Order form for 30th Anniversary JCS tea towels

Great gift idea, so easy to post!

John Colet 30 Year Anniversary Tea Towels

Dear Parents, Staff and Friends of the School

In 2015 our School will be 30 years old and to celebrate this wonderful anniversary the P&F have teamed up with the School and the Art Department to produce a commemorative tea towel.  Every child has drawn their own portrait, Class Teachers and Heads, and together with a special anniversary School logo, these artworks will be printed on the tea towel. 

There are two tea towels for the School split into Infants and Primary and the tea towels are premium quality 100% cotton.  A beautiful keepsake to pack away and treasure for generations to come!  They are also robust enough for general kitchen use (home, work & classroom), they make great lunch/library bags, just sew up circle your child - it’s instantly personalised!  Plus they make amazing presents - especially for Christmas!  Imagine the delight of Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles, Cousins, Godparents, Carers, Friends and Neighbours on receipt of your child’s fabulous portrait on this work of Art.

Rumour has it that the School previously produced

tea towels in 1990 and 2004.  Latest reports are that these

vintage pieces are now highly valuable collector items!

 Examples of our tea towels will be displayed in the P&F noticeboard.


Option 1 - If you wish to pay by cash or cheque (made payable to “John Colet P&F”) please complete the order form overleaf.  Please post this order form and payment in the tea towel post box. 

Option 2 - Or simply order online and pay by credit card at www.trybooking.com/FPBY

Deadline for orders is LAST DAY OF TERM 3 - Friday 19 September

Tea towel delivery mid November

(plenty of time to post for Christmas)

POSTAGE - These are ideal gifts to mail, costs are:

$1.40 Australia, $4.50 New Zealand, $4.65 Asia, $6.45 USA & UK

Pricing based on 1 tea towel, 1 card, with A4 sized envelope

(A4 size ie no deeper than 20mm or increases to parcel mail cost)



The School will NOT be holding stock, so please place your order ASAP so you don’t miss out (perhaps add on a spare or two for any after thoughts).  The more tea towels purchased, the bigger the discount to you, and the more funds that will be raised for our School.  Original artwork will be returned with orders.

We hope you support this initiative, and thank you for your order.

Getting performance ready for Shakespeare

Our Infants Shakespeare Festival is racing towards us.  Now is the time our youngest students are focusing on nailing their lines, projecting their voices, perfecting their gestures and really understanding the fine language of their scripts.

5:30- 6:00 pm            Second Class                            Much Ado About Nothing

The children perform in full costume and stage make-up, and while their plays are abridged, the fine language and nuance of Shakespeare is retained.

If you are interested in seeing these plays performed, contact our Registrar Mrs James to arrange a viewing.

Below are two snaps from today's classroom rehearsal of a key scene in Upper First's The Merchant of Venice.

Open Day is just one occasion where our different choirs showcase their talents

John Colet School has a long tradition in teaching children to sing fine music, and Open Day is just one occasion where our different choirs showcase their talents.  From L. van Beethoven to Andrew Lloyd Webber, every item the students performed was a standout.  Like if you agree.

Vice Consul to India 'enchanted' by our Sanskrit speakers

The Vice Consul of India Mr Harjeet Singh Sethi was impressed by our students' performances at our recent Sanskrit recitation finals.

He is pictured below with Primary aged winners Elliot, Felicity and Luke.  Elliot's performance was particularly impressive as he has only been learning Sanskrit for little over a term, having joined John Colet School on our Year 5 Scholarship program.

John Colet Sanskrit Recitation

John Colet Sanskrit Recitation
After Open Day, John Colet School gets ready for our Infants Shakespeare Festival (in early August, held at the school) in earnest.  More on Shakespeare in later blog posts.  In the meantime, we’ve been busy preparing for the Sanskrit Recitation Finals on Thursday 5th June.  We ask the Indian Consul General to attend, and some years he is able to fit it in to his busy schedule, and we are very lucky to have wonderful Sanskrit scholars attend as guest judges. This year Dr Gary Grohmann and Mrs Ineke Blakeman will do the judging.
