Last Friday we held a Remembrance Assembly for the whole of the Secondary school. The assembly was organised by the Year 8 History class of Mr Keys, and we heard about the research they had done about the people from Dubravka who had died in WWII. On display was the giant poppy that students had created outside the Art room during the week. The poppy was taken later to the British Embassy where it is now on display.
This week letters went home to parents of Year 9, Year 11 and Year 13 about the next Parent drop-in, which takes place next week on 23rd November. Booking appointments could not be easier using the CHQ online system and we expect a good turnout again from parents. This is an opportune time for parents of Year 11 and Year 13 students especially to consult with subject teachers just before the mock examinations. If you are experiencing difficulty with the booking system, then please contact Libusa Mikleticova who is our online appointment coordinator. I look forward to meeting with parents next week.
Finally, the CEM assessment results are now in school. We are just finishing the unpacking of the data so that we can start to work with it to support individual student development. The assessments involved students in Year 7, Year 10 and Year 12 earlier this term, plus any students who had not previously done them in these year groups last year. As I have done in the past, I am now inviting individual parents to come and see me to discuss their own child’s results. If you would like to make an appointment to see me, then please contact my PA, Libusa Mikleticova. I look forward to seeing you.
