As always this term sees the PE Department gearing up for an exciting term with our upcoming annual Dance Show. This year we are shaking things up a little and changing the venue and we are so excited that we have been able to secure Watersmeet for our pupils to showcase their talents.
Girls have been practicing since way before the Christmas Holidays and we have no doubt that this year they will not fail to impress!
After school clubs are in full swing with the help of Soul Performing Arts (Twitter: @Gotsoulofficial) who are choreographing some amazing, upbeat performances for our Year 7-10 Girls.
The date of our Dance Show is Wednesday 19th April and tickets will be on sale soon!
Hoodies and t-shirts are on sale via Beat school uniforms (www.beatschooluniforms.co.uk) and there is still time for performers to get their orders in!
We hope you will come to join us on the night to see some fantastic performances from our pupils!
This February half-term 24 Sixth Form students, accompanied by 3 members of staff, skied in the Italian resort of Courmayeur. With plenty of snowfall in the weeks leading up to the trip, we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine for the majority of the trip. A fantastic time was had by all with lots of falls, laughter and progress made by all.
It is hoped that February 2018 will see a similar trip go ahead. Watch this space!
15 JOA students visited Regina Mundi school in Milan last week on our first MFL exchange in many years. Students were able to interact in Italian with the families they stayed with and while they were at school, they were involved in various activities from Science experiments to games and a pizza workshop. Students also had the opportunity to visit famous landmarks in Milan, Florence and Venice, were they also experienced the Carnival. An unforgettable time was had by all and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the Italian students during the last week of the Spring term!
Don’t have a Christmas Jumper but fancy the chance to win a prize and raise money for Udayan?
What about customising a jumper from home?
Take a your inspiration from staff winner Miss Fouhy from 2015!
