I do hope that everyone had a most enjoyable and relaxing break, without too many delays and problems caused by the volcanic eruption. It has been lovely welcoming the boys back to school so full of energy and enthusiasm for the term ahead.
Due to the travel disruptions, Mr Chambers is stuck in Egypt and Miss Liz in Oman. We hope they will be back soon!
We warmly welcome Katie Miller and Rob Stewart to the Pre-Prep staff. Rob will be Form Teacher for 2C and Katie will be a Teaching Assistant across the school. Miss Kim is settling into her new home in Scotland but retains a keen interest in the progress of those boys she has taught – we will keep in touch.
You will see from the Summer Term Calendar that we have a stimulating and busy few weeks ahead of us. Please do check the dates carefully – particularly important ones to note are:
26th – 28th April Form Three Trip to Hilltop, Norfolk
3rd May Bank Holiday – school closed
14th June Exam Morning (Forms One, Two and Three)
24th June Parents’ Evening (no clubs)
1st July Form Three Play
5th July Sports Day (Battersea Millenium Stadium at 10.00 am, no afternoon school – more details to follow closer to the day)
You will also find a copy of the calendar and other useful information, such as this term’s lunch menus, on the school website www.eatonhouseschools.com.
Boys may wear white, short sleeved shirts and green ankle socks, to school this term (except on 17th May when we have class photographs). They should also have their sun caps at school to wear for Games. Kindergarten and new boys will be provided with these at the start of term, so please make sure that the sun cap is clearly named.
Please would you apply sun screen to your son, on very sunny days, before he comes to school. We will apply a top up on Games afternoons. Please inform your son’s form teacher if your son is allergic to sun screen or you wish to provide your own.
Should you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch.
With best wishes,
Mrs P T M Cawthorne
