It was absolutely fantastic for our school community to come together this morning for our inaugural Lambrook Big Breakfast and what a fabulous spread on offer ranging from fresh fruit, pancakes, eggs in all forms, porridge and juices of all types and flavours; all totally healthy, of course!

It was wonderful to see so many happy faces collectively, albeit across multiple screens! Despite the physical distance between the Lambrook Community over these past weeks, it has been such a joy to witness the Lambrook spirit from each household and to see such positivity and enthusiasm from the children as they have embraced their remote learning in their unswerving characteristic manner.

So much has taken place, both in and out of the virtual classroom, in such a short space of time. Since the start of the Lent term, our staff have continued to come up with some incredibly creative ways to teach from a distance, with pupils being equally creative in their response. In addition, the children have covered thousands of kilometres ‘Around the World’ in their Games lessons, entered House Challenges (resulting in some major household clear up operations!), undertaken online exams, impressed their future schools at interview, embraced Eco resolutions, better understood the importance of Mental Health and have partaken in performing arts lessons; I am not sure we could have fitted much more in! I am so very proud of each and every child and all that they have achieved, both individually and collectively.

As ever, thank you for your support from home behind the scenes (or screens!), enabling the children to be ready to learn each day. We have been so encouraged by your messages of appreciation and I am again reminded that it is a privilege to work in such a supportive community. I sense that the half term break has come at just the right time for us all and hopefully an opportunity to draw away from screens for a little while at least. Although travel plans are somewhat different to a normal February half term, at least the temperatures are somewhat similar to Méribel!
