Musician of the Term
The winner this term is someone who has always worked conscientiously and demonstrated enormous enthusiasm over several years in all aspects of music at St. Helen’s College. A tremendous well done to Seun O! Seun started out by singing in the Junior Choir, then moved up to the Senior Choir in Year 4. From there, she was selected to join the prestigious Chamber Choir and has reliably and regularly attended both, performing in music classes, school assemblies and concerts, including singing in the Barnardo's final at the Royal Festival Hall.
Seun has an excellent understanding of music and is able to apply this knowledge successfully in her classwork. She is a fluent recorder player and a member of the orchestra. She is working towards Grade 3 on the piano and is rapidly progressing towards taking her Grade 5 examination on the flute this summer.
Sports Personality of the Term
Sophie has represented the school in all senior teams this term, including the basketball, swimming and gymnastics teams, and was a member of the very successful netball and handball teams who won District competitions to become champions this term. Sophie always leads others by example, showing great determination and outstanding effort to achieve the best performance possible each time she plays.
She plays for Denham Ladies' Football Club and Blaze Netball Club at the weekends and we are delighted to hear that she has just been selected to attend U12 county netball trials later this month. This is a super achievement as she will be playing up an age group. Congratulations to Sophie!
