We had a fantastic summer fayre with the weather being kind to us until the end. There were so many old girls and boys who came to say good bye to our retiring headteacher, Steve Williams who is leaving us this July. He was presented with a a caricature of himself as a leaving present, put in the stocks and showered with water. There were loads of activities going on - splat the rat, coconut shy, sumo wrestling, horse rides, face painting, a delicious hog roast to name but a few. Egg tossing proved to be very popular with many a competitor splatted with egg. Thanks to all our helpers, all parents,children and old pupils for their support and especially to the PTA for there wonderful organisation - we had a fab time. Click on Steve to see the photos.

The Junior Wriggle Valley Players put on a fantastic and ambitious rendition of Romeo and Juliet, a musical romance, set in London in 2010, where two families, the Capulets and the Montagues are at war. There is racial tension because the Capulet family is of Hindu origin and the Montagues are of Western descent. The Mayoress of London tries to calm the situation. The rest, as they say, is history. Popeye and the Pixies played splendidly chosen musical numbers throughout the play.
The majority of the cast are either present St Andrew's children from Year 3 to 6 or past youngsters who are now at the Gryphon up to Year 10. The Shakesperian masterpiece was rewriiten for the Juniors by Matt and Annabel's mum, Sylvie Lord who also directed it and it was produced by the Juniors' Director and Ben and Josh's mum Caroline Hart. Well done to one and all.
Acorn, Holly and Oaks Classes are dressed up and ready to go....
