Our graduating Year 13 class dressed up to mark their last day at school and some of the fun they got up to on their last day...
Our Year 13s departed with good humour but worked to the end. Tuesday saw them dress in 80’s clothes and they were doing aerobics to 80’s pop songs in the school quad from 7am. For some it was the earliest they have ever been in to school! There were special send offs from the students that were respectful but humorous. Mrs White’s office was filled with balloons (I think the students put them there however it may have been Mrs White!) and the IB Co-ordinator Mr Wasey had a specially wrapped present left for him - his entire desk was wrapped up in newspaper!
The pupils were back at work by the end of registration and it was great to see their commitment to revising and working with their teachers continue to the end of the school day. They can all leave with their heads held high as fantastic examples of good behaviour and we wish them well on the IB exams that start on Monday.
Our Year 11s leave today and similarly it is work until the end for them. Of course we wish to see them back on our Pre-IB programme in June, but even before that they have continuous revision programmes in between the busy exam schedule. An important reminder for all CIE exams that start in the afternoon is that all pupils must be in the LRC as the starting point before 1pm. This is an exam board stipulation that they are supervised from that time. Please check this with your children regularly so that they will be on time. We wish our Year 11s well with their preparation and they can of course ask teachers at any time via email if there is anything they are concerned about linked to revision. If they are not sure who to ask please feel free to send an email to me (email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will pass it on to the relevant person to ensure someone replies as quickly as possible.
For the rest of us lucky enough not to be exam stressed, it is a long weekend and the sun will shine in Shanghai. Have a relaxing time.
