Three events took place at Charlton, this week as the sunny weather brightened everything up.
Mrs Paul and her class began the gardening club by beautifying the pots at the front of the school.
Some of our older children began their cycling proficiency course. This is a real life skill opportunity and one which every child should take. It not only encourages a healthy lifestyle but keeps them safe at the same time. The instructors were very professional and the children enjoyed learning how to ride safely.
And finally, six of our young people made their first (for some their second) Holy Communion. It was a bright, sunny day and lovely to see all the families celebrating together. The girls looked beautiful and the boys very smart indeed.
It was Aztec mania last week! A huge thank you needs to go to Mr and Mrs Collins for organising a very engaging and insightful workshop for our Years 4 and 5. As you can see they created brightly coloured Aztec print headbands and sun calendars, made and sampled chocolate milk, ate salsa and tortillas, and dressed up in traditional costume with music and dancing. Fun was had by all!

The Charlton House Ski Team took part in their maiden event on 11th May 2013 – the Southampton Area Ski Association (SASA) Interschool Challenge. The team were thrilled to bring back some silverware for the school trophy cabinet, having achieved 3rd place overall. Charlton were skiing against schools with older and more experienced teams, including some skiers who are competing at national level, so were pleasantly surprised to be on the podium at the end of the event.
The racing comprised of 3 individual timed runs through slalom gates with the best times of 3 of the team being aggregated to determine the overall result. The event was held at Southampton Alpine Centre’s dry-slope which is where the team members practice under the guidance of the Alpine Centre and SASA coaches.
The team comprised: Hannah Groves, Nicole Groves, Adam Harrison-Smith, Laura Harrison-Smith, Eloise Mason and Cameron Yates. Eloise and Cameron had never raced before so for them this result was especially rewarding.
The team are now looking forward to the next event, the Southern Schools Open, which will be held at the same venue on 30 Jun. More skiers are welcome to join – if you are interested contact the team manager, Tony Smith on firstname.lastname@example.org.
