Senior High Notes 24th September 2021

There was a real buzz in school today with the first House competition of the year taking place. It was wonderful to have so many students taking part or spectating. There will be many opportunities for our students to take part in a wide variety of competitions, representing their house, over the course of this year. Wherever a student’s talent lies there will be an opportunity from football to bench ball, house challenge, debating and even house gardening.

I have really enjoyed visiting Primary classrooms this week, seeing fabulous learning taking place. Dr Ngwerume took Year 5 outside for their science lesson, where they had created the planets and were mapping out the solar system in the playground. Year 1 were particularly active in their French lesson with Madame Seymour, with pupils being asked to Levez-vous! (stand up) and Levez votre main droite. I have also heard so much wonderful singing in music as Mrs Cooke and our pupils prepare for Harvest Festival.

I very much enjoyed welcoming parents of U3, L4 and new U4s in person to school last night to hear presentations on how we support all of our students both academically and pastorally through their school journey. This morning in my first live assembly on Teams we looked ahead to the journey our students will go on this year. I shared this picture of a walk I used to enjoy every day when I lived in Scotland.
