We would like to take the opportunity on this, the Winter Solstice, to wish our families a very Happy Christmas. The star that shone over Bethlehem is making its first appearance in 800 years - a sign of hope for 2021?

NEW!

Science week took place this year from November 8th to 15th and we had a blast in Hollypark celebrating this yearly event. Classes logged onto virtual shows based on a variety of scientific topics from investigating bouncing bubbles to learning about the work of forensic science. Classes then conducted their very own experiments and investigations in their classrooms.

A fun and memorable week that Einstein himself would have been very proud of. There’s definitely some budding young scientist in our midst. Check out some of our videos of our experiments in action!

The girls also learnt about the works of prominent scientists and their achievements and some classes even tested their scientific knowledge in a class science quiz.
