Today started with me taking Key Stage 2 Assembly talking about my
Vietnam/Cambodia Cycle. I decided to be fairly specific so just
explaining,with the help of a few photos,how the children lived in their
villages and their way of life asa regards home and school life,food and
transport. This I will continue at the end of term when there is more time.
Then on to a hugely enjoyable afternoon. You cannot beat the Mothers Day
Service. Church full,congregation over 120 with every chid taking part
in thanking their Mums for just being “the best Mums”. Form 1 told us
about the History of the Day and their experiences with their mums.
Rec,1,and 2 sang a Supermum song.Forms 3 and 4 each recited a poem.
Class 5 sang Dona Nobis Pacem. The Choir sang their song and then with
the school sang Father we Adore You in a very impressive 3 part
special.Form 6 then thanked the mums through special prayers and the
service was finished with the school song. Just such a fabulous family
Then onto the Forms 3/4 Hockey competition at Knole Academy.
Georgia,Katy,Ted,Mia,Dylan and Joaquim were the 6 team squad in this 4 a
side competition. With a 3.30 start it was cold (luckily children never
feel the cold !!) and the team entertained us in the usual St Johns way
of giving 100% in effort and sportsmanship. We were well beaten 4-0 by a
fine Amhurst first team but all the other matches were close end to end
games with us winning 2-0 v Lady Boswells 2, 1-0 v St Lawrence, 3-0 v
Sev CP 3 and losing 0-1 to Lady Boswells 2 We missed going through to
the semi-finals by the odd point but a great afternoon and the children
would have learnt a great deal from the matches.
