So much has been happening in Prep School it’s hard to keep up!
Highlights include the Dance Show, where pupils in Years 1 and 2 took great pleasure in performing their three dances in front of their parents.
The recent Christmas shows where both Reception and Nursery entertained us all beautifully and with the usual glorious innocence and unpredictability of such young children. However, learning by experience to perform and speak in public when needed from an early age, and seeing this as normal is why St Helen’s girls emerge at 18 as formidable, assertive, confident and successful young women.
The Gables show was like a West End Musical! It certainly involved as much energy, vitality and joy. The development of the ability to perform is extraordinary between Early Years and Key Stage 1 and we are so proud of the standard that all the girls reached. Year 1 danced and sang amazingly well and the focus on their faces was a delight. Year 2 acted brilliantly and the level of collaboration on the stage was fantastic.
The on-stage prompting and support between the girls is what St Helen’s is all about and the school fosters this so brilliantly.
