Dear Parents/Carers

It’s been another busy Towers week. As well as all the usual senior play rehearsals and junior and senior sports fixtures there have been a few very memorable highlights.

On Tuesday morning, Yr 5 parents enjoyed a really entertaining assembly on space. The girls and Miss Preston had worked very hard to produce a variety of activities. We saw a sketch of a family watching the first moon landing in 1969 (a date some of us remember very well!) which included great humour, historical accuracy and convincing acting. We were moved by a beautiful but eerie piece of space music composed by the girls and loved their poetry and artistic creations in the form of origami stars. Well done girls!

On Wednesday we held our big Towers/Snailspace sponsored walk. On the hottest October day for 7 years, the whole school took Brighton by surprise, taking in the beautifully designed snails on the way. Moving together as one, it was hard to miss us as we wended our way through the city. Eating our packed lunches on the beach made the day rather special – despite being dive-bombed by a flock of starving and tenacious sea gulls. The pupils impressed all the passers-by and experienced the true meaning of Wellbeing Wednesday – fresh air, good company and exercise! Photos of the day can be viewed here.

Wednesday was also the 115th anniversary of the arrival of the very first Towers girls in 1903, a day we remembered in assembly, with Sister Mary Andrew reading out an account of one young girl’s first impressions of The Towers.

On Thursday morning, several parents joined us for our drop-in session. It was lovely to catch up with the parents, who came, all of whom were treated to delicious pastries provided by Rosemary’s team.

Today a group of Yr 7 and 8 girls are off on a netball weekend – we hope they win lots of their matches and have fun.

Wishing you all a fun weekend.
