Thought of the week ‘We can accomplish more together than we would dream possible
working by ourselves’ Senora Roy, Poet.
Class Eight Projects
Each year the Class 8 students
take on independent projects to
present their individual interests
and inspirations to the school
community as the culmination of
their Lower School educational
The idea is that the project
requires the students to find a
mentor, research the topic,
complete the work and share this
experience with an
audience. They spend many
hours, above and beyond their
regular academic school work,
developing their projects.
Many Congratulations to Class 8
on completing a brilliant set of
Project presentations! There was
a wide range of topics and
everyone who attended learned
a lot!
Many thanks to Class 8 teacher,
Ed Hirst and to all the parents
who supported the pupils in
completing their projects.
Wishing you all a relaxing and
enjoyable Easter Holidays.
