Creativity & Learning …Lots Of It!
This week has flown by in whirr of learning and creativity. All students were engaged in PSD day yesterday – the sessions I visited were engaging and our students were clearly thinking about issues which concern them as individuals and members of society. My thanks to Mr Grant for organising such an interesting day for our students and to all the staff and outside speakers who contributed to the events and sessions.
On Wednesday evening Light Hall was inundated with visitors for the Careers Convention. Despite the dreadful weather there was a very good turnout and our older students had the opportunity to find out what is available to them in terms of education, employment and training post 16. We are very grateful to everyone who gave up their time to share ideas and opportunities with our students.
As well as teaching great lessons, many of our staff have put pen to paper in our poetry writing extravaganza; Mr Cobley received many entries in the Haiku competition – the winning entry – judged by year 10 is as follows:
Be not mindless slaves
Human imprints left on earth
Trod on light and hope
Our great mathematicians have shone this week – with many of them being nominated for the Golden Book. The following students have been commended this week: Joshua Allwood, Charlotte Leeson, Thomas Harper, Thomas Evans, Louise Rippon, Chloe Earp, Humaira Kauser, Jessie Marshall, Abbie Lloyd and Leah Faulkner. Very well done to them all.
We have experienced success in sport this week – with all of our netball teams winning all of their matches this week – congratulations to all the girls involved and we wish them continued success for the rest of the season.
My very best wishes for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
