In preparation of the Ark Paddington Green Academy/King Solomon Academy merge, we will be inviting families of King Solomon and Paddington Green, prospective parents and members of the local community to view both school sites. There are 3 more opportunities to do this, with the next one taking place Tuesday, 20th November at 9am. You do not have to book in advance, but we do ask that you arrive on time for a prompt start.
On the 20th, the morning will begin at King Solomon with a presentation and site tour from the Principal, Max Haimendorf. The group will then walk over to the Ark Paddington Green site, for a tour and a brief Q&A session. If you are unable to make this, you are welcome to attend any of the other dates scheduled. These are listed below:
Last week, Year 5 Imperial went for a three days and two nights residential. This is the first Paddington Green residential in 5 years! The experience was an enormous success, and the children’s participation in every activity and behaviour throughout the three days was exceptional. We were most impressed with how well they worked with their partners in supporting and encouraging them in every task.
In total, 57 Star of the Day certificates were awarded during our time away, which is a wonderful indication of how proud we were of their achievements. Ms. Moir, Mr O’Gorman and Mrs Deeks, along with all the children, experienced many memorable activities including orienteering, a blindfold trail, caving, climbing boulders, building shelters, a tree rope challenge in harnesses and team challenges. Mrs Deeks’ favourite activities were the night walk and singing songs while munching scrumptious roasted marshmallows around a campfire.
