Message from Secondary - 21 September

21 September 2018

This week featured the first Academic Review Evening of the year with Monday’s focus being on Year 11 and Year 13. AREs are a very important element of our communication with parents and we believe that during those short meetings involving teacher, parent and student, far more meaningful and in-depth feedback can be shared than it can through written reports. This is why we schedule three AREs for most year groups throughout the year, with the next ones being on 16th and 18th October for Key Stage 3, followed by the Year 10 and 12 ARE on 23rd October. Parents of students in those year groups will receive a letter detailing the appointment booking system on Monday 8th October, while the booking system for appointments will open on Tuesday 9th October.

  • Tie Tuesday Laughing

Next week, the focus is very much on internationalism with our celebration of the multiple nationalities within the school. I often think how fortunate our students are to have the opportunity to learn and socialise alongside peers from so many different parts of the world. The difference this makes to their outlook, knowledge and understanding cannot be underestimated so events like our International Day carry real significance.

On Tuesday, we start with an International Quiz in which our four houses will compete on questions about different countries from around the world. Then on Thursday, our International Day features the Parade of Nations and we encourage all students to dress in their national costumes for this occasion. The International Food Fair takes place in late morning going on to lunchtime and there will also be a programme of music and culture in C block as this takes place.

One very impressive characteristic of our student body is their willingness to initiate projects whether they are charity-based, raising awareness or about enriching school life. One such project which has really impressed me is Team Tie Tuesday which has been started by a group of Year 12 students. They are selling special ties in the colours of the four houses to raise funds for Shanghai sunrise. Students will then be able to wear those ties on Tuesdays. In order to order ties, there are QR codes on the electronic screens around the school.

Next week, we will start the process of forming our new student leadership committees. In this afternoon’s assembly, Josephin Ebeling and Sarah Thornton, two of our student leaders,  talked about the benefits of getting involved in student leadership in terms of the skills that could be developed including confidence, organisation and communication. Students in Years 7 to 12 will be able to apply for roles on the four student committees between the 25th and the 28th September.

Finally, a reminder that Monday is a public holiday so school will not be open. I wish you all a very pleasant long weekend.
