A message from Perdy
This term seems
to have been all about photography, fitness and food! Children,
parents and staff got snapping for our photography competition:
“Three of a Kind”. School Council took their role as competition
judges very seriously and finally announced that the winners
winner: Fernando Castro
winner: Carole Mullett
(To see Fernando’s and Carole’s three photographs, plus the
runners up, please visit the Photo Competition Room on Fronter.)
12th-16th March was Sport Relief Week, when children and staff
completed fitness challenges to raise money for charity. A
special mention must go to Rahul Kothari, who completed a
Sport Relief Mile. The total raised by the school for Sport
Relief is £200 and rising!
As we approach the end of term, all the children are busily
rehearsing for the Music and Drama Extravaganza on Wednesday
28th March, to which all parents are invited. One particular
group of children, together with Amanda and Georgie, are rehearsing
for another important event: Harrow’s Dance Showcase. We wish
them luck with their performance on the evening of Tuesday
27th March. We know they’ll be great!
And last, but
definitely not least, the new Alexandra School Cookbook, “What’s
Sauce for the Goose” is at the printers now! This book includes
lots of favourite, healthy recipes, submitted by families,
staff and Anoushka, our cook. Congratulations to Gemma who
has organised, edited and pulled the whole thing together.
We hope the book will be on sale at the Music and Drama Extravaganza,
so look out for it then. Something no cook or kitchen should

has been nearly 8 weeks since I went into hospital. The
surgeons cut away the diseased and damaged bones around
my knee and inserted a new Triathlon joint which is built
with high-grade plastics and polymers . It is held in
place with stainless steel pins, drilled and screwed into
the bones. I wonder if I will set off the security alerts
at the airport? Recovery has been harder than I expected–
but then I have to realise that I am not 21 any longer.Nevertheless,
I’m glad to be coming back to work!
I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to
Perdy and the rest of the team, who have so effectively
kept the school running this term.
you and your family enjoy the school holidays.
Don’t forget - Children are back at school on Monday 16thApril.
