April 2017

As we near the end of term, we have some lovely news to share.  We hope that you will also visit our Year Group pages to find out a little more.

Our Easter Service took place in school on Wednesday 5 April, with the children in P1-3 all singing and reading beautifully.  Thanks to Mrs Lowry for leading the service and to Mrs Knaggs and Mrs Ambrose for their direction of the music.  We must also recognise the support of all the staff in these year groups and, of course, the P3 parents for coming to take part.  Our guest speaker, Pastor Glenn Johnston, was fantastic, too!

Further excitement was waiting for the P2 year group on the same day, when a local farmer came to visit to tell the children all about the vegetables he grows.  The children created this fabulous pic collage with their iPads as a memory of the visit.  They can tell you lots about how vegetables grow, how they start life and what they look like when ready for eating.  Mr Hamilton very kindly left some behind as a healthy gift for the staff!

This last week of term has been busy throughout the school, but more so in P6 and P7, as the annual Andrews Memorial school play finally made it to the stage!  Peter Pan was a rip-roaring yarn and a rip-roaring success - a huge team effort from staff and pupils alike.  We were also privileged to host two sell-out performances in the Andrews Hall.  Under the overall production skills of Miss Henderson, supported by the musical direction of Mrs Ambrose and Mrs Knaggs, with amazing new costumes by Mrs Moorhead and Mrs Lutton, and presented in glorious light and sound by Miss Hall, the audiences were treated to fantastic talents front stage and back.  Well done to everyone - and what a fantastic group of children in P7 who stepped up to the mark, over it and way beyond it in their effort and commitment to the production.

Turning our attention back to sport, we were privileged to welcome three past-pupils back to assembly with a very special trophy.  Timothy, Matthew and Joshua, alongside their captain, Stuart, all played in Grosvenor Grammar's winning football Schools' Cup side this year - and last year.  They were joined To play in a schools' final on St Patrick's Day is a dream come true, to win is something special, but to successfully defend the title is a mark of some brilliance.  Pictured here with a few of our own hopefuls - remembering that just a few years ago these young men were in the same position as our P7s!

We must also recognise four of our past-pupils who represented Regent House in the Schools' Bowl Final in rugby.  Unfortunately they weren't on the winning side on this occasion, but nevertheless deserve congratulations.  So, to Kyle, Robbie, Iain and Aaron, well done!

And lastly, as we sign-ff for the term, a beautiful (and very tasty) Easter cake from our P1 bakers - have a wonderful Easter everyone!
