Senior High Notes 5th February 2021

We can all think of at least one song that, when we hear it, triggers an emotional response. It might be a song that accompanied the first dance at your wedding, or a song that reminds you of something that has happened. That one song that is your go-to tune, it might bring back special memories or simply gets you up dancing when you really need it. For me, it is Wake Me Up by Avicii. It reminds me of the 4 years I spent living and working in the North of Scotland, it’s a song that really gets me going when I might not feel like it. I played this tune at the beginning of my assembly today, and it was lovely to see students and teachers alike bopping along to it.

Senior High Notes 29th January 2021

It was lovely to see so many of our senior students enjoying the wonderful snow that we had on Sunday. I really enjoyed seeing images of snowmen, children sledging and generally having fun with their families in the snow. Now that the snow has passed, it is important to keep in mind the importance of balancing work and a healthy dose of play and exercise.
