The Second Half of Michaelmas Term started off with the solemnity of Remembrance Day, followed by the FOC Fireworks evening, and ended with snowy Christmas concerts, charity events and a Carol Evening. But there was so much more in between.

Bringing the whole Chigwell Community together to pay our respects on Remembrance Day is an annual tradition, with all employees including support staff, teaching staff and everyone who contributes to the running of the school, gathering for prayers and a moment of silence.

The Friends of Chigwell Fireworks evening was a family event with plenty to do and eat and see as top field was decked out to entertain the school community. There were rides and games for the children with hot food and drink. Games and children's tatoos inside out of the cold.

And of course, fireworks - Alannah's (MVI) photos

Charitable Events featured throughout the second half of term. Key Stage Two ambassadors and Senior School Ambassadors led pupils in understanding the need for events such as Anti-Bullying Week, Children in Need and Black HIstory Month. The money raised from these events went to our designated charities.


Pupils not only had wonderful opportunities to go out and experience curriculum-related events and activities - many visitors brought their expertise to pupils in school.
