Carmel’s Easter Treasure Hunt

By | FS2, House Carmel, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Carmel’s Easter Treasure Hunt was a great success today. We will announce the winning house in  collective worship tomorrow.

A huge thank you to the House Carmel’s Leaders. They organised the whole day and demonstrated their superb leadership skills.


The PTA rewarded all children with a chocolate egg- this was a welcome treat after the fast pace treasure hunt -in the cold Spring air!

I am very happy to be back at St Albans after spending last Year in Doncaster and am especially excited to be back in Y5! I have lots of exciting topics planned for the year and will be starting with Space.

In my role as Head of School I work closely with all stakeholders to ensure the St Albans, and all of those who are part of the St Albans school community, are the best that they can be.
