Walthamstow School for Girls

JA slide show

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have certainly had some interesting spring weather-snow and hail on Tuesday and wonderful sunshine towards the end of the week, meanwhile other parts of the world are recording their highest temperatures ever for the time of year. Another reminder of the impact of climate change.

Next week, the Chair of Governors and I will be representing the school at the SSAT Achievement Award Ceremony in central London. This will be the fourth successive year in which WSFG has qualified for an award. I shall update you on the outcome in the next Greensheet.

The Leadership assemblies this week, led by Ms Pratt, have explored interesting facts about Shakespeare, who died 400 years ago this month. The girls were entertained by a film of Hamlet’s ‘to be or not to be’ speech in Klingon!

Also on Monday all of Year 8 and 9 were entertained by the ‘Office Girls’ who managed to convey a strong message about diversity, British values and radicalisation as part of their performance. They are currently touring around schools in the area.

Finally, the new cohort of Year 10 Duke of Edinburgh participants spent Friday preparing for their first expedition under the guidance of Mr Mace. It was clear that some had more previous experience of camping than others! Let us hope that the weather remains bright and sunny for them.

Have an excellent Bank Holiday weekend,

Best wishes

Meryl Davies
