This week the children have been undertaking different activities in preparation for our celebration of Persian New Year which will take place on Monday. This is the first time that we have marked this event at John Colet and it has provided a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn about another culture. Each class has been busy making items which will be placed on a special table which will be on display outside the library. The different items placed on the table are all symbolic and represent good intentions for the coming year. Each item starts with an S.

A big thank you to all the parents who have helped to support this event. It will be an enriching experience for all the children.

This week I would like to continue with the theme of excellence. During the week, the comment was made by one of our teachers, “If you set the bar high, the children will rise to it.” This was certainly the case in our Infants Assembly this morning. Two of our Upper 1st children presented an experiment for Science Week. The confidence with which the children presented themselves, and the clarity and precision of their explanation were exceptional. All the children and teachers present were understandably enthralled.
