Headmaster’s Roundup 24 November 2016
We have had two fun events during the last week. On Friday many children came in wearing spots to raise money for Children in Need. Then on Tuesday the children enjoyed wearing their own clothes and we thank you all for the donations of bottles and sweets for the FOSMA Christmas Fair this coming Saturday. I am sure that you are all looking forward to it. It will run from 2pm, until 4.30pm, in our Sports Hall.
On Wednesday morning 5F led our Assembly. The children created their own Dragon’s Den theme, bringing out the best and worst ideas regarding helping or hindering team work. We were grateful to four Sixth Formers from RGS who came along as our Dragons.
I was absolutely delighted with the performance of eighteen of our children at the Informal Concert after school on Tuesday. The performers ranged from Year 2 to Year 6, and all were so impressive and confident. It was a most enjoyable event. Thanks go to Mr Hare, Mrs Whitehead and the RGS music department for allowing us to use the fabulous facilities there. Of course the biggest thank you goes to the children for working so hard on their pieces, and for making us smile.
With the weather having turned colder and wetter could I remind you all to check that your children have their names in coats, gloves, scarves and hats etc. These are the items which are most readily lost and are almost impossible to reunite with their owners if they are not named so please do take a few minutes to check. Also do routinely check the names of your children’s kit which comes home for washing.
This week there was an editorial in the Surrey Mirror, advertising the fact that due to a bulge year, we are recruiting into Year 3 from September 2017. There are still spaces on our assessment day in January. If you know families who might be interested in sending their child to RSM, do let them know.
Finally—what an amazing array of achievements in The Achievement Book this week! Well done everyone.
