Princesses, Pirates & High Achievers
The morning of Friday 24th February was dull and foggy but at the gates of Sark School there was no shortage of colour as the students arrived in fancy dress to mark the end of Literacy Week. The theme this year was pirates and princesses and the swirling mists added a dramatic backdrop as the children appeared in their wonderful costumes. Most impressive of all was Princess Jasmin who arrived by horse drawn carriage.
In the afternoon parents and friends were invited to watch the school assembly. Class One performed songs about pirates and princesses and the older children gave presentations on the research they have done into these figures in film and literature. The assembly finished with the premiere of Class Three’s ‘Pirates of the Channel Islands’, a charming film written, filmed and acted by the children.
Others news from Sark School is that Year Ten students Gabby Southern and Stephen Dewe have been recognised by the Nisai Virtual Academy as having made outstanding progress and have been invited to the House of Lords in May for a special celebration. Both are studying maths, English, information technology and science. Less than four percent of the Academy’s students achieve this award, an indication of just how well Stephen and Gabby have done. Working through Nisai requires a high level of motivation and application and all at Sark School are very proud of them.
