Visitation Day at Aldenham Prep School is always a very special occasion for all the children and staff at the school. This year was made all the more special with the Guest of Honour Oliver Dowden MP.
The School’s Visitation Day event saw pupils aged from 4 to 11 rewarded for their all hard work, in front of friends, teachers and parents.
Mr Dowden gave an informative speech, enjoyed by all, before handing out the well-deserved prizes. He said: ‘It was a real pleasure to present the prizes at Aldenham Prep.
‘This wonderful day rightly recognised its students’ impressive achievements this year and I very much enjoyed the chance to speak to them about their work.
‘I’m grateful to everyone at the School for their warm hospitality and look forward to visiting again.’
Mrs Gocher, Headmistress at Aldenham Prep added ‘It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Dowden to Aldenham Prep and we hopefully will be able to welcome him again in the future’
A superb production from the Year 5 and 6 pupils at Aldenham Prep School left parents enthralled with the quality of the acting, singing, and dancing.
Playing to full houses in the school theatre the children excelled themselves. With amazing support from staff and parents with the make-up costumes and sets the production was quite simply breath-taking.
Mrs Gocher, Headmistress at Aldenham Prep School, said “You can see how hard the children have worked but more importantly you can see how much they have enjoyed the performances. I cannot thank them and the staff enough for this exceptional production. I am confident it is something the children will never forget and hopefully it will be the start of a lifelong appreciation of Shakespeare”
The winner of the recent IAPS Under 11 Girls National Table Tennis was Sienna Jetha. Sienna is currently in Year 4 at Aldenham Prep School so was really punching above her weight to triumph over pupils much older than her.
She was undefeated in all the games she played and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. Mrs Vicky Gocher, Headmistress at Aldenham Prep School, said “This is a terrific achievement; Sienna has shown great determination and was not deterred by facing older competitors. We are all very proud of her”
Sienna plays table tennis on a regular basis and is looking forward to entering more completions in the future. She is a very determined young lady who shows true sportsmanship; there is certain to be more success to come. Fantastic Sienna!
