6th February 2019 – A 6 Month Catch Up

We’ve been very remiss in not posting any of our news on the website but hopefully you have seen some of the great things we have been doing – or the kids have been doing with our support – on Facebook and Twitter.  But here’s a very quick catch up of six months of news:

Christopher continues to make excellent progress in his piano lessons.  He’s soon going to be taking his Grade 5 exam in March and we are confident of success.

Our two gymnasts, Emma and Layla-Belle are enjoying their lessons at AllStarz in New Addington and their coaches tell us they are making good progress.  But we also have some evidence!!

Dancing sisters Aliyah and Soraya are moving onwards and upwards with Dance with Grace.  They are having classes in a number of different types of dance and have taken part in several performances, showing off what they have learnt.  Keep it up girls!


Ciara continues with her Irish dancing at the Conor Academy.  She is improving with every session and recently competed in the Surrey Championships.  Here she is in her costume, which we contributed towards to make sure she looks the part every time she competes.  Glad we don’t have to wash and iron it though!



The Art Masterclass at Rowdown has continued on a weekly basis during school term time and the art being produced is very impressive indeed.  In November we set up a similar Art Masterclass at Fairchildes school so we now have around 15 pupils getting some expert tuition in all things art.  Here’s a gallery of some of the recent output at the two schools.
