This week at the Foundation Assembly we marked the sixty sixth year since the school was founded. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of the school, which was part of the founding vision for Hill House in the aftermath of World War II. The children in Lower School looked splendid dressed in their national costume and sang their songs superbly. They then had a day filled with activities from around the world including food prepared by our chef in Cadogan, Mr Pascal.
Learning cannot and should not be limited to the classroom. Being situated in the centre of London we are lucky to be surrounded by world leading galleries and museums, many of which we can walk to. Recently the Art club visited the Saachi Gallery for a tour and workshop; the Drama Club toured RADA and the girls in Lower Transitus had a day at the Ragged School Museum to get an understanding of what it was like to be at school in Victorian times. This tied in with both their History curriculum and their English curriculum as they study Charles Dickens. Small School have been to the National Army Museum.
Founders’ Hall has been busy this week with both drama and music showcases as it will be again this coming week. Monday sees the pupils of Upper Gamma perform their self-created ‘Witches, wizards and potions’ production. On Friday our trumpet teacher, Mr S-C, is bringing his Brass quintet to Founders Hall for a concert in aid of the NSPCC. Do come and support these evenings, more details can be found in the diary on the website. Wednesday’s Assembly is our Remembrance Assembly. This should also be a special occasion.
On Tuesday the half-price uniform shop will be in operation in Cadogan Gardens. All the profits raised from the sales go to the St. Nicholas Fund at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital – please see the flyer attached.
