Mr Hibbert’s Christmas Message

18th December 2020

  This year has been like no other. We’ve learnt so much about ourselves and those around us. We’ve laughed. We’ve cried. We’ve clapped. We’ve Zoomed. And we’ve Google Meeted A LOT! And what we’ve learnt is that no one has all the answers. Not even the Prime minister. But as never before we have…

An In School Trip

15th December 2020

A different kind of Nativity

15th December 2020

As we approach the end of such a strange year, it seems even more special that we were able to put on a Nativity at all! With the threat of bubbles being forced to isolate, we made the last minute decision to film a week earlier than planned. Luckily, Prep 3 rose to the challenge! …
