The Busy Bees of Queen’s Gate – An Autumn Term Round Up
Posted on 12 December 2017 by Miss Amy Hinds, Communications Officer
Last Friday saw the end of a hugely busy Autumn Term at Queen’s Gate, with more events and activities than ever! You can read all about Autumn Term in the QG News.
During our Christmas celebrations, the girls worked extremely hard for events including the Kids for Kids Christmas Concert at St Peter’s Eaton Square, the annual Carol Service, the Junior School Nativity, and Christmas favourite, the staff and Sixth Form Pantomime.
The Junior School took part in British Food Fortnight in October, with visits from food producers and trips to local ecology centres and farms, to learn further about where our food comes from. The girls also enjoyed meeting the 10 chicks that were born at Queen’s Gate as part of the Living Eggs programme.
In the Senior School, girls have been excelling at Model United Nations at Royal Russell School and Cambridge University, and our Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award candidates began their series of expeditions on Exmoor over half-term. Charity activities for the term have resulted in raising over £6,300 for causes including Guide Dogs for the Blind, Macmillan Cancer Care, Movember and Royal Trinity Hospice.
From all of us at Queen’s Gate, we wish everyone a wonderful Christmas break, and look forward to seeing you all in 2018!
