We are delighted to share the latest newsletter from Yavneh Girls, edited by Aviva Shalom Y10.
We have a fabulously popular club every Thursday called Nish Nosh Parsh in memory of Maya Dee who used her break time to have some Nosh and a thought on the 'Parsh'. Year 6 were able to cash in and join NNP before they left.
Martin Hyman addressed the girls and spoke about his Mother's (Ilse Beres) miraculous escape from Nazi Europe on the Kinder transport to England aged just 13.
Yavneh Girls celebrated Tu Bishvat by creating a 3D Al Hamichya card with the use of clay, paint and varnish. They were then divided into groups to research the Birkat Mai'ain Shalosh and find out what we are asking for in this Bracha and over which foods it is said. Any girl who learns Al Hamichya by heart will be rewarded with a voucher for some pizza and an ice coffee in 3 bakers.
We were very excited that the primary school taster day coincided with Tu Bishvat so that Year 6 could take part in the creative activity.
YG had a competition during the month of Kislev. 'A little bit of light dispels much darkness'.
Each girl was asked to perform acts of kindness for their family and at School (represented by a candle). Girls who had a minimum of 5 candles were rewarded.
Yavneh girls are selling raffle tickets to raise money for Israeli soldiers and displaced families. Fabulous prizes to be won.
Treats for Rosh Chodesh Teves treats of Bingo, Bag Making, hot chocolate and - of course - Mrs Hoffner's chocolate cake.

A very successful Big sister/little sister programme was enjoyed by all. The girls created an original unified flag of Israel. This event was arranged by Rebecca Harris.

Chodesh Tov! The new month of Cheshvan has begun! As a way of celebrating the start of this month, we enjoyed hot chocolate and doughnuts during morning break. Furthermore, in order to introduce the theme of this month, “Where can I find Hashem?” during lunch, Mrs Wolf kindly brought us in chocolates! In order to harness the theme of this month, there was a surprise little piece of paper within each wrapper asking us the same question – where can we find Hashem today?!
Every day, Hashem sets the scene and provides the props – we are simply actors on the stage – we cannot choose the events of our day, but only how we ‘colour’ it; will we make it dull and grey, or bright and vibrant? Sometimes the scene Hashem sets for us appears to be challenging, difficult or painful, but it really is up to us as to what we choose our perspective to be on the situation.
When we understand that Hashem personally prepares each step of our day (הַמֵּכִין מִצְעֲדֵי גָֽבֶר), it reminds us that it is up to us to discover Hashem’s presence within our mundane lives.
The project of this month is to try and spot the little winks that Hashem sends us – whether it be that the rain stopped while you walked to school, or you managed to score well in a test. These little things can just change our whole perspective and really do add that colour into our lives.
Especially during these difficult times, it’s important to keep in mind that these little miracles are reminders from Hashem that He is with us, and that because He cares deeply for Am Yisrael, He will constantly remain at our side.
