At Cathedral School we understand and value the importance of your health and well-being. Regular exercise, along with a healthy, well balanced diet will improve your potential both inside and outside of school. Healthy eating and exercise boosts brain power and makes you feel happy!
We would like to find out and understand more about your views on staying healthy and feeling safe and happy at school.
Miss Bailey and the School Council have devised a questionnaire to help with this.
A huge thank you to The CitiChoir who sang with the school choir as part of a special assembly this morning. The whole school had the privilege of listening to 4 songs from around the world and everyone joined together for a rousing rendition of Siyahamba. What a fantastic start to International Week!
Please comment on the following:
How did it feel to listen to the music?
If you sang in the choir, please tell us about your experience.
Congratulations to the Basketball team who came 1st in a Southwark 3v3 Basketball competition today. The competition was strong and we are very proud of our team, not only in their success at winning but also of their sportsmanship and teamwork. The team will now represent Southwark at the London Youth Games in Crystal Palace in June! Well done everyone!
Today the children and staff at Cathedral School dressed up as their favourite book characters and authors. The effort and creativity that went into the costumes was incredible.
At Cathedral School we feel that one of the best things about World Book Day is discovering new authors and remembering forgotten favourites A very exciting part of the day was the ‘Choose a story session’. Children were able to choose a story from a selection before finding out which teacher would read it to them.
Shrove Tuesday is a day of celebration as well as penitence, because it’s the last day before Lent. Throughout the United Kingdom, and in other countries too, people indulge themselves on foods that traditionally aren’t allowed during Lent. Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which were forbidden during Lent.
During our assembly, Miss Dace reminded us about the origins of Shrove Tuesday and we discussed things we could give up or start doing while Sara cooked a pancake from scratch, with the help of pupils.
The pancake was flipped in front of the whole school and lucky Miss St. Lewis ate it with lemon and sugar.
