Newly appointed prefects, head girl and head boy undertook their first official duties at yesterday's Open Day.
We were so impressed with your conduct. You represented your school with such pride and enthusiasm. Feedback from parents has been incredibly positive. You came across as warm and welcoming, very informative and well mannered pupils. Huge thanks and congratulations from us all.
However, the thanks and congratulations do not stop here. This year we introduced class ambassadors who fulfilled another incredibly important role in welcoming parents into their classes with confidence and energy. Well done to you all!
And lastly, a big thank you to everyone, both staff and children alike, for embracing Open Day and doing what you do best!

Garsington Opera Youth Company Audition
On Wednesday 3rd October, 31 of our year 4, 5 and 6 children took part in a fun workshop audition for Garsington Opera Youth Company. I was so enormously impressed with all of the children who took part. They were beautifully behaved and focused, listening carefully to every instruction before singing and acting with such energy, confidence and enthusiasm. I felt so proud whilst watching the children audition; they were a real credit to Stokenchurch Primary.
Whether offered a place or not, every child who auditioned deserves this gold book mention. The Garsington Team asked me to say a big thank you and well done to all of the children.

David Nawaz in 5WB presented me with a powerpoint and hard copy that he'd printed on a memory stick for me to take home containing a presentation of all the French Language, vocabulary, general knowledge that he could recall (from way back in year 3 when he began French) it was clear, fun and so accurate. It must have taken him ages to prepare. He is so committed in every lesson and participates wholeheartedly. I am hugely proud of him!

Mrs.Burns had the absolute pleasure of accompanying 29 Year 4 children to Garsington on a very hot, but beautifully sunny day in July just recently. Whilst the venue provided the perfect setting, the children put on a performance of the highest order; along with 150 other children, they performed a specially adapted version of Mozart's 'The Magic Flute', complete with 3 professional opera singers!
The children rose to the occasion in true Stokenchurch style and impressed both staff and parents with their enthusiasm, their singing prowess and their exemplary behaviour throughout the day.
Well done children! You helped to create a truly wonderful and very memorable occasion for all!
