Year 6 Staging of Under Milk Wood

Today, for the first time in over a year, we welcomed parents back into the school to bid a heartfelt farewell to Year 6.

The scholars’ staging of Under Milk Wood was superlative. This particular cohorts’ sense of wonder, juxtaposed with an assiduous learning ethic is impressive and the proportion of children excelling beyond the norm remarkable.

Far more important, is their benign and generous spirit. There was a poignant moment, earlier in the week, when the full magnitude of imminent departure became too overwhelming for some. We will miss them greatly.

I’d like to take this opportunity to single out colleagues for praise who have championed and cajoled this class over the last eight years. In particular, Deputy Head Ms Lindsay Johnson, Ms Emma Jones, who taught them in the Nursery, Ms Natasha Peurois and Ms Verity Handyside, and Mr Jason Dass, who has been their class teacher in this important transition year.
