Message from the Headteacher, Ms A. Sharma:
On Thursday, our Year 11 students attended school in their professional dress ready to impress employers in a mock interview. The feedback from the employers from various fields who conducted the mock interviews was very positive and helpful. The students took this exercise seriously and have talked about how they are going to improve their interview technique even further. This is all part of our work to prepare students for life.
We are collecting dry, long-life food items such as pasta, rice, tinned food, lentils etc. to help needy families and the local food bank. If you are able to donate any items, please send them via your child to the admin office. No donation is too small. Thank you for your support in advance.
A reminder that the school will be closed tomorrow on Friday 2nd December, students will return back to school as normal on Monday 5th December 2022.
Have a great weekend.

Visit from Arit Anderson
Arit Anderson from Gardeners’ World visited Villiers High School to discuss our landscape and how we can get students to learn from our environment, interact with their natural habitat and our Villiers future landscaping projects.
Ealing STARS project
We were asked (2 weeks ago) by the Ealing STARS project to provide the song for this year’s sustainable travel project. We were given the lyrics and asked to sing them to the melody of ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’. Coincidentally, this is the song our choir was currently rehearsing, although a’ la pentatonic, which is a different arrangement but close enough to deem it a doable task in such a short time. Ms Krenca invited members of the choir to rehearse and record with her after school and the finished product is ready to watch. Mr Lucas dealt with the sound and video recording, editing, and the production of this can be seen by clicking on the link given below. We will appear on Twitter from 1st December and other schools will be asked to learn the words and sing along. This would also assist the school in gaining accreditation toward the Ealing STARS community project award. https://youtu.be/gFefW0IMe1o
Taekwondo European championship
A massive well done to Lamise 7E who has just come back from Malta having competed in her first ever major European Championship. She went through a selection process back in September and was chosen to represent Great Britain and form part of the national team. She did exceptionally well and fought her little heart out but lost to the World Number 10 seed from Greece who was also 3 years older than her. It has been a great experience for Lamise and she hopes that she will have the opportunity to be selected again next year. There is no rest for her as she is competing again this weekend for her final tournament of the year, we wish her the very best of luck.

Message to parents of Year 11 – 13 students
Students sitting any exams next summer need to be available for the full exam period. They cannot book holidays until Thursday 29th June onwards.
They will not know their summer exam timetable until next year, as some exams are still being moved due to clashes. However, regardless of when their last exam is, they must be available up until Wednesday 28th June, as this is the contingency day, alongside two contingency afternoons on Thursday 8th and Thursday 15th June.
Contingency dates are added in case there is a national or local emergency and an exam has to be moved and students must be available for this.
We have officially started rehearsals for this year’s production of ‘Arabian Nights’. We are very excited for you to see it!

With the dark nights drawing in, please make plans for your child to get home safely whether that involves picking them up or arranging for them to walk home with an older student in the cast. They are working very hard and we would like all of them to continue attending.
