Timely Talk

On Wednesday this week, those in Years 6, 7 and 8 will receive a talk, given by members of our Science Department, aiming to make students more informed about the way their body changes, personal hygiene, dress, and personal space. Some parents may wish to speak of these topics with their children first, or follow up in other ways on the information presented. We encourage parents to be alert to their children’s growth rates, which may necessitate the provision of longer trousers or skirts, or more generous shirts or blouses.
