Our EYFS children joined other children around the world to mark Winnie the Pooh Day. It is observed on 18th of January to commemorate the author, A. A. Milne’s birthday. The occasion is celebrated with activities such as picnics featuring a lot of honey, teddy bears, games and story-telling among many others.
Our Braestars carried out fun activities which included: bee hunt, making a bee-hive mural and honey-cereal snacks, dressing up as story-characters.
The children enjoyed the opportunity to learn from Winnie the Pooh and her friends.
We are coming to the end of week two. It has definitely been a busy week for the students. I am now confident that the students have settled in well and adjusted to the daily routine. It was certainly pleasing to see a range of extra-curricular activities taking place last term (term one). This provided students with opportunities to explore their potential outside the classroom. We also have a range of activities lined up for this term. I request that we support the children to achieve their aspirations in and out of the classroom.

We are excited to host this event, which gives important information to our students who choose to further their studies in the UK.

We are convinced that our current Year 12 and 13 students will benefit from attending the Fair and receive first-hand information on studying in the UK.
