Twelve tweets of CLSG Christmas and Hanukkah

A small festive tribute in honour of the religious festivals over the holidays that many of our pupils will be celebrating: Christmas and Hannukah and with thanks from me for a  great first term at wonderful City Girls.

It’s a time to count blessings for all of us, from any or no religion. Here are some of mine. I’m surrounded by the liveliest and most entertaining people: staff and girls, who care about each other and the world, who are unstuffy and fun and charming and who love, love, love their learning.

So in a spirited doggerel tribute:

On the first day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Great learning everywhere that’s a total joy to see.

On the second day of Hanukkah CLSG pupils gave to me: A climate change panel - they care about sustainability.

On the 3rd day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Open door ideas, cake and your brilliant company.

On the 4th Day of Hanukkah CLSG pupils gave to me: Kindness and respect and passion for inclusivity!

On the 5th Day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Fab student leaders – thanks senior Com. & HGT for a periods assembly!

On the 6th day of Hanukkah CLSG pupils gave to me: Runners leaping round the heath or the High wall so game-ly!

On the 7th day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: STEM-soaring– (maths challenge, Arkwright) so gracefully!

On the 8th day of Hanukkah CLSG pupils gave to me: Lots of “maids a-milking” us to support Street Child’s charity!

On the 9th Day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Acting, singing and dancing through Pink Mist and wizardly!

On the 10th Day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Way more than 10 pipers piping – music of utter beauty.

On the 11th Day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Debating, mooting and discussions of huge quality-y.

On the 12th day of Christmas CLSG pupils gave to me: Cards and jumpers, a panto and much festive jollity.

Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to all at CLSG.
