Congratulations to Lizzie from Prep 2, who won third place at Bangor Speech and Drama Festival for her performance of 'A Lonely Dragon' by Theresa Heine.
Some students from the main school visited our Prep 3 Chinese Restaurant as part of their Health and Social Care course. They were treated to some delicious food, (handmade by us) and we told them all about Chinese New Year.
On the 15th December 2017 the Prep Department held an Elf Day to raise money for The Alzheimer's Society. We had visiting speakers from The Alzheimer's Society come into speak to us about what the money raised would be used for and what it is like to live with someone with dementia. The whole department (including teachers) dressed as elves for the day. We all learnt a lot and had lots of fun too. In total over £110 pounds was raised for this worthy cause.
As part of European Languages Day, Prep 2 and 3 completed a challenge to make European flags out of Lego bricks.

Welcome to a new school year. I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer holiday! Below is a list of after school clubs for this autumn term and attached is a yearly overview of clubs on offer......

On Thursday 7th April 2016 Prep 1 and 3 visited The Ark Open Farm. Have a look at our photographs!
On Friday 29th April Prep 1, 2 & 3 took part in a ‘Farm to Fork’ workshop at Tesco Castlebawn. The ‘Farm to Fork’ initiative helps children learn where their food comes from by exploring the fruit and vegetable aisle, the bakery and fish counters and chillers, as well as tasting some exciting new food. The children had a super day! A massive thank you to Campbell Keating at Tesco Castlebawn for inviting us along.
European Day of Languages occurs on 26th September every year. Regent House Prep pupils intend to join in the celebration this year.
Each class has chosen one European country to focus on. Please see the list below:
P1 – Germany
P2 – Italy
P3 – Holland
P4 – France
P5 – Spain
P6 – Ireland
P7 – Poland
We intend to start the day with a special assembly when the children will hear about flags and national costumes, traditional food and European folktales. Teachers may even attempt to dazzle with their linguistic skills!
The children will also be encouraged to join the celebrations by bringing in traditional food from their chosen European Country. We hope to set up ‘international food stalls’ in the dining hall around break time on Friday 25th September. The pupils will be involved in decorating and running their stall and all will be invited to sample the produce.
I would remind you that Regent House is a nut free school. Please make your child’s class teacher aware of any allergies and feel free to provide an alternative snack for your child.
On this day the children may come to school dressed in the colours of the flag of the country corresponding to his/her class choice. For example a red t-shirt or a blue scarf would suffice.
We hope your child enjoys these celebrations!
