We currently have spaces available for pupils to have Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute and Singing lessons.
All children should have a water bottle, suncream and a sun hat in their games bags. Please make sure these are named.
With so much in the news over the holidays about Facebook and their use of data, our Head of e-Safety Tom Layton has some guidance for anyone thinking of deleting social media accounts:
“When you stop using a social networking profile or website, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Snap Chat or something else, it’s a good idea to deactivate or delete your account. This will mean that your content is no longer live and should not be searchable online. It will also remove the risk of these accounts being used by others or hacked without you knowing. Follow the UK Safer Internet Centre link below for more guidance on how to deactivate any accounts you no longer use or want Deleting Social Media accounts.”
A wonderful start to term has meant that the children have been able to enjoy the outdoors and cricket for all! Even the Headmaster was able to join the Year 3 children build a magnificent den …
The Ski Trip to St. Johann in Tirol, Austria was a great success and there were 48 children from Years 5 to 8 who spent the week improving their skiing, bowling, swimming and tubing! Both the ski instructors and the staff in the mountain restaurants commented on how well behaved and polite the Beaudesert children were. Thank you to both the children and the staff who made the trip such fun.
Please do not forget to bring in your old batteries next week so that we can play our part in the Big Battery Hunt national recycling challenge! The plan is to boost the number of batteries recycled in the UK and engage children with the importance of using resources wisely. The national campaign target is to recycle four million batteries. With over 500,000 school children already involved across the UK, things look promising.
The boarders have returned full of beans and the weather has meant we have been outside as much as possible.
On Wednesday the Year 8s managed to do work before supper and then enjoyed the lovely evening in the grounds and enjoying the evening sun.
The outdoor pool was opened and the boarders were the first to swim! They really enjoyed cooling off after spending the afternoon playing cricket. In addition, some chose to work indoors and others decided beside the pool was the better option!
In addition to the academic clinics that will be offered to all the Year 8 pupils before Common Entrance, we are looking forward to keeping the right balance of rest, work and play for all our boarders over this busy summer term. Please remember to book your child in for the Year 3 boarding taster night with Matron firstname.lastname@example.org as well as making sure you have the Badge camp nights logged in the diary!
