On Wednesday all students enjoyed a screen-free day to rest their eyes and experience a different type of learning.

Whilst Fifth and above had some off-screen directed reading, the Fourth to Lower Fifth focused on practical activities grouped under the five ACE headings: Physical Health and Wellbeing, Mind and Spirit, Global Awareness, Skills for Life and Creativity and Culture.

These five headings are how we group more than 100 Co-Curricular activities that run in a normal school week, many of which are continuing remotely throughout lockdown. Girls are encouraged to choose activities from all five areas to provide breadth and balance, and on Wednesday the students were asked to choose five activities, one from each category.

Highlights included baking, reading, running, walking, tie-dying and even aerial yoga!
