Walk to School Week 21st - 25th May 2018

Ark Little Ridge is joining other local schools to celebrate walking to school.  The challenge is for everyone in Hastings to walk to school every day next week during Walk to School Week and make a real difference to children’s happiness and wellbeing.  The school with the highest percentage of children walking will receive a trophy and 5 free lunchtime activity sessions led by Active Hastings.  So come on…….… get walking – it’s less stressful than trying to park!!

Budding Film Stars in, soon to be released, 'PAN' movie!

Last year, Finn Hatton (Y4 Cardiff) and his older brother Oscar, a former Ark Little Ridge pupil, were selected to do some filming in London for the soon to be released feature film PAN starring Hugh Jackman. Finn filmed a night time scene at a large disused Post Office in West Kensington which had been recreated into an Orphanage. Finn tells us he can remember the sounds of air raid sirens and the film director telling him and other children to run down stairs; he found this quite scary!

 

Fin also had his hair shaved off for a scene.  He really didn’t enjoy this, hence his glum expression!

 

Well done Finn and Oscar.  We look forward to seeing the film when it is released later this week on 9th October.
