Musicians in the making

December 18, 2017

There are plenty of opportunities for pupils to perform at Thames in productions, music evenings and concerts. We recently enjoyed a wonderful evening of carols, readings, drama and dance at our annual Christmas Carol Concert at St Mark's Battersea Rise. In November we held a musical evening when our choirs, vocalists and instrumentalists performed for parents. To see some highlights from the evening click here Our Year 7 choir have taken their musicianship outside the school, taking part in a community carol concert at York Road Library run by the York Road/Winstanley Regeneration Project

Running for a cause

December 14, 2017

Well done to all our pupils who took part in this year’s sponsored cross country in aid of Go MAD in Tanzania and A21 Campaign. We have raised over £6,500! In total our pupils ran 844 km with Jemima beating the school record by completing 13k!  The money raised will support mobile health clinics in the Diocese of Mara, Tanzania, and A21 Campaign’s crisis care shelters for victims of human trafficking. If you would like to find out more about Thames' support of these charities, Sophia, Year 11, has written an article for the Richmond & Twickenham Times as part of the Newsquest Young Reporter Scheme.

Keeping young people safe

December 14, 2017

In Anti-Bullying week pupils learnt about e-safety, how to handle cyberbullying and report incidents via childnet.com at www.childnet.com/resources/how-to-make-a-report. Some also had the opportunity to discuss the pressures around sexting and how to deal with them. We recommend this downloadable leaflet for parents concerned about their child's safety and wellbeing online. This term Year 7 took part in an interactive drama workshop, Streetwise, to learn how to keep safe on the road and the risks of being a young pedestrian.
