During the last week of July, we welcomed 53 Year 4 children from nearly 30 primary schools across London to our annual Summer School. Many teachers gave up time during the holiday to give our young visitors a rich and varied programme. We also invited a team from Debate Mate to deliver speaking skills workshops and confidence building exercises. We owe the success of this project very much to our 18 Paulina helpers who supervised the children during the whole week. They got fully involved in all the activities of the week, smoothed out a number of upsets (including stopping one boy from claiming a fourth helping of pudding!), laughed heartily in many games and, we trust, enjoyed the experience as much as we did.
