The Pajama Game

December 4, 2018

Next year's show will be The Pajama Game!

The Pajama Game is a musical based on the 1953 novel 7½ Cents by Richard Bissell. The book is by George Abbott and Richard Bissell; the music and lyrics are by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. The story deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where workers' demands for a seven-and-a-half cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.

Pupils can sign up for auditions which will take place immediately after Christmas.

Successful Cross Country run in aid of Go MAD

November 22, 2018

On a freezing cold afternoon our brave and determined pupils ventured up to Wandsworth Common for our annual Sponsored Cross Country run in aid of Go MAD, Tanzania.  Every student put in a fantastic effort to push themselves around lap after lap knowing that their momentary pain would raise funds and make a real difference  to the people we support in Tanzania.  Jed was our leading boy running 15km.  Cecilia (year 7) was our leading girl running 12km.  The total distance run by the school was 875km. Funds and pledges are still coming in and being counted. We will share the total funds raised in due course!

Freya, Year 8, and Ezra, Year 9, represented Thames in a debating competition run by the English Speaking Union, held at Francis Holland School. They were given the motion to propose: ‘This house would weight votes such that the younger the voter, the more powerful their vote.’  Feedback was extremely positive with judges commenting on the engaging delivery of their speeches and confident responses to their much older opposing team, Emanuel sixth formers. Although they did not get through to the next round, their motion obtained the most support from the floor. They were a great credit to the school.
