Dear Parents

The headline news today is that all of Year 8 have passed their Common Entrance Examinations.  Congratulations Year 8 - a great achievement!

The weather has not been kind to us this week.  Yesterday evening the leavers’ rounders and cricket were played through the constant rain but it in no way dampened the spirits of the children, parents or staff!  A great evening was had by all!  Thank you to Mr Hatcher and Mrs Burnett for organising the matches, for umpiring and for the barbeque.

The rain did hold off for Pre-Prep Sports on Wednesday morning.  The children were so enthusiastic and had a wonderful time.  It was lovely that they were all proud to take part, no matter where they were placed.  Thank you to Mrs Burnett for organising and to the PE staff and Year 8 children for running the morning so well.

Sports Day for Years 3 to 8 will now take place on Wednesday 3rd July.

This morning’s assembly was a celebration of the first Holy Communions of Alfred, Chloe and Max. Dressed in their smart Holy Communion clothes, they told us about the preparation classes they attended, about the special day itself and their celebrations with family and friends.  They all spoke very well and everyone in the chapel congratulated them on this milestone in their faith journey.  

This evening we look forward to the Year 8 performance of their ‘Play in a Day’ and a celebration with their parents of their Common Entrance success.

Please do take a look at the BHCC silent auction lots and raffle prizes in Great Roke Reception. Make a bid and buy some tickets!

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Proms on Sunday.

Kind regards,

    From the Chaplaincy

    Now when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you. John 20:19

    This is the beginning of the story of Pentecost, when the risen Jesus appeared among the disciples and the holy spirit descended upon them.  Jesus’ greeting, ‘Peace be with you’ is one we repeat as part of Communion.  In our troubled world they are words to remember and live by.

    On this drizzly mid-June morning, the Bacon Buttie stall raised a respectable £210.85, selling out of croissant and pain au chocolat. We will order a few more for next week and our apologies to those Pre-Prep children who missed out. Thank you all you lovely fundraisers and stall helpers.
