Dear Parents


This week has been one of dressing up, rehearsing, memorising lines and songs and exploring another curriculum, the "hidden curriculum" that is incorporated when presenting a play such as Narnia.  The excitement is brewing and we are so proud of the boys and the way they have embraced this production is nothing short of remarkable.  An enormous thank you to parents for bringing boys early, fetching late and adapting their programme to suit us all.

We are so proud of the boys who are walking independently into school in the mornings.  One of the expectations from this time of the year in Grade R is for boys to be dropped off to enter the classroom on their own and unpack their own bags.  This should continue from the beginning of Grade 1 and most definitely in Grade 2.

Sport will continue as usual next week as well as the week of the Narnia production.  We remind parents that in the case of rain, boys will be supervised for the normal duration of their sport practice, either in a classroom or another convenient venue.

Dress Rehearsal - All Gr 1 & 2 boys

19 August

Final Dress Rehearsal - All Gr 1 & 2 boys

There are still a few tickets available.  You may purchase them from the school shop, cash only.  Please be reminded of the rehearsal for ALL boys tomorrow morning.  Please refer to your notifications around times or refer to the Narnia drop down box on the Bishops website.  We appeal to parents to please be punctual to fetch their boys as they start to panic when others go home and they are left behind.   No parents will be allowed into the theatre during the rehearsals.


On Wednesday 23rd, Thursday 24th and Friday 25th, school lessons will begin at 9am.  This gives the boys a little extra time to rest during the performances.  Please note that there will be one classroom in every grade open from 7.30am for any boys who do arrive early.  They will be supervised until they can go to their own classes to start the day.

Please contact Mrs Catherine Rheeder: for further information.

Wishing you an amazing, restful weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Head of Pre-Prep
