Well done and thank you to Miss Ward and the Choir who sang beautifully at the carol concert at the Colisseum last Wednesday. We were part of 400 children and it was truly magical. Thanks also to the 6 of you who came along to sing at the precinct on Saturday-it was cold but you did us proud.
And well done to Shelby, Ciara, Erin, Andrea, Lucia, Monica, Bella, Madeleine and Katie for coming third in the cheerleading competition on Sunday at the Leisure Centre. We are so proud of you! Well done!
Well done to Ethan Rice who came first out of 496 pupils who entered the Hertfordshire Maths Sumdog Contest for November with a score of 951 points.
And to Gia Chandarana who scored 909 points and came 14th! Not bad for someone who is only in Year 2-brilliant!
We have been awarded Artsmark!
Artsmark is Arts Council England's flagship programme which enables schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Trinity College London and 10 regional bridge organisations drive participation. Achieving Artsmark means that St Meryl has a number of very special qualities. It demonstrates that we:
-have an excellent arts and cultural offer
-are forward-thinking and open to development
-are committed to investing in our staff and young people
-are committed to listening to our learners and providing opportunities for our community
-have an effective approach to building sustainable relationships with arts and cultural organisations
-value and embed the arts and culture through a broad and balanced curriculum
We are very proud that we have received national recognition for our provision!
Thank you and well done to children and parents that brought in food for our Harvest celebration. 66 bags of food and goods were collected by the New Hope Trust who were very impressed with our efforts.
