CHS News November 2016

School Visits

Mrs Victoria Hampton and Miss Grunewald are currently very busy with visits to various prep and senior schools. These visits began with Wetherby Prep where they met Alice Olney, Senior Mistress, and Emma Hart, Senior Deputy Head. This visit was followed by a trip across the park to meet Alexander Wulffen-Thomas, the new Headmaster, at St Philip’s. During the coming weeks, Mrs Hampton and Miss Grunewald will be visiting University College School, Westminster Under School, Westminster Cathedral Choir School and Sussex House. Miss Grunewald and Mr Westerman visited City of London School for Girls for a delicious breakfast and an impressive tour of the building and facilities where they gained valuable information relating to the entry process.

 

Visiting CHS, we have had the pleasure of welcoming Georgina Hood, the Principal of Paint Pots Nurseries and Philip Williams, who will be the head of Eaton Square Senior School, a new coeducational senior school opening in September 2017. This week, we were particularly delighted to welcome Vivienne Durham, the former headmistress of Francis Holland, Regents Park, who now works for an educational consultancy.

 

Menu

Following a survey conducted by the Form Six girls on pupils’ favourite lunches, there have been some tweaks to the Autumn/Winter menu for the second half of the term. You can access the new menu via the School website. We were impressed to learn that popular choices were both healthy and nutritious although almost everyone has room for a slice of Laura’s chocolate pudding!

 

School Photographs

After last year’s very successful individual and joint CHS sibling photographs arranged just in time for Christmas presents, we have once again invited Bentley Photographic to photograph all the children on Monday 14th November. This gives you plenty of time to arrange hair cuts if needed.

 

Junior and Form One Coffee Morning

Mrs Victoria Hampton and Miss Grunewald are looking forward to welcoming parents from the junior classes in the dining room on Monday morning between 10:00 and 11:00.

 

Road Safety Talks

This week, Mrs Walsh arranged a visit from Westminster’s Road Safety Officer to give all the children a talk about road safety. Afterwards, many of the children were heard discussing the differences of Pelican and Toucan crossings and all the children were delighted with their gift of a flashing light.

 

Miss Wilkins

A warm welcome to Miss Olivia Wilkins who is helping in Form One for the second half term as part of her work experience. So far, Miss Wilkins has not stopped smiling since she arrived so it looks as if Form One are making her feel very welcome.

 

Book Fair with Daunt Books (Marylebone High Street)

Miss Grunewald’s Book Fair attracted a good turn out of parents and was a great success. Working with a local, independent bookshop meant that we were able to provide a wonderful selection of books. Happy Weekend Reading to all!
