I was up at Hollybush Lane yesterday to see another example of the help local clubs give to the Primary Schools.
The John Heuerman Tennis Academy organised, with Clare Strange, the Primary Schools Tennis Competition.
Carrie; Eloise; Emilio; Andrew; Megan; Tilly; Aishvene and Georgia represented St. John’s in what was essentially a learning and training day, with a large number of beginners gaining valuable experience and enjoying the whole afternoon. I’m now looking forward to Wednesday, when we have the Tag Rugby Festival organised by the Sevenoaks Rugby Club.
We headed back to school to see the School Music Concert. A full hall saw 40 mins of inspirational music performed with great determination. Real talent with exciting potential, everyone smiling and enjoying themselves. Here for all to see, was the 22 strong Woodwind Orchestra; 7 members of the elite Recorder Club; Year 3 playing their recorders with 4 Percussion instruments accompanying; the 40 pupils of the Key Stage 2 Choir and to finish, the School Orchestra – comprising 16 pupils and 3 members of staff. Lizzie Hughes who has settled in as our Music Teacher with such speed, and her team of individual instrumental teachers and helpers must be congratulated on developing all our musical talent to achieve the high standards we all saw today.
Another great day in the life of St. John’s.
