Many of you will have already met Miss Chubb who joined us and our fully time nursery during August.
I would like to officially welcome Ashley to the whole school. As you can see, she has already built impressively strong relationships with both children and parents alike who have appreciated her open and engaging manner.
I would also like to welcome Mr Sims, our second new member of staff having joined us at the start of this academic year. Mr Sims has previously taught at a number of prep schools both here in the UK and in Dubai.
Matt has already made a very positive start since officially starting in the last week. I would also like to extend my welcome to his two children who have also joined us. Matt led a particularly impressive and interesting professional development session using the Socrative application for iOS that you may well be becoming increasingly familiar with in the coming months.
I was very impressed with just how smart our children looked this morning, in addition to their broad smiles as they entered school. I would like to remind you that girls in Prep School should now be wearing the pink and white striped blouse and that the white blouse is no longer part of our uniform.
Games lessons for children in Reception to Year 6 will start next week at KGS Ditton Field, although the forecast looks to be good, will need maroon football socks and football boots for the term. The full uniform list can be found here.
We do also recognise that the black games shorts can be a little large for children in Reception who are joining us for our regular games lessons at the impressive Kingston Grammar School playing fields. Should you find this to be the case, they are very welcome to wear a plain black pair of shorts until such time they are able to fit the school shorts.
