    Get cooking ....cakes and dishes for the International Stall
    After half-term, we'll need lots of cakes for the cake get planning during half term!

    We also need food for the International's your chance to create and share your favourite traditional dish. We'd love to have food from all over the world - to reflect our international school community!  Curries, goulash, pasta, vegetarian foods, whatever you can make!

    DANCE-A-THON...Friday 30 June

    ...when all students will be dancing the day away.... Watch out for more details after half term, including how you can support your girls. But in the meantime, to pull off this dancing, fundraising extravaganza, we desperately need a creative team to help to turn the school hall into a colourful festival / disco space for the day. We’d also love to get recommendations for hiring things like a bubble machine and large-scale party events decorations - do you have any good contacts? Or a garage full of disco lights…?!  If you have anything to lend, contacts we can use, or would be free to volunteer to help on the day, please contact us at


    Many thanks for your support!

    Best wishes
