Fair Play

20th May 2022

When the rules aren’t applied consistently or when people behave in such a way that leaves me feeling unjustly treated, I get annoyed. I see the same in our children in the playground and around school. Treating people fairly has always been important to me. I do my very best to apply this in all…

Why Do We Take Our Children Skiing?

12th May 2022

I am an African. Born and bred in the mining heartland of South Africa. In the first 30 years of my life I never even saw snow, let alone considered skiing. So how did I go from that, to being passionate about taking children skiing?  In March of this year, 30 children from Edenhurst and…

Reception’s Trip to Amerton farm Reception had a wonderful day out at Amerton Farm. When we arrived we were all given a bottle of milk to feed the baby lambs with…they were all very strong and thirsty! After that we fed the chickens and the goats on our walk around the farm. Cody told us…

The Power of a Preparatory

4th March 2022

This year has been one of the most successful for Edenhurst in terms of Scholarships received and 11+ Grammar school places offered. The latter is very significant as we are very far outside of the catchment area of Haberdashers’ Adams’ Grammar School and Newport Grammar and this means that the bar is exceptionally high. Children…

Christmas Message 2021

16th December 2021

Christmas message 2021 You may or may not remember that last year I wrote to Santa for the first time in 45 years. Can you imagine my delight when he granted my Christmas wish for an effective and safe vaccine before Easter, allowing us to have a ‘normal’ Summer term? In fact, Santa was so…

A Busy But Fun Week

10th December 2021

Beauty and the Beast For our annual whole school theatre trip, we watched Beauty and the Beast at the New Vic. Except this year it felt extra special as we didn’t get to go last year. The journey there was loud as the children’s excitement filled the bus. Once we arrived, their faces were gleaming…

How Is Your Mental Health?

3rd December 2021

How are you really? How is your mental health? More importantly, how do you know?  This is not a blog based on any kind of science, which as a Science teacher is a bit strange. This is based purely on my own experience. If you ask Google which are the most stressful jobs in the…
