This week: Founder’s Day, Inspiration from Space and Light, Sixth Form Head Students and Student Leadership Team
Commemorating Frances Mary Buss on Founder’s Day, 29 March
Our annual commemoration of the work of Frances Mary Buss, our founder, was a great success. Students rehearsed over the days leading up to the occasion and made hundreds of posies on the afternoon before Founders’ Day. The Head students spoke with great poise, confidence and insight about their time as leaders in Camden School for Girls, exploring ways in which they have been influenced by the school, and how they have influenced others. Music from the choir and orchestra was beautiful, with some particularly moving solo performances, and all our students concentrated and participated superbly well.
Thank you to all guests who attended. We hope you enjoy some photos of the event.
Inspiration from Space and Light
The new, extended foyer is now open, and, in a few days, the builders will finally leave the school. It has not been an easy project; the weather and various challenges with the construction of our two extensions have led to a significant delay in completion. However, on Founder’s Day, for the very first time, students, staff and guests came in through our wonderful new entrance, thoroughly enjoying the space, light and sense of welcome that it provides. The sixth form now has improved classroom, socialising and study space, and the stupendous 60 for 60 campaign run by CASCA has exceeded all expectations and enabled us to furnish and decorate the new areas to a very high specification.
Many thanks to all who have made it possible - Camden LA, CASCA, all students who helped with fund-raising, friends of the school and alumni, and thanks to the staff and students for their flexibility and patience through the cold and the noise and the dust.
Please come along and help us celebrate the opening of the new spaces on 3 May, 5.00 - 7.00 pm.
