With half term almost upon us it has been a busy few weeks at Blewbury School. Years 2 and 6 have been sitting their SATs (if that is the correct diction) and the school as a whole have been making their way through the National Curriculum with some gusto. The day seldom stops at 3:15 as there are after school clubs on every day with topics ranging from Construction, Art and Maths to tennis lessons and even the odd game of cricket. Very civilised indeed.
Which brings me nicely to the role of the School in the wider community, as even after the clubs have finished there are still meetings to attend and events to plan.
One such event is the upcoming “Music For All” Event at 19:00 on Thursday 16th June with Blewbury’s own Richard Blackford. For those who have not had the pleasure of experiencing Richard’s work he is a world renowned conductor and writer, who has composed four operas, two musicals, much concert music and the scores to over two hundred films. Blewbury School are very proud to have Richard front the event and talk about his experiences and works. The evening will also offer live music from pupils, some information about the role that music plays in the school, and a Q&A with Richard. We do expect the evening to be very popular as it is open to all, not just parents with children at the School, so book your places in advance, through emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
On a completely different tack, highlighting the diversity of events at Blewbury, don’t miss the Fun Run and Tough Kid Challenge on 26th June on the School Field. The fun run starts at 10:30 and the Tough Kid Challenge at 12:00 noon. Do come and join us or at least look out for the competitors on their route around the Village and cheer them on their way. All are welcome and the School will provide a BBQ, smoothies and a bar (for grown-ups!) on the day.
With so much going on you can be sure that the half term break will be well earned! Mike Evans, Parent Governor
