and Industry and their eyes and their minds were alight with interest.

The Junior School were aided to prepare some platform and music events for Junior Student Convention (JESC) which we travelled over to Dewsbury in Yorkshire to compete against and share with Branch School. The performances were really moving and successful.

A great end of term treat was had at the velodrome when the Upper School went BMXing and moguls and ramps and various things that this typist didn’t quite understand were a great delight to the students who participated.

Summer Banquet and Graduation have been lovely. As usual we had some wonderful guests, friends of the school and family and one family were able to travel from Canada! The day was very blessed. The worship was led by 2 of the Seniors and one of the Junior students and very well done. The food was delicious and beautiful in great abundance – a real banquet. The performances were excellent. It was superlative. We had a few graduations also. There was a Preschool class, ABCs, Year 8 and ICCE General Certificate graduation. We fellowshipped together, worshipped together, ate and drank together and laughed and cried together (yes, at least one of the performances was that good). A great way to finish the school year.
