Dear Parents/Carers, In this week’s parsha, Yisro, the concept of freedom is celebrated. Interestingly, this freedom is a result of the Torah being given, rather than the freedom following the exodus from Egypt. Many of the commentators discuss this shift in the concept of freedom: this is not freedom from oppression but a different kind […]

Tu B’Shevat at the Girls’ School

The H.I.P.E team created the most fantastic Tu B’Shevat initiative on Monday which they named #ijuiced4jews. The event opened with an inspirational talk about gratitude and giving, in order to focus the students on the ideas of the day.

Mrs Lebrett and Mrs Brice have outlined, in their email to you earlier this week, the measures we are […]

Girls’ School – Football Update!

Another equaliser from SJC, another goal from Hasmo and SJC equalised again! The intensity increased and SJC started mastering their substitutions. Our Year 7 team of […]

Dear Parents/Carers, Just two weeks ago we were enjoying the excitement and light of Chanukah and now we are plunged into the darkness of rising infections and another year of disruption to travel plans and family celebrations to say nothing of burst water mains.

From the superb casting to the exciting ensemble and the phenomenal dancers- everything about this evening’s performance […]
