Dear Parents and Visitors
I had the most wonderful message this week from a Canbury parent whose child had been helped by not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE fellow students. I won't go into detail, but suffice to say the following students are a credit to themselves, their parents and indeed, Canbury: Margaux (Y13), Armiya (Y12), Luca (Y11), Alexander B (Y10) and Kiran (Y8) have all, at different stages this week, helped the same fellow student. I am always immensely proud when I hear such positive lovely things about our Canbury family. Keep up the good work!
Not to be outdone in the 'being helpful' stakes, Year 7 Anders was to be spotted this week spending time with Y6 student Freddie who will be joining us in September. It's one of the many things I love about Canbury - students of all ages mix freely.
Well done to our Year 11 students who have conducted themselves impeccably during this year's GCSE examinations. We look forward to seeing them back on results day, Thursday 22 August 2019, when school will open from 10am to 11am. In the meantime, sit back, put up your feet, read, chill, get some fresh air and exercise, do some cooking, go up to London and take advantage of all the free places you can visit, spend time with friends, help around home and most of all, ENJOY!
Now it's the turn of the rest of the school for their end-of-year examinations. These will take place for everyone next week. Please ensure your child comes to school well prepared, having had a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast. All will be well.

Amazing creations in the Art Department
The Year 8 and 9 graphics students have been busy creating stencils and using these to produce some amazing repeated patterns. Here are just a selection of their fantastic results. Well done to all, with a special shout out to Lucas in Year 8 for his fantastic turtle design which is currently decorating Ms Clancy's office and the top of this newsletter, and which Mrs Smith has declared she would love a reversible dress made out of. Get to it Lucas!
