Celebrating the year of the Rat

With Chinese a part of the curriculum at Westbourne, Chinese New Year is a great opportunity for our students to come together and celebrate the start of another new year, this time, The Year of the Rat! Mrs Jane Shi, our Chinese language teacher,  led celebrations in a traditional Chinese restaurant close to the school and boarding house.

Reception raising money for Australia

After the press coverage on Newsround, Reception and Year 1 have recently become very worried about the people and animals of Australia suffering due to the fires.

Deciding that they wanted to do something to help, they have been busy designing posters, speaking in assembly and organising cake sales.

With lots of local support, there was an amazing assortment of goodies brought in last Friday and the pupils managed to raise over £130 which will go directly to support those in need at this time in Australia.

Well done Westbourne Prep!
