St Saviour’s Book Day 2017
A huge thank you to the children and staff for a wonderful St Saviour’s Book Week last week. The poetry recital, book sale and dress as a book character day we all so much fun and fantastic to see the children showing their love of books.
A huge thank you to our English Leader, Miss Kelly, for arranging so a great fun filled week!
We had another amazing day at PGL- everyone had huge smiles on their faces all day long despite the wet weather! We took part in some great activities and some of the children were amazing and conquered their fears- completing challenges they didn’t think they would be able to. All of the teachers also had a great day and joined. Mr Chown made it to the top of the trapeze pole and Miss Tavernier and Ms Holme were crack shots in the archery.
What has been amazing to see today is all of our children working together and supporting each other. PGL staff members have also commented on how great our children and staff have been which makes us very proud of our school.
We arrived safely at Marchants Hill PGL at 12pm and were greeted by our PGL leaders. We had a picnic lunch and then put our bags away, no time to unpack yet! We then headed off for our first afternoon of activities. By 5:00 we had already had so much fun: Giant swing, air rifle and aeroball.
We were soon heading back to our rooms to unpack, settle in and get ready for dinner and capture the flag. Everyone had a great first day. Photos from day one below:

In January members of the school council were lucky enough to visit the Town Hall and Lewisham’s Mayor, Sir Steve Bullock!
The children were made to feel very welcome and posed some superb, very extracting questions to Sir Steve Bullock. The children are a real credit to the school and their behaviour was superb.
Many thanks to Miss Tavernier, our Assistant Head and School Council Leader, for making the visit possible.

Choir performance at Thames Festival
St Saviour’s Choir Performance
Kids Choir is an educational project that connects children to their community and river through the joy of singing and performing.
Now in its thirteenth year, the project has engaged over 9,000 pupils from London Boroughs including; Greenwich, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southward, Tower Hamlets, and Wandsworth and entertained audiences since 2003 where Kids Choir made its debut at the Thames Festival.
In 2016, Kids Choir was led by conductor Richard Frostick and featured a new commission by renowned children’s composer Lin Marsh alongside many world and river themed songs.
St Saviour’s Choir were proud to take part in such a wonderful event.
Click on the link below to see a video produced by Thames Festival of all the choirs performing.
A huge thank you to Mrs Mullings, our superb Art teacher, and her helpers Christiana, Jerusha and Amaka on the amazing friendship bench!
In the Summer Term we asked children for designs and we were amazed with the results! After the winner was chosen Mrs Mullings and her team set about putting the design onto the bench and then painting it. I’m sure you’ll agree it is an amazing piece of work.
The idea behind the friendship bench is that if any children feel lonely, or sad, or have no one to play with they make their way to the friendship bench were someone is always there to help.

Class 6 PGL Update!
We all enjoyed our last morning at PGL.
After the Campfire last night, it was time to pack our bags and head to bed. Everyone went to sleep much earlier as they were exhausted after a really busy and energetic day.
We had to leave our rooms by 7.50 this morning and get ready for our last morning of activities. PGL staff commented again on how incredibly organised we all were. All bags were lined up ready to go before breakfast and all children were dressed and raring to go.
It may have been the last morning but the fantastic activities continued. Children got involved in trapeze, fencing and aeroball. At 12.15 we had our last lunch meal and then started loading up our coach ready to head home (with many of the children falling asleep).
The kids have been a real credit to the teachers, the school and their parents.
Well done class 6.
We had another amazing day at PGL- everyone had huge smiles on their faces all day long! We took part in some great activities and some of the children were amazing and conquered their fears- completing challenges they didn’t think they would be able to do.
All of the teachers also had a great day and joined in with everything. Ms Simon bravely completed the zip wire, Ms Tavernier showed off her fencing skills and Mr Chown made it down the abseiling wall.
What has been amazing to see today is all of our children working together and supporting each other, no matter which group they are in. They have strengthened their friendships and enjoyed all of the new experiences together.
PGL staff members have commented on how great our children have been which makes us very proud of our school.
In the evening we had another great dinner and then off to the campfire, where Wayne had been learning some songs to play us on the guitar.
Tomorrow morning will be another early start for breakfast (and a few more activities) before we have to head back to school.
From Mr Chown
We arrived safely at Marchants Hill PGL 12.00 and were greeted by our PGL leader, George. We had a picnic lunch and then put our bags away, no time to unpack yet!
We then headed off for our first afternoon of activities. By 17.00 had already had so much fun: Zip wire, power fan, swinging on the giant swing and airball. We were soon heading back to our rooms to unpack, settle in and get ready for dinner and an evening of capture the flag. Everyone had a great first day.
