Stover Preparatory School
It is hard to believe that we only have two weeks before we break for Easter. Thank you to all those parents who supported at our Cross-Country Event and recent music assemblies. I would like to take this opportunity to once again celebrate the achievements of our pupils over the course of this term so far, whether academic, sporting or musical; many of which have been mentioned in our weekly ‘Stover Life’ bulletin.
One of our school’s showcase events, the Preparatory School production of ‘Robin Hood’ is happening on Friday 22nd March at 2.30pm and 6.00pm. Every pupil from Year 3 –Year 6 will take part. Parents, friends and family are warmly invited to attend.
With Easter rapidly approaching, we will also be holding a competition for the best Easter garden and bonnet/hats in each year group. Gardens and bonnets/hats should be brought to school on Tuesday 26th March and handed directly to form teachers. Entries will then be displayed in Turkey Hall and then judged. Winners for each class will be announced in our final Awards Assembly on Wednesday 27th March by our Art Lead,
