Secondary Update – From Mr Simon Graves 18/03/2016

Exam season is finally upon us with the first AS/A level exams in ICT taking place next week. As well as wishing all of our students luck, it is worth remembering the key points made in assembly this week to our older students, and also by Mr Reid and me at the Parents’ Seminar on Thursday evening:

·      Revise sensibly – use a range of techniques and styles, and do it in short bursts;

·      Plan exactly what you are going to revise on your revision timetable;

·      Eat, drink and sleep healthily – there’s no point trying to take an exam on four hours’ sleep. Look after your body;

·      Relax. You need to have down time too, otherwise the stress will simply get too much.

This week in secondary we have celebrated Science Week, with the students participating in a range of events, run largely by the students themselves.

On Tuesday, 22 March, we are hosting a second UK Universities Fair with over twenty top universities coming into school. The event will be open to students from 2pm and to the public from 3pm, and I do hope you will come along. It will give you a far greater understanding of admissions criteria and requirements and also of funding opportunities for studying in the UK.

We are also really excited to announce the dates for this year’s school productionOne More Day, which will showcase on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th April at 7pm. We do hope as many of you as possible will come along for what will be a truly spectacular show. Tickets will be available from next week.

You will be shortly receiving a letter from me and a short booklet outlining the fascinating story of one of our members of staff. Many students won’t even know her, but she’s one of the most important people here, because I wouldn’t be able to write to you now if it weren’t for her painstakingly translating these words into Vietnamese.

Ngoc was sent to New Zealand to study as a teenager, just as it is many parents’ dream to send their own children abroad to study. Please take the time to read her story, one that is both personal and pertinent, and reflect on the impact that our own aspirations can have on our children.

On Thursday morning our Head of English, Ms Sumpter, and our librarian, Co Truc, are running a coffee morning on supporting your child with reading. This is a really great opportunity for you to gain some expert advice on how to develop this vital skill with your child, and I do hope many of you will join us then

Have a wonderful weekend.
