Claires Court Bulletin



PARKING - Please take every care when parking on school grounds. We have had several people parking on grass and getting stuck. Please do not park anywhere other than in a marked bay in the car park on the tarmac. Thank you for your cooperation.


Our first full week back has seen boys not only working well in the classroom, but success on the football field and the start of the on-going Delancey Chess Tournament, which takes place during break times over the coming weeks. The full activity programme is underway and Year 2 managed to burn Pudding Lane, starting the Great Fire of London, but to the relief of all, also managed to put the fire out.

Looking forward, on Thursday evening this week there is a Secondary School information meeting, aimed mainly at parents of boys in Year 5, though other parents are very welcome to attend.

On a different note, the annual Burns Night is being held in our Sports Hall next Saturday - a terrific evening and there are still some tickets available.

Our 'Rabbits' this week are awarded to Daniel Gribben (5G) and Henry Lewington (3Y). Daniel has been extremely helpful, without prompting, in several situations this week, helping both teachers and fellow pupils. Henry gave up an hour of his time this week to help, again offering his time without being asked. Thank you and well done Daniel and Henry.
