On Thursday 29th of November The EGS music department took a group of students to attend a violin masterclass with the amazing Jeanine Thorpe at Mount House School in Hadley Wood.
Our students had the unique chance to get 1:1 advice from Jeanine -within minutes of working with her, the students had noticeably improved and they each left the session with some important practice points.
The day was capped off by an incredible show of virtuosity, musicality and passion displayed by Jeanine in an evening recital.
As we returned to school we were all left with a sense of bemusement, enthusiasm and inspiration.
It was a trip we will not be forgetting for quite a while.
EGS Gardening Club is back up and running again for its second year and we are happy to welcome new members. The club runs every Wednesday lunchtime at 1.30 and other activities are also run over the course of the year such as a visiting horticulturist, a chef’s workshop, a visit to an organic nursery and a trip to the local market to sell our produce.
Last year proved very successful with the students, who enjoyed selling their homegrown vegetables and plants at Enfield Town market. This year we are hoping to grow a healthy crop of herbs and vegetables to use in our practical food lessons, stimulating an interest in food provenance and an appreciation for the environment.
Over the last couple of weeks, we have been preparing our raised beds and planting chard, kale and lettuce. We have also been using the compost bin that we built last year to recycle our food waste from the Food Technology kitchen. If you are interested in joining this club, please speak to Mrs Broadley, Mrs Turbett or Mrs Mittins.
Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, is the most popular of all the festivals from South Asia. It is also an occasion for celebration by Jains and Sikhs. Come along and see our display in the library!
