A week of Christmas festivities

Posted: 6th December 2019

Christmas workshop

For the fourth year in a row, we had students from year 1 right up to IB2 take part in a Christmas decoration workshop under the kind supervision of Mrs Toni Horne from The Lily Pad Florist!

The event was accompanied by Christmas music and put everyone in a great Christmas spirit!

Secret Santa celebration for Pre-IB

The mock exams have started, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little bit of fun at Westbourne! Pre-IB have kicked off the festive period with a mini-secret Santa celebration.

Mrs Jessop had baked them some festive white chocolate chip muffins which were eaten along to the tunes of very well known Christmas songs. Pre-IB proved how very well they know each other by now with an array of incredibly thoughtful gifts which made everyone laugh.

Everyone loved their presents!

Year 6 decorate for Christmas

Two weeks left in school until we break up, so year 6 have started creating decorations for their room. Lots of creativity and teamwork going on!

They were also asked to think of a present ‘for the world’ – some truly lovely ideas were generated! Some of our favourite ones include ‘no more plastic in the sea’ and ‘a cure for all allergies’.

Prep Carol Singing

Our Prep School choir was in John Lewis where they performed Christmas carols to raise money for Welsh Hearts. The young singers raised the remarkable £298, which we applaude them all for!

Learning about plastic-free living

Eleven students from year 5 to year 8 spent the morning at Techniquest for a plastic-free information session. Afterwards, they enjoyed the exhibit and had time to play around. 

Our students were absolutely brilliant on the day, as they thought of pertinent and searching questions to grill the staff there. Ms Dubois-Jones wanted to commend particularly George, Michael, Evie and Megan for their engagement on the day and Adara, Matilda and Megan for starting the write up of a follow up article.
