A Word from the Head of the Prep School

Shebbear CollegePrep School

Just before our half-term break, the Prep House Quiz was a very closely fought affair, with the outcome determined almost by the final question. Many congratulations to Thorne’s team of Finley, Emily, George and Arron, who came away with the win, just ahead of Ruddle and then Way. All of the children involved did a super job, showing lightning fast reactions on the buzzers.

Our Prep House Captains delivered their latest assemblies on Tuesday, with topics including World War 2, a general knowledge quiz, and kindness. Well done to Arron, Tom and Lydia for preparing and delivering their assemblies so well.

Teamwork was the topic for Monday’s assembly, and this has certainly been evident throughout the week, not least in our sporting events which have included a gala at West Buckland for our swim team, and a training afternoon, also at West Buckland, for our under 9 netballers. We also heard about Tyler’s recent swimming successes and Summer’s under 10 Devon hockey trials coming up this weekend.

Golden sticker winners this week were Annie, Oliver, Sonny, Scarlett, Lila-Mai, Ahmad and Lydia. Our BAFTA and Manners Medal were awarded to Freddie and Issyrespectively, and our musicians of the week were Alfie and Summer, for their performances on the piano and flute.

The best of luck to our gymnastics squad, as they are competing tomorrow at Kingsley School, in the North Devon Championships.
