Claires Court Bulletin



In a busy week, boys in years 3 and 4 have enjoyed Electric City Lego this morning, Reception had a visit from a vet, it was World Book Day yesterday, the U9 Rugby and Football teams have enjoyed success in tournaments last Sunday and Saturday, Jake Ward, Ben Tapner-Evans and Henry Bennett represented London West in the ISA National Cross Country Championships helping London West win the event. In the National Prep SchoolsTournament last Sunday our U9 rugby team played superbly, reaching the quarter-finals and in the process lost to the eventual winners by only a single try.

Also this week some classes have been taking part in our sponsored events for our '3 for 3' charity appeal and already we have raised over £800. Well done and thank you to all our boys and families for your support.

A further well done and thank you is extended to so many of our boys who show their thoughtful and caring nature on a daily basis. Particular thanks this week go to two of our younger pupils, Spike Stalham, RY and Toby Giles, 2Y who have been particularly helpful and caring towards their fellow pupils and have been awarded the Rabbits for this week. Well done Spike and Toby.
