Our new Reception class have took to their French lessons with enthusiasm. A happy, lively lesson with Madame Allin. In only a short time you have been amazing and settled into school life at Stormont. Can’t wait for our on line concert!

What an extraordinary term, not the one we planned or are used to but we know that our Year 6 girls are resilient and have had the best start at Stormont School. We are proud of their achievements and will miss them greatly but it is a time to spread your wings and enjoy the coming years at your new school. How exciting?
We improvised together in this crazy time with bubbles and direction arrows, signs all over and how much hand gel can a girl use? We will see you again and say goodbye properly as it is only an au revoir for now. Your adaptation to home schooling, to Zoom lessons and a reverse request to log in and sit in front of a screen has been interesting. The Zoom concert and Prize Giving was a first, you have been amazing. Who would have known that Judge Rinder would have a special message for our Year 6 Stormont girls!
Enjoy the summer and we look forward to meeting up really soon.

We are pleased to announce that Kinnari P in Year 1 recently won First Prize in the IAPS iArt Competition.
This year IAPS ran a Fine Art competition which meant that there wasn’t a theme but it had to be a drawing, painting, printing, collage or sculpture. It was divided into 3 categories of ages. All the girls from Year 1 to Year 6 at Stormont produced a piece of artwork in their art lessons. Three pieces were sent in by Mrs Ruth Burgess, the Art Coordinator earlier in the year. In the Year 1 – 2 age group, Kinnari P submitted a collaged self-portrait. Annabella S in the Year 3 – 4 age group submitted a pen and ink drawing of fruit and vegetables and in the Year 5 – 6 age group, Amy S submitted a lino print of trees. All artwork was from primary observation.
Kinnari used coloured paper for her collage self-portrait and was a very good likeness. The girls used mirrors to record the shapes and detail they saw. The shapes were built up from the background and was completed over a series of lessons. Kinnari’s use of colour and proportion was exceptional.
Kinnari’s winning entry is now in our Head’s Gallery and we congratulate her for her effort and attention to detail. Well done.
