End-Of-Term Message From The Headmistress

This term has gone so quickly, although we seem to have managed to pack a lot in, as you will see if you look back at the newsletters. The Malta tour left this morning, and we look forward to news of matches won and sights visited when  they return next week.  I hope you all have a wonderful half term, with time to relax, and time to visit interesting places either here or abroad.

Walk to School Week!

Next week Devonshire House is running a ‘Walk to School’ Campaign. This will be from Monday 6th October- Friday 10th October 2014. We would like to encourage the children to walk their journey to school if it is possible and safe to do so, or to walk part of it. Each class will have a foot- step- chart where children can add a ‘foot step’ sticker each day. The class with the most stickers will be mentioned in the newsletter and receive a certificate!
