On Thursday, year 6 children, soon to be leaving us for secondary school, were treated to a lunch time barbeque with burgers, hot dogs and ice-cream. Having an extended break they were able to participate in lots of fun activities such as a slip-n-slide, bouncy castle and playing football against the teaching staff until shortly before home time. The fun experience was continued after school when all the children attending our breakfast and afterschool club were also able to enjoy the same wonderful fun activities and delicious treats.
Friday the 13th July, a day and date notoriously thought to be superstitiously unlucky, was ironically quite lucky for many. With warm, sunny weather setting the scene in the early afternoon, children across all year groups entertained parents and carers with some hard-practiced and wonderfully inventive dance routines.
Our summer fair was thereafter officially opened by our local MP Rosie Duffield, allowing everyone the opportunity to visit stalls selling lots of exciting things, to partake in a host of various activities and raffles, or even satisfy their taste buds by visiting the burger and hotdog stand. Thank you to everyone for your support.
July 2018 saw our Year 6's present Aladdin at the University of Kent's Gulbenkian Theatre in Canterbury and as usual, the children leapt in with full enthusiasm. Hard work and resilience paid off and our soon-to-be secondary schoolers wowed audiences and produced a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable show. Well done children!
Children across all year groups at St. Stephen's Junior took to the sports field for Race for Life in an extremely enthusiastic effort to raise awareness and money in support of cancer research.
Children were allowed to run or walk around a predefined track on the sports field and were provided with water and delicious fresh fruit to aid them in their valiant efforts.
