Week 9 Update

On Friday we had a special PRIDE assembly to kick off our school wide focus on cultural diversity and the Olympic Games. As part of the festivities, each class drew a country out of a bucket. All of the countries represent nationalities of children at Beckenham School. During the build up to the Games we will be finding out more about and supporting our selected country.
Room 16: Great Britain
Room 17: China
Room 18: Netherlands
Room 19: Japan

Music Groups: Beckenham groups performed superbly on Tuesday and Wednesday evening at the South Music Festival. Both the Band and the Senior Chorale group shone, we were all very proud!

Learning Conferences: If you haven't yet done so, please visit School Links or ring Caroline in the office to book your learning conference on either Tues 26th or Wed 27th of June (2pm finish these days). Reports will be discussed and handed over at conferences. This will also give you a chance to visit the hall and see the Science and Technology Expo.

Cross Country: We were very proud of our children who ran at the Canterbury Primary Schools Cross Country. All came in the top half of their fields. Special congratulations to Emily for her 12th placing in the 11 year old girls race.

Basketball: We have a boys and a girls team entered in the Indoor Tournament on Tuesday. A notice with final reminders has been sent home on Friday.

Hot milo: Please support the Student Council who are selling hot milo on Fridays at morning tea.
