Dear Parents and Carers,
This week marks the start of Fairtrade fortnight so this has been the theme of the Leadership whole school assemblies. Over 70% of families already purchase fair trade products, but, with nearly five thousand products to choose from in the UK now (as compared with only coffee, tea and chocolate twenty years ago) there is nothing to stop all families from buying Fairtrade and, by doing so, contributing to ending the poverty experienced by many farmers and their families in Latin America, India and African countries. The main feature of this year’s campaign is the Columbian banana, so do keep a look out for campaign stickers in your local shops.
I would like to congratulate all our wonderful attenders! Our whole school attendance continues to beat our target of 96% overall. Well done to the following classes who have achieved the best attendance in their year group:
9S 97.98% Best in school!
All this week our girls have been competing in inter-form competitions and having great fun, despite the chilly weather. We are grateful to the PE department for organising this and all staff for supporting the event.
Finally, we wish our senior school steel bands every success in the Music For Youth Festival in Camden on Thursday.
