9 November; the week at Read

Diwali at Read


Pre-School and Pre-Prep have been enjoying and celebrating Diwali this week.  Mrs Aggarwal and her son Atharv in Pre-School and Mr & Mrs Chadha and their daughter Rhea in Year 2 came into school in traditional Indian dress and shared how they celebrate Diwali with their families.

We had great fun making diva lights and Pre-School made a huge rangoli flower in the playground with powder paint.  There was lots of delicious Indian food to taste and a whole range of Diwali activities.  Thank you to the Aggarwals and Chadhas for including us in their families' celebrations!


Sixth Form Awards Day

Members of the Upper Sixth were invited to a ceremony at Leeds Beckett University today in order to receive certificates for their hard work last year on the Progression Module. This is a qualification offered by the university to help young people to prepare for further study and employment, through a series of activities such as mock interviews and CV writing. Well done to those pupils who successfully completed all the required tasks, with particular mention to Daniel Phillips and Carlton Wakama who were given special awards for their achievements.

Brothers in Arms


Brothers Matthew and Ben Roberts pose with the Headmaster as wreath bearers in their respective CCF contingent uniforms.

On Wednesday 11th November, staff, pupils and parents of Read School turned out in force to pay tribute to those fallen old boys of the school. Particular plaudits go to the CCF and their commanding officers, who encouraged us to think about those serving in our armed forces now.

Before the service began, the Army and RAF contingents of the CCF did themselves and their officers proud as they marched through the village to the church.
