Christmas Fair

One sleep to go! The Christmas Fair returns to QPA tomorrow, from 3:30 – 5:30. There will be lots of Christmas goodies, music and activities. You never know, there might even be a special guest!

Christmas performance

Many thanks to all members of our community for this afternoon’s performance. Adults in the audience were highly receptive and supportive and pupils gave their all. The hard work paid off! The teachers had a surprise of their own too (shhh…it’s a secret for those coming tonight).

Hengistbury Head

Yesterday, year 6 visited Hengistbury Head as part of our U.K. and coasts topic. We looked at the longshore drift at the beach and identified coastal defences put in place. We pointed out local landmarks and investigated the geology and erosion of the cliff. In addition, we explored the visitor centre. What was your favourite activity? What did you learn?

Sports Day

Our Sports Day was held last week. Although we could not all be winners in every event, everyone’s attitude and effort meant that we all won and had a great morning. Congratulations to everyone for their enthusiasm and team work – the support for our fellow students was excellent.

The teachers also got involved in the competitive spirit – congratulations to the Year Four staff for their victory.

The Hooper Learning Resource Centre

State of the art technology has come to QPA.

Last week, our previous C.E.O., Mr Hooper, opened our brand new resource centre. There are brand new computers, that can magically disappear into the tables. We also have a brand new library which is being freshly stocked. What a centre of knowledge we now have. Our students will benefit in so many ways.
