Principal’s Corner

The willow is closely associated with the Goddess Hecate in Greek Mythology. A powerful goddess of the Underworld who had links to the Moon and provides powers of sorcery and witchcraft. Well Emma, Sara & Laura certainly worked up their magic with the help of the pupils and produced a wonderful willow arbour in the school garden. The teachers cant wait to tell their tales and stories of mystery and intrigue inside. In the school forty days and nights have passed and the celebration of the festival of Easter concluded the term. A final service in church was very kindly linked to the giving of chocolate eggs thanks to George Bray who has a long association with the school. Many thanks George. Aeife was a star and played solo on the flute. When school returns after Easter the focus is on SATs preparation for Years Two and Six. The Upper Juniors will be also asking is there enough food produced in the world to go round. The Lower Juniors will focus their efforts on the History & Geography of Dilwyn while spiders those wonderful eight hairy legged Arachnids will continue to crawl around the Infants carpet.
